Transfer Case Motor Guides

Transfer Case Motor Buyer's Guide

  • The switch between 2WD to 4WD modes can be done with just a touch of a button thanks to a small yet critical component—the transfer case motor.
  • This motor is located between the transmission and the driveshaft. It is a key component of the transfer case, which houses the mechanical components that transfer power from the transmission to the vehicle’s front and rear axles.
  • This part is only seen in vehicles with E.S.O.F. transfer cases. The transfer case motor eliminates the need for a lever that needs to be manually activated by the driver from inside the vehicle cabin. Instead, the motor engages the internal levers that activate the four-wheel-drive system automatically.
  • The transfer case motor is located underneath the vehicle. This makes it prone to damage caused by environmental factors, as well as road debris. Its electrical components may also wear out and malfunction over time.
  • Some of the signs of a bad transfer case shift motor: dashboard warning light/s are illuminated, drive mode switch is blinking or won’t light up, and difficulty/failure to switch between 2WD and 4WD operating modes.
  • The ability to switch between 2WD and 4WD is essential to the safe operation of your vehicle. A transfer case motor failure should be immediately checked and repaired by a trusted mechanic.
  • The cost of a transfer case motor varies between different makes and models. OE replacement transfer case motors can cost as low as $40. You may also find transfer case motors that cost over $700 in the higher range.

Part-time four-wheel-drive systems make it possible for the same vehicle to have excellent handling in the city, and at the same time, produce enough traction and power for driving off-road. This is possible because of the transfer case, which connects the front and rear axles together, allowing all four wheels to spin at the same speed while in 4WD mode.

In older vehicles, switching between operating modes meant slowing down or stopping the vehicle completely before pulling a lever on the vehicle floor. Today, the switch between 2WD to 4WD modes can be done with just a touch of a button thanks to a small yet critical component—the transfer case motor.

What is a transfer case motor?

A transfer case motor is a device that enables the driver to switch between 2WD to 4WD operating modes. It is located between the transmission and the driveshaft. This motor is a key component of the transfer case, which houses the mechanical components that transfer power from the transmission to the vehicle’s front and rear axles. The transfer case shift motor makes it possible to automatically engage each driving mode automatically from inside the cabin, with just a push of a button.

How does a transfer case motor work?

To understand how a transfer case works, it’s a good idea to review the two kinds of transfer cases based on shift type—Manual Shift On-the-Fly (M.S.O.F) and Electronic Shift On-the-Fly (E.S.O.F.)

Older vehicles equipped with an M.S.O.F. transfer case came with a lever on the vehicle floor, which allowed the driver to manually lock and unlock the front axle locking hubs to switch between 2WD and 4WD. The vehicle must either be moving at a low speed or be completely stopped and shifted to neutral before a change in operating modes can be selected.

The floor lever was replaced by dash-mounted switches or buttons in newer vehicle models with E.S.O.F. transfer cases. Unlike its predecessor, this type of transfer case has a transfer case motor that engages the internal levers to activate the four-wheel-drive system automatically. Some transfer cases are fully automatic, shifting in and out of 4WD mode as the system detects the need for increased traction.

Common transfer case shift motor problems

Without a functional transfer case motor, your vehicle will be unable to shift into 4-wheel-drive mode. This makes it incredibly important to replace a faulty transfer case shift motor checked by a professional and replaced as needed.

The transfer case motor is located underneath the vehicle. This makes it prone to damage caused by environmental factors, as well as road debris. Its electrical components may also wear out and malfunction over time. To give you a better idea about when you should have this part checked, here are some common transfer case motor symptoms to watch out for.

  • Dashboard warning light/s are illuminated (4WD service light, traction control, transfer case, or ABS warning light)
  • Drive mode switch is blinking or won’t light up
  • Difficulty/failure to switch between 2WD and 4WD operating modes

Should you drive with a bad transfer case shift motor?

The ability to switch between 2WD and 4WD is essential to the safe operation of your vehicle. A transfer case motor failure should be immediately checked and repaired by a trusted mechanic.

It can be dangerous to drive with a bad transfer case shift motor because you’ll be unable to shift in and out of 4WD. Failing to shift into 4WD mode will make it difficult for your vehicle to maintain traction while driving in snowy, sandy, rocky, or elevated terrain.

At the same time, a vehicle that’s stuck in 4WD mode can be unsafe to drive on dry pavement. Failing to switch back to 2WD puts extra strain on your front axles and differential gears, and may even cause you to lose full control of your vehicle because of slipping tires while making sharp turns.

How much does a transfer case motor cost?

The cost of a transfer case motor varies between different makes and models. If you’re working on a budget and are not particularly brand conscious, it may be a good idea to choose an OE replacement transfer case motor for your vehicle. OE replacement transfer case motors can cost as low as $40. You may also find transfer case motors that cost over $700 in the higher range.
