Your system is operating normally. It is NOT designed to be driven on dry pavement in 4wd mode.

The part time switch in the gearbox is sticking in the on position locking the 4x4 on. It feels and looks really bad because the front wheels are trying to pull the car left or right, while the rear axle is pushing you forward. This is at it's worst when in full lock on road or hard surfaces. This is why 4x4 is for off road only.

I have a 1991 jeep cherokee and i just changed the

Turn the engine to TDC, so the line on the crankshaft balancer lines up with the zero. (Number one cylinder all the way up, and it should be blowing air with your finger in the spark plug hole on it's way up. This is TDC) Note, make sure you turn it the same direction as when it is running!!!! (Turn it with a socket on the end of the crankshaft, clockwise facing the front of the vehicle) Now with the distributor cap off, the rotor should be pointed at where the number one spark plug wire goes into the cap.

you can test your signal wire to the starter by having someone turn the key to start while you put a test light on the signal wire at the stater.If there is no signal on the light then there is a problem with the sending wire from the ignition.
