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.

When driving land rover it sometimes makes a grounding sound dont know where its coming from sometime it make sound when slowing down


Grounding sound? Do you mean GROWLING sound? Gears, gearbox, transfer case, bearings. These are suggested items, but can be big dollar issues. Is it stuck between 2WD and 4WD? Try the button- turn 4wd on, let it kick in, back up, go forward, then disengage the 4WD by shutting it off, backing up, then moving forward. If this doesn't help, get a LR mechanic on it.

Stuck in 4 wheel drive


The encoder motor that shifts the transfer case might be INOP. Try backing up slowly as you try to disengage 4wd. If still stuck you may need to replace that motor.

2001 subaru legacy is stuck on drive and wont disengage


Sounds like the cable or linkage has broken in side at the shifter assembly or out side at the transmission selector.Have some one move the shifter while you look under the hood at the transmission lever ( Do this with the car not running but the key on and the parking brake and foot brake applied) and see if it is moving . If it is not moving trace the cable back to inside the car to diagnose if it is the cable or the handle assembly . normally it is the cable or the clips the connect the cable at either end.

Four wheel wont disengage. had switch for 4x4 set to 2wd and the light switched to 4wd while driving down the road and the four wheel drive engaged. Tried to switch from 2wd to 4wd and back but didnt...


if it is a turn knob that puts it in 4x4.then a wire under the truck is touching the exhaust pipe making it do this. I had this happen to mine. It will be 2 wires so they more and likely came loose.

I have a 2008 Dodge Avenger. The gear shifter in the floor console will not release from park. I took the console apart and the only way I could ewlease it was to manually move a pink link. What do i need...


There is a small spring that is supposed to pull tention on that pink thing when you attempt to shift out of park. If you look closely, you will see where the tiny hook broke off that allowed the spring to fly off. I reattached a new spring (Lowes) that I cut down to size and by drilling a small hole in the pink thing to attach the spring. Both pink levers must release to allow you to shift out of park. I don't recomend buying a new assembly until they revise the tiny hooks that will not last. Don't put it all back together before verifying that your new spring has enough tention to pull back on the lever with the cable attached. Yep! I made that mistake.

Try putting your transmission in neutral and slowly shifting the 4wd selector to each position but you have to wait a few seconds between selsctions as it has to go through your vehicles computer, shifting to fast will cause your symptoms. I hope this helped you out. Roger

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

Transfer case wont engage


shift into 4wd and move truck a couple of feet.
if light is still off, park truck block the wheels set the park brake jack right front wheel and try to hand spin the wheel if wheel doesn't turn 4x4 is functioning properly but there is a wiring problem use an ohmmeter to check the 4x4 switch wiring fuse and bulb
if wheel turns freely the front axle or transfer case is not engaged
attempt to hand spin the front driveshft if the driveshaft will spin the transfer case is not engaged check the transfer case shift linkage, problem is in linkage or transfer case internals
if the driveshaft will not spin the transfer case is engaged properly
with trnsmission in neutral or park start engine measure vacuum on the two vac lines at front axle shift motor . one line should have approx 20" vacuum. other line should have none
if no vacuum measured look for vac leak or bad vac switch
if both lines have vac look for a bad vac swithc or ruptured cad actuator diaphragm
if one line has 20" +- VAC
move transfer case lever to 2wd measure vac again lines should have swapped vac signals
if no vac switch bad or 4wd shift likage needs adjusting
if yes vac motor bad or stuck or shift fork stuck
remove vac shift motor from the axle attach vac lines to shift motor engage disengage 4wd
does shift motor plunger move at least 1/2 inch
no shift motor bad
yes check axle shift fork and vac motor for binging

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.
