Easy fix! Remove boot, take out four screws, shifter pops up, replace bushing! Keep it in neutral before starting.

SOURCE: isuzu rodeo sport 4wd, stuck in 4wd

Don't know if this will help with your exact problem, but I can share with you how I have "fixed" this.

If the 4WD indicator is flashing, then it means the 4WD select switch is working but the 4wd "clutch" hasn't released. Backing the vehicle up slowly, or sometimes just switching into reverse with the 4WD switch in the 2WD position is usually enough to release the 4WD and the 4WD indicator should go off. It after all this, the indicator still does not go off, it could be some issue with the electric 4WD clutch not releasing.
You should be able to tell if the 4WD drive is still engaged by driving slowly in a circle. On drive pavement, the front wheels will "hop" around. Don't do this too fast or too often on drive pavement, since the part time 4WD was not meant for this. The front wheels have to be able to slip in relation to each other, when in 4WD.

Hope this helps and wish you well in your troubleshooting.

SOURCE: suzuki sj 410 transfer box jammed

The thing to do to get it unjammed now is to remove the transfer shifter biushing and then replace it.  Remove the cover, then the boot, then depress and rotate the retaining ring (can be done with needle nose pliers inserted nose-down).  Then pull out the black rubber ring, wipe it off, then reinstall everything.  Get the transfer case into some gear and get back home.  When you get back home buy a new transfer case bushing from somebody like Suzuki John on Ebay.  The new bushing will fix the problem.

SOURCE: 2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd

I questioned the dealer about my 2005 because mine was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.

Suzuki grand vitara 2003 4wd light keeps coming on and off while driving in 2wd and makes clunking noise


ok its not fibbing, the 4wd is engaging while it should not.

the answer is in the book. the FSM
and at alldata dot com.
as a rule with suz, cars, is that early years.
the light is before the fact and later years after the fact.
but dont matter here, due to its in 4wd.
and will windup on pavement (are you on that or dirt.?)
do not drive a car with stuck 4wd (part time 4wd is not AWD)
its a danger to you and all others on the road.

On my GV. it works like this, and 04, , I have all the books on muy car, so i can DIY . at any time.
fixing cars is complex an wiring blind is dangerous to you and the drive line.

volume1 chapter 3B3.
the ECU sees 4wd and glows the light .
the ECU gets this fact from the 4wd small air pump.
this year, uses a front axle module
this model is an air pump
this #2 module has and air presure switch
so bingo lamp on means the air pump is running. (maybe)

so either that air switch is fibbing, its not you feel 4wd engaged.
or the 4wd command switch is stuck closed. bingo.
this switch closes (or breaks) and tells ECU to engage
4wd, the ECU then starts the air pump then the pump runs
and the air pressure acutaly (vac actuators) move the front
axle to 4wd axle lock mode.

that is the whole deal.
a volt meter at the switch, teminal to ground read
black-org wire
12v ,not 4wd.
0v , engage 4wd, (move the lever key on, and see it toggle.
0v, 12v, 0v ,12v, the sure sign of a good switch.

My land rover discovery is stuck in 4 wheel drive, what can cause this?


The discovery is as previously mentioned permanent four wheel drive.However the difflock/range lever in most suffers from lack of use and siezes all i had to do when i bought mine was plenty of WD40 and patience as i don't think it had been in low range or difflock from the day it was built.don't try to force it just spray it and let it soak then try keep doing this and it should free up if not it may be the selector grubscrew has worked loose just threadlock it and screw it back in.

91 trooper stuck in neutral


possible range selection detent switch not working causing to get stuck some times in one range only and wont shift to other range 4wd light in dash just keeps flashing for about 10 seconds then goes to previous state this then can jam up 2wd 4wd lever that you then cannot move.
there are 3 switches 2 on trans/transferr case, 1 on front LH diff axle tube actuator (shift on fly). can cause damge to the electric actuator then on transferr case.
suggest you get a dealer to look at or some one that knows this system. is also vaccum operated on front diff shift on fly unit and there were 2 different systems fitted to these vehicles push button 4wd on dash and lever next to gear lever which i take is yours

Stuck in 4wd


Apparently, their is an electrically controlled, vaccuum servo located below the spare donut tire under the hood which is malfunctioning. It is connected to a lever on the side of transmission, by a cable. A temporary fix is to get the lever to move forward by hand. Jack up the car on the passenger side. Between the two transmission cross members, above the exaust pipe behind the catylictic converter, you will see the lever connected to the cable. Push lever forward towards motor to disengage rear wheels. This will allow you to travel on a hard road until you can get to a mechanic.
