1999 Jeep grand cherokee limited with Quadra trac only works as two wheel drive when all wheel is selected and will not go into 4-lo. Sounds like it isn't engaging fully and feels like the lever should go...


Could you tell me what selection you have on your 4x4 shifter?

You have 4 high (full time) N 4 Low and nothing else?

Quadra only sends power to the front axle when it is needed, it uses a hydraulic unit that senses slip then send power to the front.

You also need to make sure your getting it in to gear right, for me I found that getting to 4 low can be hard as they tend to bind, move the 4x4 shifter to N take your foot off the brake and pull it into 4 low, do the same getting back out.

I have owned every 4x4 Jeep T case in Grands from 93 to 02 they offer fantastic traction and options and are strong.

Make sure your T case fluid is full, if you have never changed it DO SO, as dirty fluid plays hell on them, if you do have Quadra trac you need to get the correct fluid for the case, go to your Jeep dealer and get it, DONT put trans fluid in as this dose not work right with the system.

If you want "Locked" run the system in 4 low, as heavy off road in 4high with Quadra is not the best for heavy off road, use 4 low to that.

If you need more help just ask, I hope this worked.

1993 2HI N 4LO, 1998 5.9 LX Quadra trac with limited slips 2000 2HI, 4HI full 4HI part N 4LO 2002 Limited with Quadra with Vari-Lok differentials.

How do i kick the 4 wheel drive in on my 92 wrangler i kno u have to put the shifter in to 4 weel low or high but it doesnt kick in does anything else have to happen


the hubs on the front wheels have a lock, turn this in the direction indicated by the arrow to lock the hub. When your'e done with 4x4 unlock the hubs again, they may be hot after a harsh or long drive in 4x4 so be aware of this.

4 wheel drive doesnt work.


Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.
