Hi all.  I'm new to this and have a Suzuki Vitara on a N plate 1.6 petrol.  When I collected the vehicle it was in 4x4 and I noticed the front tyres scuffed and it was a job to turn corners - which is what I'd expect.

the other night I got completely stuck and had to be towed out and I think this is down to the front wheels not doing anything.  If I turn with 4x4 engaged now it turns as tightly as in two wheel drive, which suggests to me its stopped but working - my question therefore is what would cause this simple system to stop supplying power to the front wheels?

Both 4x4h and 4x4l engage smoothly and the light comes on the dash.  the free wheeling hubs are locked, although there were set to free for a short road trip when i picked it up.  the 4x4 system has worked after I changed them back to lock.

Any suggestions of what to check would be great and much appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

Sam.
