2009 xtx, won't go out of 4x4

Hi all,

I got a 2009 xtx 700 and the 4x4 is stuck in 4x4 and won't come out. The actuator is buzzing to activate the 4x4 and buzzs to disengage just as it always has, but it is stuck in 4x4. The actuator is engaging the diff lock as it should, and disengaging as it should. Could the actutor be messed up inside to make it sound that its working but is really not or could it be a bent shift fork or just a dirty actuating shaft thats stuck in the case somewhere? I was wondering if this has happened to anyone else and what was the final result of the problem, before I start tearing into it! Thanks in advance!

Goon

How do you know it is having this problem? Or what brought this to your attention?

The display says its in 2 wheel drive, I know that its stuck in 4x4 because I took it to a muddy area and all 4 wheels are chewing when it's set in 2 wheel drive, definatly NOT and electical issue, something mechanical.

Makes sense if you are sure it is pulling. Maybe the actuator has a problem mechanically?

Actuator is buzzing to go into and to go out of 4x4, that doesn't mean something inside it is pooched, that is what I leaning towards. I haven't had it apart yet but I was wonder ing if it couls be something else, like a broken shift fork, I hope not!

If I was you I would rather it was the shift fork price wise. The shift fork can be bought online for 29 dollars. The actuator is 191 dollars.

I think i read on here somewhere the some of the prowlers do have a weak actuator. If that's the case it could be buzzing like its working but too weak to disengage the diff.
