Bit of a long story but hoping to get some answers or advice.
I have a 2019 triton and have had nothing but trouble with the car engaging in 4wd. First time lead to me blocking an entrance on to a beach, signs were we weren’t moving, tyres not spinning and then noticed the lights flashing to say it hadn’t engaged. Took it to our local dealer and they said it was the switch and actuator, bash plate had impact damage therefor not a warranty job.. got a second opinion and was told just the actuator.. back to dealer and yep it’s just the actuator but still not warranty. Got it replaced. Happened again on the highway!!! Took it back, nope it’s the actuator, impact damage.. again. So replaced again and put a better bash plate to try and protect it better.
Has been great since until a road trip, no off road driving, on the highway a bunch of service lights flashed up, transmission service, 4wd service and bws service required.. it wasn’t due for a scheduled service and continued to flash until the car was turned off and back on but NO 4WD!!! Took it to the mechanic actuator is ok but yep no 4wd.. he has no idea and it’s closed now until the new year.. just tonight the car has been randomly setting in 4wd.. but setting I mean lights not flashing and it sets in either 2wd or 4wd. It does seem to take longer than usual to engage or at least the lights settle but it is engaging.. or saying it is.
Long drawn out story but would love some tips or advice. Regretting buying a triton but stuck with it for the next 4 years
