Borg Warner Transfer Case

Need Help! My son just bought a van that has a owner/mechanic installed Ujoint conversion but they installed an electronic shift Borg Warner 4406 transfer case. The problem is they never finished the conversion by not installing the electronic shift portion. The last owner would go under and turn the triangle shift shaft with pliers to engage. They make a manual shift knob called the Shiftster but you still have to crawl under to engage. I have talked to Chris @ Ujoint and he was really helpful but says he does not install the electric shift transfer cases. Does anyone know if there is a kit that has the switch, wire harness and diagram to install? Thanks everyone!

I know Agile Offroad installs electric transfer case, they might be able to point you in the right direction? Where do you usually find this transfer case, can't you grab a switch and harness from the wrecker? And worse case aren't those simply on/off power activated? Can't see why some wire, a relay and a 2 way switch couldn't work out as a diy...

Good luck
David

I don't think it would be as easy as a 2 way switch. The motor that operates the shifter has 3 positions, 2 high, 4 high and 4 low. Also there is what I have read a brake lockout for the 4 low.

True enough and you'd need more than one relay. Would your son consider using it as a manual shift? I looked but so far didn't find any diagrams for the electric one.

I am sure MG Metalworks would know how to get this problem solved and if not he could point you in the right direction...

If he can't, I know he has an NV271 for sale.

He would do manual but on this specific transfer case the shift mechanism is in back where the acutator motor is mounted. There is no other linkage hook ups like others next to the output to the front driveline.

Many of the 4x4 van conversations do this as an option. So it may be worth phoning them up and see if they will sell you a kit. Also get the wiring diagram from a vehicle that has this transfer case, it should be quite easy to work out.
