Default Four wheel drive not working

Please help! I can shift into 4 wheel, it lights up on my dash, but clearly is not going in, as I couldn't go anywhere in the snow last weekend. I've had one vacuum hose fixed last winter. It was working fine last year, but now it's not. Anyone have any ideas?

I've been reading everything posted and I think I've found my answer....now, can my husband do this on his own, or should I take it to a mechanic?

If you guessed it was the hubs then you can do it, make your husband make dinner while you change out the old hubs for a nice set of WARN manuals, you will be finished in about 45 minutes, long before him!

Ha ha, great idea, but I don't have a manual....or a clue....Ya, I think we'll need to switch out the hubs. Thank you fellow Canadian...You seem to know your stuff, are you a mechanic for Kia?

Lol! No I'm not a mechanic, just 'been there, done that'!

Go to this thread, it's on another fourm but deals with changing the hubs and other 4x4 shifting issues etc! 4x4Wire.com's TrailTalk Forums: READ FIRST IF YOUR 4WD DOES NOT WORK

also go here for a free online KIA manual, you just have to sign up, it's the manual the KIA techs log on to! Did I mention it's FREE no strings attached! Kia Global Information System (KGIS)
