1983 - 1991 T-TRUCKS (4WD JIMMY/SONOMA)
Owners of some 1983-1991 T-trucks may comment about inappropriate front axle disengagement. This condition may be due to a corroded transfer case
vacuum actuator switch. To correct this condition a revised switch (P/N 15664811), constructed of noncorrosive stainless steel, should be installed.
The vacuum switch is located on the left upper side of the transfer case (Figure 1).
Raise the vehicle and support with suitable safety stands.
Remove the vacuum lines from the switch.
Remove the corroded switch from the transfer case.
Install a revised switch (P/N 15664811). Coat the threads with thread sealant.
Connect the vacuum lines.
