    1999 JEEP CHEROKEE AUTOMATIC is stuck in 4wd. Despite using manual lever to shift back to 2wd, the vehicle remains stuck in 4wd. This happened once before, 18 months ago. Then one day, in a carpark, there was a god-almighty clunk and I was back in 2wd. Any tips? Thanx in advance for any help.

Ok first u want to get a chrysler dealer not gm and second the main shaft in the transfer case may have been torqued and damaged, if this is the case then you are looking at a full rebuild of the internal main shaft, another consideration is that the only time the case changes power to rear wheels is when u shift into low gear other wise only one component moves to engage the chain for the front axle the other moving component changes the gear ratio for the whole transfer case,plus the shift linkage maybe stretched and need adjusted.

Everything on that transfer case is electronically monitored,actuated and controlled.There is a General Motors TSB (Technical Service Bulletin) about a particular switch on the transfer case that over time,accidentally engages the front differential at highway speeds and shreds the front diff.You might want to call your local GM dealer with the vehicle VIN number and have them confirm or deny any TSB's that might apply to your vehicle.Besides that,verify with all 4 wheels off the ground if the front diff is engaging when in 4 wheel low range.Scan the vehicle for diagnostic trouble codes,as the transfer case is controlled by a computer.If the 4WD is malfunctioning,any codes will lead you into the problem area.Many times,the transfer case controller is involved with the Body Control Module (BCM),and pulling codes from the Powertrain Control Module (PCM) will not put you in touch with the transfer case controller.On some Fords,the BCM controls the transfer case and also monitors things like the door open/closed sensors.If there is a malfunctioning door sensor,the BCM will inhibit 4WD operation electronically,so look in all areas.Good luck

4 wheel drive won't engage


Which do you have ?
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
The NV236 transfer case is an automatic transfer case with three drive ranges. Shifting from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive is done automatically when the transfer case shift control module receives wheel rotating slip information from the speed sensors. The transfer case shift control module then engages the transfer case motor/encoder to position the transfer case from rear to four wheel drive. When the transfer case shift control module receives information that the wheel rotation is the same on both axles, the transfer case shift control module sends position information to the motor/encoder to put the transfer case back into rear wheel drive. The three drive ranges are 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO. The 2HI position is for normal driving with the rear wheels pushing the vehicle. The 4HI, position is for driving through sand, snow, mud, gravel, or heavy rain at normal or slightly below normal speeds. The 4HI engages the front axle to allow for four wheel drive. The front axle is pulling the vehicle, and the rear axle is pushing the vehicle. The 4LO range is used for off road driving, heavy snow, deep mud, or shallow fording. The 4LO is similar to the 4HI except that the gearing in the transfer case is set for low speed and high torque. The NV236 is manufactured at Syracuse New York by New Venture Gear a division of New Process Gear for General Motors.

I have a 1995 Silverado 4x4. The 4WD will not engage. Someone told me it may be the actuator for the transfer case. When I try to shift into 4hi, nothing happens. When I try to shift into 4lo, it grinds...


I HAD A BLAZER WITH THE SAME SYMPTOMS REPLACED THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR AND SOLVED PROBLEM. TRANSFER CASE MOTOR SHIFTS FROM HIGH TO LOW GEAR IN THE TRANSFER CASE AND TELLS THE FRONT ACTUATORS TO INGAGE FRONT HUBS . MOTOR WON'T MOVE TO 4 HIGH AND GRINDS WHEN TRYING TO MOVE TO 4 LOW, TRANSFER CASE MOTOR FAILING . CHECK VACUUM LINES AND ACTUATORS ON FRONT DIFF THEY FAIL, CAN CHANGE TO CABLE ENGAGEMENT INSTEAD OF FAILURE PRONE VACUUM ACTUATORS.

4lo works fine 4hi won't engage


Same problem here. Just replaced the vacuum actuator and it still does not work. Could not see any damage to the tubes either. However after I manually move the vacuum actuator I can get it to engage and disengage up to several times but it never lasts
