Hi Stuart. I wouldn't have thought that a flat battery would have had any effect on your 4wd. Did you depress the clutch before switching from 4low to any other position? Also try reversing in 4low, then depress the clutch and switch to another position.
Let us know how you get on.

Best regards
Mick

I ve tried reversing, but no joy, when u initally start it the 4 wheel logo comes up, as if its trying to engage, but theres no noise now, am gonna have a wee check of the fuses, just incase ins blew one. i didnt depress the cluch, as i said, it had been left in low.

According to the manual at least you need to be in neutral *and* depress the clutch to go into or come out of 4Lo. May wanna give it a try.

Stuart, you still need to depress the clutch whether, going into or coming out of 4low!

Hey, got it sorted, checked the fuses, and they were all ok, so decided to pull out the electric selector, only 2 12mm headed bolts, just pops out, just lose a drip of oil. Its just a shaft with a slot in it, to which the selector fits into. I just put a scerwdriver into the slot, and turned it anti-clock wise till you could hear it click, first into H4 then into H2. Started the beast up an in was in H2, then listened for the selector, and that was working fine, popped in back in then went driftin in H2, job done. think it was just one of those things that happens now and then, parked in low 4, bit of weight on it, damp conditions, and a glitch wae the computer/switches/selector, and it was jammed between 2 modes, thanks for your help anyway.

cheers stuart

well done mate, this is a bit of a problem when 4x4 isnt used for many months of the year, then when you need it its seized!
Try to get into the habit once a month of putting it in 4wd (on a straight road at low speed), do a quarter mile then back into 2wd, should keep it all free for next season
