Vinson 4x4 problem

Vinson 500 4x4, when i push the switch the display shows 4x4, but it does not lock into 4 wheel drive.  Is there any common problems that cause this or is it irregular?  Also, it has been treated like a submarine if that makes much of a difference.

    mine did that back int sept 2005. I took it to the dealer and they said there are two"switches" one for 2x4 and one for 4x4 my 4x4 one was faulty they replaced it free even though it was out of warranty. They said the part was about $95 Canadian. The "switches" are those 2 plugins just above the 4x4 actuator as far as I can tell.
    Hope this helps. I am getting a buzzing noise from the front somtimes when I am in 4x4  might be from the actuator I hope it doesn't quit on me anytime soon they are like $250.

    Unbolt the actuator from the diff and turn the nut it turns and see if it engages manually. Leave the actuator pluged in and cycle the switch to see if the actuator moves.

    Mine done the same thing, ended up having a wire pulled out of ne of the sensor's.  It wasn't out all the way and missed it the first look over.  Pull all the connections apart and see if the wire connector is all the way in.

    the actuator gets full of mud,sand,water.take it apart clean it with water. that might work,if you dint burn it up.you also can tap on the actuator motor and push the 4x4 button in and out.because the mud,sand,water,makes it stick.hope thats sum help.

    The DVG Assembly (i think that is what it is called) on the side cycles the little gear each time the button is pushed. It is good but the 4x4 switch in the top is stuck in there, when the shop replaced the differential i guess the tightened it too tight.  Does the 4x4 switch click too? Or is it just the actuator?

    i've been having the same problem with mine. this weekend i took the actuator off and it was not working. i took it apart and cleaned it out really good and it works now but i think i still have a bad switch because when i hit the button it will go into 4wd but when i hit the button again it wont go back into 2wd. i think it is the switch on the top because the one on the back seems to be the one that lets it know it's in 4wd. does anybody know which switch is which?? thanks.
