Check linkage adjustment and that it's engaging fully. if that's OK, problem is inside transfer case.

Why can't my 2006 jeep go into 4 wheel drive?

are you on dirt? or pavement...????????????????????????
we cant answer until you answer what 4wd option you have.
if that makes no sense, then read the operators guide,
it tells you what's there and how to use it.
read that first, then ask questions,?
and if Part time 4wd?, it';s not to be used on dry pavement only ICE.


4WD: Select-Trac (or older Select-Drive has a slip coupling too, NP129/229) is AWD in that, "the "4Hi" setting the drive shafts were coupled together using a viscous-type coupler " this anti wind up slipper"
Watch out for exception 1: Select-Trac NP228 based jeeps, it does not have a viscous-type limited-slip coupling. It was used briefly in 1986.
Quada-Trac is full time 4WD (not in lock mode) has a real center differential to shift torque between front and rear. This is the best system , not just a slip clutch as above. Then went BACK to the slipper in 1980. (odd huh?) Up to 1998.
Quadra-Trac-II "4-All Time", "N" or neutral, and "4-Lo". In "4-All Time", torque is applied to the rear wheels under normal driving conditions.
If the rear axle starts rotating at a significantly higher rate than the front axle, hydraulic pressure builds up in the gerotor oil pump and causes the clutch pack, to progressively transfer torque to the front axle, until both axles return to the same speed
Quadra-Trac I was introduced in 2004-10, same as above but is automatic with no driver controls ,like above.
The Quadra-Drive system was introduced in 1999 and is based on the Quadra-Trac II system but adds limited slip differentials (the best full time system ,with great traction to all wheels all the time) 1999 to 04.
Quadra-Drive-II has electronic limited slip differentials or ELSDs 2005 up.

2008 Jeep Compass is stuck in 4 Wheel Drive with exclamation point by the 4 WD indicator...

If you are driving on the highway in 4wd drive the poise may be from the tyres trying to slip and equalise the drive line torque that is building up . Rule of thumb for all 4 wd vehicles is to restrict 4wd to loose surfaces (gravel-snow-ice -grass- mud --any surface that allows the tyres to slip) to relieve the torque wind up.

2006 Jeep Wrangler. When I put it into four wheel drive, it is making a grinding noise. This happens on ice and if I gun it, I believe that I am only getting one wheel to spin up front, the driver's side....

Don't have your foot into the gas when shifting into 4 wheel. Best is to shift at a lower speed and "feel" the shifter as it goes in. Abandon the attempt if it grinds (picture parts doing really bad things to each other)
One general driving tip...Never do anything on ice. Shifting, steering, braking or anything else can throw you out of control on icy surfaces. Anticipate bad conditions and begin using 4x4 before you are in a situation where you need it.
Practice shifting your unit...though they are "supposed" to all work the same, every one I've ever driven had a certain amount of "quirks" that had to be learned.
About the one wheel spinning...most people don't realize that on most jeeps you have tow "open" differentials which means that at any one time only two wheels are driving you (except those with limited slip rear diff, in which case you have 3.)
Good luck with it

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.

1995 jeep grand cherokee 4x4

There are essentially three different transfer cases used in 95. Generally slipping out of gear is caused by partial engagement, requiring linkage adjustment, or by internal wear of case componets. I would have either checked by a reliable competent trans shop. An at-home rebuild is not impossible but parts are not cheap and a small mistake can ruin an otherwise good job.
Good luck with it!

1998 Jeep Cherokee Sport 4 wheel drive

I also have a 1998 jeep cherokee sport, i was having the same issues so i asked my uncle who is a mechanic.. he told me since the jeep automatically locks the hubs when you put it in 4 wheel drive, sometimes the hub locks get stuck trying to unlock, to solve this when you switch back to 2 wheel drive, reverse like 10 - 15 feet, the wheels spinning the opposite way help unlock the hubs, since i started doing this as soon as i reverse i feel the 4 wheel drive unengage and have not had a problem with it since, give it a try and see if that fixes your problem
