Yes, it's normal. Make sure you only engage it in 4x4 for tight turns if u are driving in snow, off road, ice, etc. The wheels are trying to turn the same revolutions, and of course the wheels on the inside of the turn have a much shorter distance to rotate than the wheels on the outside, that's why u feel the 'fighting something' u describe. On snow ice sand, there is slippage of the tires possible, on dry pavement there isn't, so u can damage the system (blow it) if u use 4x4 on dry pavement, because something has to 'give', and if it's not the tires slipping on the ice, sand, snow, it might be your system that gives, and that ain't cheap! So only use 4 Lock when necessary.

The problem may be related to technical service bulletin TSB 03-001-07 which involves replacing the front axle actuator disconnect and a software update. You should be able to Google the TSB and look at the build date listed in the bulletin to determine if it applies to your vehicle.

I am shocked that the dealer cant fix it, even after warranty. But it sounds like a switch/sensor on the transfer case, or the 4x4 is engaged, and the computer hasnt relayed it to your dash. Can you feel the 4x4 engage? You should be able to.

Hello there:
what i would suggest is to remove all of the mats that you can and stasrt the vehical and turn on the heater and let it run for a while and see if there is any water leaking from there if no water is noticed get a water hose and run water all around the windshield and than inspect from the inside to see fi there is any water coming in anywhere and if ther is than you will need a new windshield gasket there may also be a leak between the cab and the firewall so check to see if thereis any plugs that are missing or any place that hoses are going thru the firewall to see if they have a gap in them allowing water to leak in and cracks in the cab floor will get water in there too ok?
so please try these i hope that this has been very helpfull for you
best regards michael

remove the unit and check your wiring harness dodge uses a two part factory harness if the plug with all the speaker outputs came undone it would still turn on and function normal but you'd have no sound.
