Well, in the future it would be better to let us know what it is exactly that you drive, (cherokee, grand, jk, cj, ....)however, i'm guessing from the picture that you drive a grand. I dont know how long you have owned it or if you have put it in 4 low before, but you need to put the normal transmission in neutral before shifting to 4 low using the transfer case (the thing that gives you 4wheel drive via the lever) However, on your vehicle, if you have full time 4 wheel, i think you have the selec-trac transfer case and only have a switch. According to the Jeep website and i'm assuming your manual, you need to slow the vehicle to 2-3 miles per hour and then place it in neutral before attempting to shift to 4 low.

    I just re-read your post and i missed something, you said that you had to pull up ion your lever and in that case you dont just have the switch (obviously), My mistake. In any case, the same principle is true, although the system alows you to put the transfer case in 2wd 4wd high "on the fly" you must slow the vehicle first but you must not come to a complete stop (2-3 mph) or mave your foot on the brake at the time. Once it has fully seated in the 4wd Low possition (it will present a little resistance, but not realy hard), then just put it back in drive and be very gentle with the gas.



    Sorry for my first mistake,

    I made a mistake, you said you had a lever to pull up on, that means you dont have selec-trac and no switch, but the same principle applie. Slow to between 2-3 miles pre hour and do not keep your foot on the brake, place both controls in neutral and then place the lever in 4 low observing a little resistance and once seated place the transmition back into drive. Be light on the throttle when in low.



    Sorry for the mistake,

What is wrong with my 2000 chevy blazer ; it is a 4wd automatic an i locked it in 4wd low to pull my boat out of the water and can not get it to shift back i to 2wd?


You shouldn't have to use 4wd to tow a boat out of the water. Does your truck have a 2wd button or just the 4high and 4low button? If you have a 2wd button, put tranny in neutral and then hit the 2wd button. If you just have the 4high and 4low button, put the tranny into neutral then press the 4high button twice (Once to get back into 4high, then again to get out of 4high and back to 2wd).

2000 chevy suburban stuck in 4 lo anyone out that cant help


Put truck in Neutral while key in run position engine off or on (doesn't matter which). If it's pushbutton 4wd then try hitting 4low again. if that doesn't work some of the chevy trucks required you to press 4hi to get into 4high and then press 4hi again to get back to 2hi, unless yours has a 2hi button. In that case press 4hi to get into 4high and then press 2hi to get back to 2wd. either way you need to be in neutral to get out of 4lo. I have shift on the fly (Mechanical Shifter on floorboard for transfer case) on my 1990 Suburban and still have to put it in neutral to get out of 4lo. Good Luck.

O99 jeep grand cherokee 4wd low does not work


This jeep is all wheeldrive and has a lever to go from 4high and 4low,first take a look at the transfer case linkage to make sure linkage is connected and not broken or frozen, alot of times the linkage freezes up from lack of use and sometimes bends or breaks so look at that first. if the linkage is good and no problem with it then we go on to the transfer case, take note that bent linkage will make it not go into 4low, okay the next step will need the transfer case to be checked for a inside bent fork or broken fork this will need to be done by a shop. the case needs to be removed and opened up to check the shift fork. good luck, hope this is helpful.johnjohn2_64.gif

F-250 will not go into 4-low, 4-high is ok


Good Evening. 4high is a simple deal to get working. 4low has a few more steps. First of course is starting the truck, shifting down into neutral at a stop then put it in 4low. After doing so then put it down in drive 4low should now be engaged. And to take it back out of 4low simply reverse the operation. Any other questions let me know, becuase if it can do 4high the shifting motor can do 4low.

2000 jeep grand cherokee quad drive but onlythe rear wheels turn


usualy you will only have two tires spin at a time even in 4 lo or 4high. those tires are going to be diaginal from each other tipicly. now since your vehcle is equiped with quad drive it may employ a limited slip rear differential to help it along. however this only afects the rear axle. now you can test it by jacking your vehicle up and setting it on jack stands. one for each wheel onder the axle tube on a good solid (concreat or black top) flat surface. then have some one you know and trust to get in the car and put it into drive . now you can actualy see what wheels are spinning or not.now is were the limited slip comes in if you have one rear wheel spinning and the other is sitting still the limited slip will engage and start the other wheel spinning . now this may bang until the other wheel catches up (note that the faster the wheel is spinning the harder it is on your truck)now be very carfull stay away from the wheels tires and all other spinning parts it is a machine it can hurt you badly. but give it a try and it will answer your question. be safe hope this helps

Shifting into 4wd low


If it is the push button shift you need to have the transmission in neutral with the truck running.I think the manual shift ones are like that as well.
Hope this helps........Good luck!
