Question about 2001 Dodge Dakota

1 Answer

Transfer case is stuck in 4hi

My 2001 daokda quad cab shifed into 4 hi on its own while i was driving down the road i quikly put the transmition in nueutral stoped and then shifted the t-case to 4 hi and then back to 2 wd and took off it did it again after about 45 miles now its stuck in 4 hi when i try to shift it the t-case motor sounds like it shifts to 2 wd and then right back to 4 hi Same as the other guy, but mine is a 2005 and it shifts erratically from 4HI to 2HI and even tries to shift into 4LO (but I guess there's a safety feature that won't let it). Took it to Dodge 3 times. Cost me $2100 to fix... and it still isn't fixed.

SOURCE: My 98 chevy blazer won't shift into 4wd.

Most common problem is the vacuum diaphragm that is so inconviently mounted UNDER the battery tray.The cable that locks in the front diff is attached to it and vacuum pulls it in/out.

vacuum leak or vacuum locker solenoid problem. a great way to check for both is to remove both vacuum lines from the solenoid (located on firewall above destributor), and put a connector between them, push the button on the dash and see if it locks in.

4 wheel drive won't engage


Which do you have ?
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
The NV236 transfer case is an automatic transfer case with three drive ranges. Shifting from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive is done automatically when the transfer case shift control module receives wheel rotating slip information from the speed sensors. The transfer case shift control module then engages the transfer case motor/encoder to position the transfer case from rear to four wheel drive. When the transfer case shift control module receives information that the wheel rotation is the same on both axles, the transfer case shift control module sends position information to the motor/encoder to put the transfer case back into rear wheel drive. The three drive ranges are 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO. The 2HI position is for normal driving with the rear wheels pushing the vehicle. The 4HI, position is for driving through sand, snow, mud, gravel, or heavy rain at normal or slightly below normal speeds. The 4HI engages the front axle to allow for four wheel drive. The front axle is pulling the vehicle, and the rear axle is pushing the vehicle. The 4LO range is used for off road driving, heavy snow, deep mud, or shallow fording. The 4LO is similar to the 4HI except that the gearing in the transfer case is set for low speed and high torque. The NV236 is manufactured at Syracuse New York by New Venture Gear a division of New Process Gear for General Motors.

Try commanding the drive ranges while in netural cycling them. This may normalize the controller that senses the position from the encoder motor assembly. There maybe a procedure for that in a service manual.

I have a 2001 gmc sonoma. when i put my truck in to 4hi or 4 lo and go forward a griding sound comes and it doesnt engage but when i put it in reverse it grinds a little then engages what could it be


Sounds like the shifter needs adjusted or it's just plain worn out. It's not going all the way into gear. See if you can disconnect the shifter and click the transfer case into gear by hand. This will tell you if the problem is in the shifter or internal to the transfer case.

4 wheel drive engages itself after rain or snow


I had that problem last year. Dodge fixed it for $500.00 it was the "Transfer Case Motor". Rock Auto Online http://www.rockauto.com/catalog/raframecatalog.php has them for $140.00. 3 bolts, two plugs, 15mins. and your done. Wish I had known it would have saved me $360.00.
