    I have the same problem. I have a 98 1/2 ton dodge 4x4. The 4x4 light stays on on the dashboard. I can't find the sensor that is either stuck or malfunctioning.

    May be a dumb question for me to ask, but are you sure it has actually disengaged from 4WD? Even if the shifter has been moved, it may not have disengaged. You can check it on dry pavement by turning while you're driving slowly and the truck should start jerking back and forth, but only do that for a second to check it.

How do you use 4WD on a 1999 dodge durango?


there are 2 systems.
one is a part time system only.the 4x4 locks and is for ice mud and snow.Driving full time will damage the transfer case.The other system is a full time system and the selector says 2wd,4wd part time ,4wd full time and 4 lo. if in full time,it can be driven all the time even on dry roads.The full time is really an all wheel drive system.
the 4low is a very low gear and the main shifter has to be put in neutral and then the transfer case put in 4 low.attempting to put it in 4 low while in "drive" will make a gear grinding noise.
getting out of 4 low is the opposite.shifter to neutral and then put it in 2wd and then in drive.The newer durango has an electronic transfer case with a dial on the dash.The 2002 was available with 2wd,4wd,awd and 4 lo on a switch.The 1999 has the lever on the floor .

4 wheel will not engage on 2002 DODGE DURANGO


you will need to let the durango sit in the nuetral position without moving, then turn the knob from 2WD to 4WD. if that doesnt work, try putting the durango in reverse and then back to drive a couple times. you may have some mud/dirt/oil caked up under there interfering with the 4WD moving parts.
