If you have an actuator box on the passenger front axle that may be disconnected or broken. If not remove the cover from the front differential and check the gears...they may be broken.

    It has a set of vacuum hoses that go to it

  • Richard Scordino Jan 14, 2010

    I work from memory and don't have a diagram of that, but I'll try to find one. If I do I'll send it to you. If I remember correctly though I think (not positive) the wires are to tell you what the box is doing, not to make it work.

    Just found two diagrams but they are for cherokee...likely similar. Command track and selec track both use vacuum controls and routing of hoses is different from both but they both get vacuum from the vacuum storage tank usually located inside the fender up near the front of the vehicle. If I remember correctly though all those lines are molded into a "gang plug" so it is difficult to mix them up.

Most vehicles with four wheel drive and positraction in the rear will have an "open" style differential up front. (unless modified for off road only use). An open diff will only spin the wheel with the least traction. The only way the other wheel would have spun is if that happened.
Reason front posi units aren't used on the street is that they make steering difficult.

If you have a square box mounted to the right front axle tube, make sure the vacuum lines are attached to it and that it's working. If it's OK, then you have likely either have a broken differential gear set, broken outer axle joint or axle itself. I'd bet on the vacuum hose though. They did away with that unit in later jeeps because it was always getting disconnected.

Transfer case locks into low gear but front wheels do not pull

You have to have your front hubs locked in for four-wheel drive to work

4 wheel drive light is on in my jeep

vacumn pod on the front axel is stuck on. Jack up the front wheels spin both tires at the same time and see if the front drive shaft turns. If it does the 4x4 on the axel is engaged. The front drive shaft on these should not turn when vacumn pod is disengaged. YJ's have a split axel on the right side inner axel shaft.

1987 Jeep YJ [Wrangler] so owner ship says''

Our Jeep Wrangler YJ's are equipped with a vacuum module on the front axle. It is used to engage the front axle when the transfercase is shifted into 4WD. Check the vacuum lines on the front axle to make sure they are connected. The passenger side axle shaft has a disconnect sleeve that is moved left and right by the vacuum.
