    I have 2008 Ford F-250 diesel with the turn knob 4x4, It won't do anything when you turn the knob. It happened once before and the dealer replaced a fuse or something like that. I checked the fuses by under the hood and it seems fine. Does anyone know what fuse number controls the electronic 4x4 and traction control off? It has the regular auto fuses plus these big square ones. Let me know what you think thanks.

    Do you still have hubs that you need to lock first?

    Could be a vacuum leak or a bad shift motor.
    Try locking the hubs manually and see what happens.

    you still have to lock the hubs, the problem is none of the lights on the dash come on, the knob does nothing. its a fuse issue

    Could be the electric shift motor.
