94 Ford Explorer autamatic lockouts not locking but axles are turnig?
If your front axles are turning then that eliminates the T-case and front differential as the problem. You probably just need new hubs. If you go off roading a lot, consider replacing the automatic hubs with manual hubs. These require you to manually lock each hub to engage the axle. I'm a big fan of Warn locking hubs. If you are just an occasional off-roader or you never really use 4 wheel drive, have new automatic hubs put in. I'm willing to bet your auto hubs are just worn out. It's not a hard job to do by yourself and you can save some money. It's just five or six Torx head screws and then you pop out a retainer clip and the hub should slip out. Check out the link for a little more detail on the advantages/disadvantages of manual and automatic hubs.
