Re: 00 sonomia 4x4 broken in the the front

If the front driveshaft is engaged and only the left is connected, the differential gears will allow it to spin freely, just like a rear axle without a locker when one wheel is off the ground. That is how and why the system works.

The pin is item 17 in the breakdown in the parts diagram in your link.

The actuator cable and cable housing can be removed to inspect the pin and get a peek at the connector spline.
