It doesnt need rebuilding. The shifter sheet that the gear shifter sits on is worn out or not even there which allows the shifter not to operate properly.

You can order a poly one from vendors like Lowrangeoffroad, Trail Tough, Petroworks, and some others.

There are four probable causes when the gear is stuck in one position, and they are precisely explained in this handy diagnostic article that I know will help narrow down the culprit of your difficulty:

SOURCE: 05 Durango transfer case will not engage, stuck in neutral

I had this happen to me today and found that it was a simple linkage problem.

If the 4WD-Neutral-2WD stick on the floor console moves freely try crawling under the vehical and make sure that the shift linkage is attached to the transmission. On mine I found a cotter pin had broken and the shift lever was not staying connected.

Make sure the shifter on the steering colum is in neutral and engine off when making these repairs.

Good luck

My 2005 Jeep Liberty 3.7 is stuck in 4Lo and only goes to neutral, not 4Hi or 2Hi. I checked the transfer case and the cable to the shift lever is broke. How do I get it back in 2Hi so I can fix the cable!...

why not replace the cable. first.? its bad fix it, replace it.
sure you need 2h, sure, but that must be done by hand.
jack up all 4 wheels, and move the lever to 2H,
by hand, its just a lever. but you need to get stress off axles (tires off ground) so you can shift by hand. at transfer case
and forget the silly lights until you fix cable and shifting.
best is key in pockets.
transmission in neutral
tires off ground,
the transfer case shifts more easy, like that, with just fingers on lever on box. (the shifter lever has , gain, that is, Archimedes, lever advantage, with that missing, by hand is harder, see?>)
mech, 101 , answer. that.

this care came with 3 transfer cases.
if you look at the box, rear, the tag there says what you have. look.
NV231, (part time)
241gen2, part time
and 242 (full time)
we cant guess that so answers will be vague.

step 2 in the fsm, states (cable removal)
2: raise vehicle.

for sure you can shift by hand, if the box is not seized
did you check the oil level yet, (gear lube) at the filler hole?
dip finger in, get finger wet? if not , hummmmmmmm

Could be either, a transmission problem or transfer case problem.
Someone will probably have to remove the transfer case to find out.
The torque converter, pump, valve body, or various parts in the transmission could have failed. The transfer case could be stuck between 2wd and 4wd or could have a broken gear.

Make sure when you are shifting your transfer case in and out of 4wd that your tranny is in the neutral position. This allows all the gears to slow down to synchronize. Try that and if doesn't work write another post and I will reply, Roger

How to shift into 4 LO in 2004 jeep grand cherokee

The correct procedure should be described in detail in your owner/operation manual.
For a 2004, 90 % sure that if it's a quadra trac you have to immobilize the vehicule, put your transmission shifter to neutral keeping foot on the brake obviously, engage the low on transfer case pulling the transfer case shifter, engage the transmission to drive
If it's a select track, normally you have to keep the vehicule moving very slowly (2 mph), move the transmission shifter to neutral, push the transfer case shifter to the right and pull it firmly. Once transfer case engaged, put back the transmission shifter to drive.
It could take few seconds to engage and disengage depending on the temperature and road condition. Do not try it on dry surface (preferable on mud, snow and wet surface). Drive at low speed because you will feel that it's very low geared.
By the way, follow the reverse process to reestablish normal mode

Hope it will help

I cant get the leaver to engage from 2 whhel drive


try leaving the main gearshift in neutral and shut the car off , then try and move the lever to four wheel drive. or maybe try to switch it while slowly backing up. most likely since its hardly ever used it just might be stuck from non use. if neither of those ideas fix it. call the dodge dealership and ask to talk to a mechanic in the service department, they might be able to help, call them first before you take it in$$$..

How do i engage 4wd in a 2003 jeep grand cherokee?

Jeep transfer cases are designed to be engaged when rolling from 3mph and up...low range should only be selected at low speed (around 3mph). Don't attempt to shift unless vehicle is moving...gears will not mesh properly. Try to find a manual to get the specifics of all variations of using the shift combinations available. (many times can be found in the gloveboxes of vehicles in scrapyards...just ask!

Transfer case wont work

might want to make shure the shifter linkage arm is in gear. if the linkage is bent at all it will hold the trans inbetween gears not allowing the motor to spin the drive shaft
