The transfer case is no longer a simple device controlled with a single manual stick shifter.Just like the engine and trans,fuel system,exhaust system,electrical system...etc etc....It is a complex electrical world/circuit all unto itself.There are approximately 2 sensors,two switches,and an electric MOTOR and a computer,that all work in unison to provide the luxuries of "shift on the fly" transfer case abilities.As a complex electrical system,it must be diagnosed as such.Basic steps in diagnosing a problem follows in order of sequence....1:pull Diagnostic Trouble Codes (DTC)'s from the transfer case system 2:For every dtc is a diagnostic route to verify all the electrical sensors and controls and COMMANDS are in place anf functioning. 3: If all external electrical componenets are tested and verified functioning,the last diagnosis is 4: Internal transfer case failure.

98 Grand Cherokee Loredo 4X4: When turning the wheel all the way right the back right tire seem to freeze up then lunge grabbing traction. The same happens when the wheel is turned all the way left. ...

Is this a manual 4 wheel drive system that can be shifted into 2 wheel drive? These type of systems should be in 2 wheel drive for tight turns. The drive train locks the differentials to make it 4 wheel drive and with the 4x4 engaged it creates this lunge grabbing effect.

4 wheel drive quit at some time didn't know it...drives fine only rear wheels pulling..could it be electrical ??

I hava a 1999 Grand cherokee loredo V8 with full time 4wheel drive. when the rear tires slip I am hearing a poping noise in the front end when the 4wheel drive engages. I was told by one person that it could be the chain in the transfer case slipping but I was told by a jeep salesman that this year jeep did not have a chain. Could this be the CV joints in the front axels?

My 2001 Jeep grand cherokee 4x4 i dont think is working right, whe i put it into 4x4 it goes fine, but when i take it out of 4x4 it takes acouple mile to kick back into 4x2, is this normal

it could be that the change mechanism is sticking. this does not seem normal.
try doing the change from 4x4 to 4x2 while stationary it should switch straight away. if not there is a problem
suspect transmission oil may be low or need replacement.

'93 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 4x4 switch warning

this switch does not switch the vehicle from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Grand cherokee have a manual shifter for that. The 4x4 switch is on top of the transfer case and tells the driver information display what 4 wheel drive mode the Jeep is in. ex..if you have selectrac, in 2 wheel the rear wheels on the display will light up, in 4 wheel all 4 wheels will light up, in 4 wheel low it will have the word low lit up in yellow. This is the only purpose for this switch and a bad one will not affect the functioning of the 4 wheel drive. Check out and a new one can be purchased for about 35 dollars. If you call the dealership and ask for a 4 wheel drive switch, they will have no clue what you are talking about. The actual name is " 4WD indicator light switch"
