Question about 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee
I have a great Jeep in general, but I have a warning light coming up that the 4x4 switch needs serviced. What the *** is that?
This switch does not switch the vehicle from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Grand cherokee have a manual shifter for that. The 4x4 switch is on top of the transfer case and tells the driver information display what 4 wheel drive mode the Jeep is in. ex..if you have selectrac, in 2 wheel the rear wheels on the display will light up, in 4 wheel all 4 wheels will light up, in 4 wheel low it will have the word low lit up in yellow. This is the only purpose for this switch and a bad one will not affect the functioning of the 4 wheel drive. Check out Rockauto.com and a new one can be purchased for about 35 dollars. If you call the dealership and ask for a 4 wheel drive switch, they will have no clue what you are talking about. The actual name is " 4WD indicator light switch"

Update on this. I have recently had the same problem with my grand cherokee. I discovered that the problem was actually a short in the driver information display. I had to have the display repaired by an automotive electronics repair shop. This also solved the problem with the display saying "check oil level" even with the oil was full

This a switch that switches the suv from a 2 wheel drive to a 4x4.

4 wheel drive system will not disengage?
4WD light is flashing and beeping? NO 4WD high? http://schematicsdiagram.blogspot.in/2012/02/4wd-light-is-flashing-and-beeping-no.html
