Here even the odometer must also be showing incorrect mileage(actual distance) which if lower than the correct distance means that since the jeep is 96 model it must still be having a cable with one end attached to the non-power wheel drum. That end of the cable is supposed to be square shaped. When the corners get worn out due to normal wear & tear, it starts slipping. This results in a very jumpy display of the indicator in the speedometer. So if mechanical,then simply replace that cable. If its hydraulic or pneumatic, some oil seal must have leaked and air is trapped inside. Since its light in weight, it will subsequently form bubbles resulting in jumpy readings. In that change that fluid line and refill it with correct quantity(volume) of the same. If its electronic, some coils & capacitors may need replacement or Buy the entire set..............sodeep

Transmission not shifting


With the wheels off the ground ,does the spedometer work? No spedometer no shift. If the truck takes off in second gear,and no shift. You have lost power to the trans. It is in the default mode. Check and make sure that ALL tail light bulbs are good, Really, A blown tail light bulb of fuse will stop it from shifting

Stuck in 4wd lo how to get back to 4wd high


Did you try backing up straight about 50ft. then try it again. Sometimes you build up drive line strain and there is so much pressure on the gears you can't move them. Backing sometimes relieves the pressure.
