Question about 2002 Dodge Durango
You will need to let the durango sit in the nuetral position without moving, then turn the knob from 2WD to 4WD. if that doesnt work, try putting the durango in reverse and then back to drive a couple times. you may have some mud/dirt/oil caked up under there interfering with the 4WD moving parts.

I would check the fuse panel(s) for possable fuse issue.
If fuses related to the 4 wheel drive is not pop close the panel(s) up.
I would than hope into the truck and perform the 3 quick on/off with the key(do not start truck!! and let dash units turn on before turning back off) to see if there might be a code the comes up. If so, call or look on-line for your codes to describe what the issue is or could be.
If the truck does not show codes I would move on to perform this step:
- Start the truck
- Put foot on your break
- Take truck out of "OD" Overdrive
- Place the truck into "N"
- Switch the quick switch into 4H and let it sit for a few seconds and drop you truck into "D" with the "OD" off. If the light is flashing try to drop the truck into L1 with the "OD" off and wait a few seconds to see what this does. If the light on the 4H is still flashing take the gearshifter back to "N" and wait a few more seconds. If the 4H does not stop flashing try all of these steps for 4L. (What we are doing is seeing whether or not the switch is bad or the quick switch unit that allows the 4 wheel to kick in is bad.
- If the lights keeps flashing I would go to a repair shop that you would trust to assist in this issus.
Just as a FYI, I do have a 02 Durango and the 4H switches great it is the 4L that some times takes a while to switch. Another thing to remember that if you use your 4 wheel drive to go mudding in all the time you my have burned out the unit the it takes to perform this task of engaging the 4 wheel drive all together.
I hope this helps out with your issue and remember to perform the simple steps 1st before spending big money on repairs!

Many times this type of issue is caused by the motor that changes the transfer from 2 to 4 wheel drive, they get stuck, another issue is dirty fluid, have you had the transfwer case serviced?

You need to check the cv joints in the front end or the u joints in the front drive shaft.If none of the above then the problem is internal in the front diff.

You could also try your coolant sensor it to the left of you thermostat its very small. Cost is about $10-$15 if you do it your self. Good Luck.

Just to clarify, the "transmission" is not stuck in 4-Lo. It is the "transfer case" that is attached to the transmission that actually engages the 4-Hi and 4-Lo modes. To properly shift your vehicle into 4-Lo, you know that you have to shift the transmission into neutral and slow down to less than 5 mph. Once your vehicle slows down to this range, your can switch your transfer case into 4-Lo mode. Due to the inner workings of the transfer case, the actual shift into 4-Lo may take a few seconds to complete. This is normal and does not signify that there is an issue. All transfer cases that have 4-Lo mode will act this way regardless of the make or model. To make a long story short, to shift out of 4-Lo you must follow the same steps that you took to shift into 4-Lo, just in reverse order. Switch the transfer case to 4-Lo mode if it isn't already there. Slow down to less than 5 mph (your vehicle must be moving, though). Then, shift your car into 4-Hi or 2WD. Give your vehicle several seconds to complete the shift. The transfer case indicator light will flash until it is complete. When it does complete the shift into the new gear mode, you will most likely hear a "clunk" (the range sleeve inside the transfer case disengages from its mating spline) from under your car. Again, any transfer case with 4-Lo (regardless of make or model) will exhibit this same noise. This should help you get out of 4-Lo. It is good practice to shift your car into and out of 4-Lo at least a few times each year to keep all of the splines free of corrosion and build-up. Based on the age of your vehicle, your transfer case may also need a complete flush and some new transmission fluid. Hope this helps.
