Welcome Message from 1A Auto

This new transfer case vacuum switch is a high quality, value priced, aftermarket replacement part.

If defective, your front axle disconnect vacuum motor will not activate to engage your front axle to 4WD from 2WD. This in turn, will cause your 4x4 shift light not to indicate 4WD, even though your transfer case is now in 4WD mode. With this situation, along with not getting proper traction, can cause damage to your transfer case!

Why search through junk yards hoping to find a used 4x4 vacuum switch when you can have it brand new! Replace that defective transfer case vacuum switch now before the bad weather hits!
