2003 Jeep Liberty making clicking sound only in 4wd

2003 Jeep Liberty Limited 4wd with SelecTrac makes clicking noise (not sure, but sounds like it's coming from front of vehicle) while in 4WD Part Time and 4WD Full Time (didn't try 4LO). No sounds while in 2WD. 190,000 miles. Transfer case just serviced for first time last weekend. Front and rear diffs never serviced. Almost never use 4WD.

SOURCE: Jeep Liberty Clicking Noise

Check the wheel bearings. Run the car and check where the noise is coming from. the wheel bearings make a gravelly, clicking noise if the bearing is bad. Lift the car and move the wheels up and down , to the sides etc. Listen or if the wheel moves , your bearing may be bad.

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.

I put a new starter in my Jeep liberty limited '05 3.7L. Still won't start. Just a clicking sound n my rear gate lock clicks. Battery reads 12.14v. Have no clue what's goin on. Need help.

The battery might be okay but the cables can be bad Make sure they are clean and tight on the battery. Make sure that there is no corrosion that you cannot see present under the insulation. One way to check is to remove the cable and hold the end and flex it near the connection and feel if there is an crunching noise. Make sure the other end of the connection is ok also.

I have a Jeep Liberty 2005, 60,000 miles on it.. Had to use part time 4 wheel drive to get out of sand last week.. went back into 2 wheel so I thought. Did the frontward/ backwards thing you need to

4L or 4H??????
is this Selectrac???? has 5 mode do say going from which mode to mode you did. and did so before or after leaving the sand.

drive it on sand,dirt gravel, ice, or grass
in 2wd and it will un wind
my guess is you wound it up. the drive line in PT 4wd.
did you read the operators guide carefully ?
this year is last year for free opr, guide. 2005
10 year range it is.

page 239?
tow 244
the Selectrac has FT 4wD. do you have that?
if not , you must get it to unwind.
do tell what drive line you have
what mode uses.
and when
and if the lamps changed correct before leaving sand.
or for sure, not in AWD

While trying to start my 2002 jeep liberty limited edition 2wd 3.7l engine I only get a click, after any number of clicks it finally starts.

It sounds like you need a new battery. If it's a 2002, then it's probably on it's second battery already and due for a new one. The clicking is the starter solenoid trying to engage the starter with the flywheel. If the battery can't supply enough "cold cranking amps" or "power", then it makes that clicking noise.

When in 4wd it makes a noise

Sounds like the transfer case is not fully engaging itself. you will have to check this out. This will only cause more damage if left alone. make sure the wires are connected and tight. if the wires are OK, the internals are likely to be malfunctioning. replacing or repairing the transfer case will fix this.

When in 4wd it makes a noise

Is the noise in the front or middle? If it's in the front, it is most probably a wheel hub or differential case bearing. First I would check (or replace) all the gear lube in the transfer case and both differentials.
If the sound is under the middle of the jeep, it's probably a front output bearing in the transfer case.
