If you have a gear stick to do the changing check underneath for mud build-up or a stick or stones preventing changing. If you have electric buttons the changing is done by a solenoid activated unit. Most are vacuum operated so check for power supply to unit or a blockage in the vacuum line

SOURCE: 4x4 is stuck in low range

The motor is what moves it. If you disconnect that, it will still be in low range. odds are that it is the motor, but removing it will not solve your problems. I would take it off, try to shift and then see if it moves. if not, replace it. if it does, its your transfer case.

SOURCE: Manual Transmission seems to be stuck in low

The transfer case is stuck in the low range. If manual shift try shifting from low to high several times to see if free up. If electronic, check all fuses and make sure you hear transfer case change range. Do this by shifting with key on engine off. If no change refer to qualified transmission mechanic.

Stuck in 4x4 low switch on dash 1998


It is your 4 x 4 electronic shifter at fault. Located on your transfer case it is mostly black/brown plastic electronic switch that engages and disengages your transfer case from low, high 4 x 4 or 2 wheel drive.
Check connections for electric continuity and replace it if there is no power...

Forks are bent and it is stuck in 4 wheel drive


forks, you looked inside the transfer case>?
my guess is your forks statement is pure guessing.
the cause can only be 3 things.
1: operator error (RTM)
2: bad shifter mechanism. (from hand to dog rings
3: bad transfer case.

op error, not using clutch to disengage.
moving
or not on flat ground and there is down hill force locking the dogs
in the box.
so are you in main box (A/T or m/T ) and you depress the
clutch (if in fact you have one) and it will not shift from 4wd.
is it stuck in high range or low? 4L or 4H
if the linkage is ok and all above
then the internal shifter box, is misaligned,
a: fork rails jammed.
b: forks bad,
d:; forks heat welded to dog rings (gross overheated)
e: bad splines on dog rings.
f: ok, you get the point, bad xfr case.

part 26 and 28 are what the forks move, i call the dog rings.
if they are siezed , its locked.
dogs are side teeth on the rings that lock in gears using said dogs.
see large red arrow H/L pointing to 1 dog set.

1996 ford explorer 4wheel drive will not engage into the hubs need to know how it works


make sure your 4WD switch is working.and fuse is okay.because your 4WD is control by 4 electric shift motors in which drive a rotary cam which moves the mode fork and range fork inside the transfer case to select between 2WD HIGH A4WD - 4WD HIGH AND 4WD LOW RANGE.a shift motor sensing plate on the shift motor monitors the range in which the transfer case is operating a transmission range sensor monitors the gear position of the transmission.which must be in neutral to shift into low.a pair of solenoids one for 2WD one for 4WD.mounted on the upper right firewall route vacuum to the vacuum motor which engages and disengages the center axle disconnect collar in the front axle assembly.a 4 x 4 shift motor relay module contains two GEM controlled relays which shift the transfer case shift motor between 2WD and 4WD modes.a solid state clutch relay activates the A4WDclutch inside the transfer case.

2001 Dodge Durango stuck in 4 wheel-Low. Won't switch back to 2WD


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.
