This is actually a very easy fix.
The switch is on the transfer case, you'll see wires or small harness going to it.
It should be the only electrical switch on the transfer case.
It unscrews by using a socket or wrench.
clean it and replace

Remove switch and spray it with contact cleaner, insure the switch is operational and 4wd engages, it may be dirty, when completed disconnect battery for 15 min and see if message comes up again.

I got 2005 grand Cherokee 5.7 hemi I did the service 4wd I just need to know is there a way to reset the worning that always on the screen (even when I'll change it to somthing else it come back).


if the message "service 4wd" is appearing than there is a problem with the four wheel drive system. It does not mean the four wheel drive needs to be serviced (fluids changed, etc.).

Did you make any repairs to the four wheel drive system?

No display on service center display


If it is working it will tell you if any doors, hatches are open, it tells you when your next service is due, If you are in 4WD or not. On the all time 4wd it tells you if you are in "Lo" . Mostly shows date and time. Check your grounds and power source fuses. It may need replaced. Also if something is wrong it makes a really annoying sound and it desplays a message. " Servire 4WD Switch" for exaple. I hope that helps . I just bought mine and just trying to fix it up for hunting. good luck Alex
