If it is a stick transfer "case" it could be the actuator not working right.

but if it is electronic it could be a computer deal as you stated it.

How to deactivate 4 wheel drive on jeep cherokee crd 2012 model


this is USA forum.
we dont have that car here.
nor your book on it.
is this part time 4wd, and on dry pavement/
if yes, move car to dirt, 1 tire must be on ice, dirt ,grass ?
and now you can exit 4wd, due to dive line wind up.

the book on my rice jeep , says jack up one tire.(funny to read)
day 1, our cars were opted with (part time)
The Command-Trac transfer case has four positions: 2-HI, 4-HI, Neutral, and 4-LO.
or
Day 1, opted
The Selec-Trac transfer case has five positions: 2-HI, 4-HI Part-Time, 4-HI Full-Time, Neutral, and 4-LO.

they are not the same system at all.

only you know what you shifter reads, no photos by you to help
did you read your operators manual first.
it tells you how to use the box.

four wheel drive mode tells me zero.
use the correct names, seen above, are you in 4-HI
on dry pavement.
or 4-L (either)

My four wheel drive is not working. i replaced the switch on the dash. tried it and all it did when i hit 4-hi both 4-hi and 4-lo blink a few times the it goes back to 2 wheel drive. it did stay in 4-hi...


It's the transfer case motor.I had the same problem exactly and replaced, now it works great. Part is about $100.00 ( aftermarket ) .Ifyou are going to replace yourself you will have to remove front drive shaft and remove yoke from transfer case with an impact wrench for clearance to remove transfer case motor . When you put the new transfer case motor in make sure you line up slot with grove in transfer case motor. Good Luck.

I have a 1997 5.7 Liter Cheverolet Z71. The 4 wheel drive is not engaging. I can hear the trasfer case engage and can even hear the difference in the transmission when in 4 Lo/hi when driving. However...


Having 4 wheel drive is not actually the case unless you have limited slip on both axles. Do you know if one wheel will spin on both axles. If you can't get either wheel to spin on the front axle and one will spin on the rear then I would agree your not getting front wheel drive. Since you can tell a difference between hi/lo the transfer case is definitely engaging

The electrical switch going to the 4wd is bad more than likely. It would be the one under the truck

4 wheel drive will not disengage.


If you have tried shifting stopped and moving, then I'd say the transfer servo could be broken. It is the motor on the transfer case that shifts it in and out of four wheel drive. If you know how to use a voltmeter, test the wires that run to the servo to see if it is getting the signals it should be. Newer vehicles usually have a computer associated with the transfer case motor. You could have the car plugged to a tester at auto zone to see if it is giving a code.
