When change 2wd to 4wd and vice versa, the actuator moves the actuator shaft, and its position is monitored by the free wheel engage switch. If the actuator is moving and the shaft is free, then the next check is the free wheel engage switch. It either needs replacing or cleaning (bad connection).

Is there a Jimny 3 with 4WD transmission?
First of all, there are some rare “el cheapo” Jimnys 3 (mostly from early year 1998-2001) which have no 4WD transmission mechanics – they are RWD 2WD (real wheel drive two wheel drive) only. This article is not for them. All Jimnys 3 with 4WD transmission have the same overall transmission design:

It accomplishes this by means of a small electric motor bolted onto the transfer case that shifts a pin in place to lock the center transfer differential.
