SOURCE: rear transfer case seal do i replace it myself?

Rear output shaft? you should only have one transfer case :) Ok so put the ebrake on. Put the truck in neutral. Matchmark the yoke to the tcase. remove the bolts that hold on the ujoint. This should drop the driveshaft from the tcase. Use an axle socket to remove the nut holding on the yoke. Tap the yoke off with a soft face mallet. pull out the felt ring. Using a seal puller remove the seal. tap in a new one very carefully. reinstall in reverse order. ensure you torque the nut to the required torque aling with the ujoint bolts.

SOURCE: jeep stuck in 4 wd and transfer case shifter moves about freely

OK, simple problem, and a quick fix...  (And I consider changing my own oil to be the extent of my automotive education.)  I had this happen today.  A little online research from the jeep community showed me the external cable that connects your 4WD knob with the arm on the transfer case is held on that arm with a plastic clip that is fond of disappearing.  
When the jeep cooled down, I crawled under, found the cable end hanging freely, and simply set it back on the arm.  With no clip it will pop off again, but it allowed me to shift back to 2WD and roll home.  I understand a zip tie will keep it in place until you get a 3/16 nut of some sort.  (Can't be more specific about the nut yet, I'm waiting for more info.)  
It was a relief to find out that I didn't need to have anything done with the transfer case, etc...  If you show the dealer the problem, I'm told they often want to replace the whole cable, as the clip comes as part of the whole.  Waste of time and $$$, and I canceled the appointment with the dealership when I learned the simplicity of 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.

SOURCE: Key won't turn in 2002 Jeep Liberty, can't start.

put the key in the ignition and tap the key farther into the cylinder and turn. should work. seems like a chrysler problem! a handy tow truck driver showed me this solution last night. you can have the cylinder replaced if this keeps happening or just keep a handy-dandy whacking object in your center console for just such an occassion!

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

Transfer Case Shift Control Switch Indicator Flashes and Returns to Original Mode.
Circuit Description
This symptom usually occurs when a shift into or out of 4LOW will not occur. When the transfer case control module (TCCM) receives a request to shift into or out of 4LOW, the TCCM must see the following parameters before the shift routine can start:
The vehicle speed must be below 3 MPH.

The transmission must be in neutral.

If the TCCM does not see these conditions the shift control switch indicator lamp will flash for approximately 5 seconds and then return to the original gear.
Test Description
The numbers below refer to the step numbers on the diagnostic table.

  1. This step tests the operation of the transfer case shift control switch to help determine if the system is operating properly.

  2. This step determines if the vehicle speed sensor reading is correct.

  3. This step determines if the park switch reading is correct.

Switch Indicator Lamp Flashes and Returns to Original Mode





Schematic Reference: Transfer Case Control Schematics


Important: The transfer case shift control module is not a class 2 device, and therefore a scan tool can not be utilized on this transfer case.

Go to
Testing for Intermittent Conditions and Poor Connections
Go to Step 3

Is the vehicle speed within the specified range?
0 km/h (0 mph)
Go to Step 4
Go to
Powertrain On Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check for the 4.3L engine


  1. Put the transmission in neutral.
  2. Observe the current state of the transmission on the scan tool in the transmission control Data 2 List.

Does the scan tool indicate the transmission is in Neutral?
Go to Step 5
Go to
Powertrain On Board Diagnostic (OBD) System Check for the 4.3L engine


Replace the transfer case shift control module. Refer to Transfer Case Shift Control Module Replacement .

Did you complete the replacement?
Go to Step 6

Transfer case stuck in neutral

take the 4 wheel drive shifter out, and follow it down, open up ur transfer case and you can will see your shifterforks, order a shifter sheet bushing for around $20 and install it. you can do all this without taking the transfercase off of the sami and it should take around 30 minutes to tear it down, put in the bushing, and put it all back together.if you dont understand that, heres a link

I was driving my 99 Grand Cherokee limited in 4Lo then it just popped out of 4Lo into neutral and will not re engage! When i put it into 4Lo it just revs and grinds when i step on the gas and truck wont...

Try putting the truck into reverse before going into neutral, then put it into 4-lo. Sounds like the transfer case linkage might need to be adjusted, nothing major. I've owned NUMEROUS Jeeps, and every one with an auto tranny was a PITA to get into 4-lo. And if it isn't engaged completely, it will pop out every time.

The neutral tow kit is nothing more than a LED to indicate that the transfer case is in neutral. I installed my own LED and had the dealership download the program. This is for 2001 - 2005. The tow indicator light plugs into the small green connector under the steering wheel. I cut the connector off and installed straight line wire connectors and hooked it up to the LED. I had the dealer confirm that following the sequence of steps the transfer case was in neutral. Make sure the vehicle is secured (won't roll away)
1. have the engine running
2. put the shift level into neutral
3. turn the key back one position (off but not locked)
4. indicator light wil come on and then turn off
5. press the brake and the 4X4 auto button for about 5 seconds
6. the indicator light will flash 4 times and then stay on
7. release the brake and the 4X4 button
8. transfer case is in neutral
