If you're on dry road and it bucks when slowing down, if you are turning, that's normal. If you are going in a straight line, you need a front end alignment.

03 jeep liberty stuck in 4 wheel drive and not shifting out of second part time light will not cut of but will go to lo and high what can it be


If you have true 4-wheel drive as opposed to all-wheel drive and you were driving on a dry surface with four wheel drive engaged, you may have "wound up" torque between the front and rear drive trains. This happens because when turning, rear wheels take a shorter route than the front wheels and this difference has to be compensated for either in the transfer case or by slippery or snow covered roads, or it will bind, and the resulting pressure makes moving the selector very hard. You have probably felt this happening ("bucking") to a lesser extent when making tight turns while in 4WD in the past?

If this is the case, all you have to do is jack up the front end - and preferably get both front tires off the ground. The jeep should NOT be running. If it was "bound up," this will release the pressure and you will probably see the front wheels spin a bit. You should then be able to move the selector back to the two-wheel or all-wheel drive position.

Good luck.

The low range light has come on its stuck on 4x4 and is slowing my truck down how do i fix this


you cannot run your truck normally in 4x4 low!!!! the low is designed to go slow slow.try shifting into neutral gear on column tap the high 4x4 then shift to reverse,back up 15feet then shift to drive.it should go into high 4x4 then if you want to go back to 2wheel high shift to neutral tap the 4x4 high until the light goes off,shift to reverse and back up 15feet then shift to drive and the 4wheel drive lights should all be off. then you'll be in 2x2 rear wheel drive. thank you for choosing fixya.com

What gear should i drive in snow and ice


Depends, do you have 4 wheel drive? If so you can just use 4 wheel high, or if things get really slippery, use 4 wheel low and go slow, both in the drive position on the transmission shifter.

If 2wd, just use drive and go slow, again, if it gets slippery out, you can shift down in gears to go slower and to keep your speed slow.

If you're talking about snow and ice on just streets, then stick with 4 wheel high with 4x4, or "drive" in 2wd. You typically don't want to switch to 3,2, or 1st gear at highway speeds.

If you're playing in the snow, just use 4x4 high until you get stuck, then switch to 4 low to get out.

The only time I switch gears with the transmission (from drive to 3,2, or 1) is when I want to go really slow and keep it there. However, when I "play" in the snow, it's Drive only.

Does this answer your question? If not, let me know! Thanks

When drivingtruck in 2 wheel drive the 4 wheel low light will flash and when slow truck down to a stop it will shift into 4 wheel low and will not go back to 2 wheel high


Sometimes the solenoids will stick on the axle neither in 2 or 4 wheel drive, if this problem started when you weren't shifting between two and four wheel drive it is probably the push button switch cluster on your dash going bad

(!) A Light like that went off and my steering well got stuck!?


hello this the indicator for a transmision fault or problem /the pulling motion you felt could be a harsh shift from the transmision when you were coming to a stop . if the light is on the vehicle should feel slow when driving off because when this light is on the transmision will go in to felsafe mode and will actualy shift its self to 4 gear to give you a high gear for highway use . you should take the vehicle to a certified bmw shop or mecanic to have it check out , dont used it in fellsafe mode this could damage the transmision internaly and that will become a $ problem ,.
