Four low is almost never used. I use it on very steep rocky or muddy trails in the woods or to pull someone out of mud or a ditch. Though some will shift standing still it is best do do this while rolling. Four high can be shifted at low speeds of 2 to about 35mph (higher also but not really good idea) Low can only be shifted between 2 to 10mph. If you find yourself stuck and unable to shift because you aren't rolling you can also turn the engine off, engage the transfer case and re-start. That avoids having the gears clashing together. Best rule is if it begins to grind, don't force it.
Hey there, The driver info center in the 93 grand cherokee's is notorious for this message. This switch is on the transfer case and its only purpose is to tell that display what 4 wheel drive mode you are in (eg. 2 wheel, 4 wheel high, 4 wheel low, etc.) This can mean the switch bad but is USUALLY cause by a short in the display module itself. This will not affect anything on your Jeep. It is merely for driver information only. This is a very common problem and if you have a 93 in which the display is working at all your are lucky. They are very bad about going completely out over time.
You can shift on the fly...as you are moving....into 4WD at speeds up to 40 MPH but simply grabing the 4WD selector and moving into the 4WD high gear. Low gear selection should be done at a stand still, with transmission in neutral position before proceeding in fwd. The low position is a "granny gear" that is for extreme situations where high 4WD will not suffice or get you out of a stuck situation.
aslong as you dont have locking hubs you can shift into 4 wheel high if you need 4whl low youwill need to stop and put into neuteral first and the same thing to take it out of 4whl low .otherwise you can shift on the fly or if you prefer driving hope this helps you out
