Contactor, Suzuki Santana Samurai 4WD
Model with 2 flat thimbles.
A 4WD contactor, or neutral switch, is an electrical piece, assembled on the vehicle’s tranfer case. This piece is responsible for the « switched to 4WD » indicator on your Suzuki or Santana Samurai’s dashboard.
You can notice a contactor malfunction :
- if the indicator is not on while you’re on the 4WD position.
- or if the indicator is on when you’re on the 2WD position.
A contactor malfunction can also be linked to an impermeability problem of the transfer case.
