    Hi there

    Thanks for your reply. because of the bad weather here recently, I have just managed to check everything. The tyres are all same type (Continental 255/55R 18). Pressures are OK and tyre wear is even on all of them. I have noticed this morning, that when I shift from 4H to 2H that the light stays on for about a minute then the shift engages (like some sort of electronic click). During the time that the light is on the shift can be moved up and down without using the clutch.

    Regards

    Stewart

    I am thinking that you have tension developing in the drive line between the front and rear axle. This is usually caused by one of two things.....either... different sized tires on the axles...or different pressures in the tires. All 4 tires should be same size AND same brand to ensure that the rates of rotation are identical. If not, one axle will turn at a different rate, and tension will develop in the drive line, causing the gears to stay engaged instead of being able to slide apart easily when trying to return to 2 WD mode. This is NOT the problem if you have a car equipped with a center differential. Bottom line, check air pressure in all tires, and then see if the tires are all the same size and brand. It is possible to mix brands, but they are frequently not the same diameter...even when they are the same size. Good luck. Let me know if this helps. You can sometimes adjust the tire diameter by raising or lowering pressures, but it is not a good solution, since it can wear the tires out prematurely, and cause traction and safety problems. Chip

OK,
It could be that the device that shifts your drive line in and out of 4WD...is sticking, binding or not deactivating for some reason. I am not sure what type of device is used on your vehicle. Jeep uses a sliding splined collar on a 2 piece axle that used to be activated by vacuum motor on the front axle. GM uses an electric plunger motor to achieve the same result. I suggest you find whatever device it is that engages your 4WD....and start there. Good luck. It is always fun to learn something new...and fix it. Chip

How to engage the 4 wheel drive on a 1991 jeep cherokee


You can "shift on the fly" at up to 45mph - just let off the gas and pull the shifter back to 4hi. DO NOT try going to 4lo while moving.

Another way is to stop, put it in neutral, and pull the shifter back to 4hi or 4lo.

This is vacuum activated - so if you can't get it to engage - the vacuum motor is failed - or you have a disconnected or rotted vacuum line.

Cherokees have the command - track. You'll see a lever next to the transmission shifter that has letters 2H, 4H, N, 4L on it.
You can shift from 2H (2wheel drive high range) to 4H (4wheel drive high range) at any legal speed.
If it's an automatic, I recommend just taking your feet off of both pedals, so there's not a lot of torque being passed thru the transfer case.
If it's a standard I recommend stepping on the clutch when you shift, but it's not necessary.
To go to Neutral just pull the shifter back one more position to the N position. To shift into 4L (4wheel drive lo range) you must be stopped.
I also recommend shifting the transmission into neutral when you do this. Push the shifter to the right, then pull it back.

Thanks!

How do I turn 4wd on?


    • 1 Start your Dodge truck's engine.
    • 2 Turn the electronic transfer case from "2WD" to "4WD Lock" to engage the high range 4WD, if the dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" to "4H." The electronic transfer case is located on the instrument panel and is marked with "2WD," "4WD Lock" and 4WD Low." The lever-equipped transfer case is located to the right of your leg and is marked with "2H," "4H" and "4L."
    • 3 Shift the transmission into "Neutral" while the vehicle is either stopped or rolling at 2 to 3 mph to begin engaging in the low range 4WD. Turn the electronic transfer case to "4WD Low," if the Dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" or "4H" to "4L."
    Tips & Warnings
    • Indicator lights will come on and alert you that your vehicle is in either the high or low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in the low range of 4WD drive if the transmission is in gear; you must shift to "Neutral" first.
    • Many Dodge trucks allow you to shift from 2-wheel drive to the high range of 4WD at up to 55 mph--consult your truck's manual to ensure that this is possible. Do not exceed 55 mph while engaged in the high range of 4WD. Do not exceed 25 mph while engaged in the low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in 4WD unless you are on slipper or rocky roads.

My 2002 GMC Envoy XL does not shift into 4 wheel drive. It is currently in 2H, when I turn the dial to 4H, the light does not flash or shift into 4H. This is the first time I tried shifting to 4H since...


Check to see if any of the other switch selections ( A4WD, 4LO) turn on a light, if not, the problem could be the switch itself or the TCCM (Transfer Case Control Module). If you get a flashing light condition for a switch selection, then the problem could be the actuator on the Transfer Case.

4runner 92 4WD problem


This might sound like a silly question but did you put the truck in neutral before you shifted into 4L ? Reason being transfer case damage can occure if it wasnt in neutral when you shifted into 4L.
