SOURCE: jeep stuck in low four wheel drive

Put the transmission in neutral, emergency brake off, foot off the brake pedal, now try shifting out of 4 wheel drive low. If that doesn't work, drive forward, and again do the above, trans. in neutral, roll to a stop, foot off brake, try to disengage. What you're probably experiencing is called drive shaft 'wind up', and it is very difficult to disengage, but do the above and it should shift out of 4 low. countrycurt0

SOURCE: four wheel drive not engaging

You can check the vacuum lines and diaphram that are located underneath the battery shelf. Comes out really easy. Check that the lines are not broken. There is a vacuum line that runs to a solenoid in the center of the fire wall, make sure they are not broken there, and there is an actuator cable that runs to the transfer case. Sometimes it is as easy as replacing the vacuum hose, the actuator cable, or the diaphram under the battery shelf went bad. If you ever had a battery leak acid because it went bad.....that acid goes under the shelf and eats those lines. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: parking brake will not disengage on 2005 jaguar s type

hi mike i had the very same problem with my 55 plate s type this morning 4 feb 2009 had driven a journey of 20+ miles at 9am with 4" of snow on the ground and at this point no problems and i would assume the discs and pads would have been toastie hot and the assoc parts ,
but after a quick stop for ten minutes i restarted the car and drove away up a slight incline in snow /slush the rear wheels lost traction and the dsc sybol illuminated on the dash after getting no traction in this mode switched dsc off and managed to get some traction by hook or crook on reaching the major grit treated road and gaining full trction the dsc was re selected
as per normal start up but then i noticed that i had the amber oval warning light on the dash and park brake fault promt on the info lcd .
On stopping the car i tried to switch off the engine and re start to see if this would reset or clear the display
resulting in the car still showing same fault msg and this time unable to select a gear and the gear selector stuck in park

on calling jaguar assist an engineer arrived within a reasonable time with laptop and conections to do a diognostic scan
finding that his pc would not cummnicate with my car following several attemps the engineer went on to get the park brake disengaged by these next two steps and i can only say that this worked sufficently to get the vehicle off the road to a more suitable investigating area
in my case my drive way less than 1/4 mile away

step 1. inside the boot lift the floor to expose spare wheel and battery compartment
then on drivers side, the interior that covers the rear light cluster should be teesed back there are two black fixings that secure this in place one being 1/4 turn the other a full thread plastic nut
once this liner is pulled back (easier with two people )there is a white (PARK BRAKE ) module sat there with a multi plug going in .
this multiplug contains severa wires going into it.
from what the engineer said the two your intrested are clearly fatter than the rest and control the motors that engage parking brake force to the calipers .
now heres the clever bit take 2 peices of wire at least 2 feet long making sure the ignition is off and key out
(this is also where a friend comes in handy )
where the battery is, remove the cover from atop of the live + terminal and place place /hold /secure one wire to each batery terminal this done then carefully touch the exposed other ends of each wire into the little gaps where the individual fat wires go into the multiplug trial and error will do one of two things
1/ nothing and the brake motors will just remain powered to keep brake force applied so by swapping them round should give the desired result in powering the motors to RELEASE breaking force and thus disengage

REAL IMPORTANT NOTE MAKE SURE THE VEHICLE CAN NOT ROLL ,OVER YOU ,OR AWAY ,CHOCK A WHEEL OR TWO WITH SOME THING BLOCK OF WOOD BRICK MOTHER IN LAW YA GET MY DRIFT

so stage one complete but error msg and drive selector still not moving

step 2.
go to
center console where ashtray is ,lift cover to expose cigar lighter
the trim panel that is sheild shaped and surrounds the gear selector should be grasped firmly by placing your four fingertips along the flat top area where it meets the ashtray and prise upwards toward the roof this removes the trim plate without any damage and exposes the Jgate selector linkage and the plastic dust shroud that rotates when various positions are selected .
now on the pasenger side look into the gap that has become visable and a small aprox 1/2" to 3/4 " protrusion with a flat straight lump similar to a slotted screw but in reverse if you get my drift sits on the side of the selector by rotating this button/protrusion with your finger tip or screw driver tip and trying to move the gear selector from its park position this should allow the selector to move down the gate,while the engineer did this in my case i was sat in the drivers seat and had the car held on the foot brake so that the normal protocols of selecting were observed also the engine was running on moving the selector neutral was selected and at no time was park re selected til the vehicle was recovered to my drive way
however whilst driving the car the parkbrake fault warnings were still present and the asssoc beeps were audible .

strangly once we were on my drive the car was re plugged in to diagnostic laptop after the engineer had tried it on the land rover disco he had attended in and this done just to elliminate that his laptop and cables were funcioning correctly which they were ,
my car began to communicate with his machine and a reset was done
the get you out the S**T CHEATS were put back to normal
the PARK BRAKE FAULT warning was cleared and so far so good

its been very intresting to note that all the posts i have read on the web seem to refer to 2005 models and that adverse wheather conditions seem to play there part i was relieved to have this fixed and very grateful to the engineer who was so very helpful and happy to share his wealth of knowledge without which i could not have passed this on

SOURCE: GMC '91 Jimmy, Transfer case. When in two wheel

Yeah your right about waer but you might be blaming the wrong part. With the truck up on jack stands ( all wheels off the ground) have a helper drive the truck at the speeds that make the most noise you'll find it in the front axel or fround U joints or drive shaft splines ( drive shaft jumping ) You watch the parts moving and the joints or the cable that shifts the ront axel in and out not moving all the way it uses a vacume motor under the battery that has a cable going to the front axel. the clutches that are in the front axel have clips on them that hold the side gears that engage and disingage as you turn it on and off the clips break get lost fall off were out and let the side gears do as they please and they runinto each other a click and pop/ the cable and the shift fork that move them also fail but not htat much as the cable fails and the vacume leak pulls on a spring in two wheel and it may not be pulling hard enough/

1990 GMC suburban actuator and fuse location. There is not one on front differential and no place for fuse in fuse block. 4 wheel will not engage. No owners manual


The actuator will not be on the front differential or drive line, it will be on the transfer case, which is mounted behind the transmission. Follow the front drive shaft back from the front differential, and the component at the rear of the driveshaft is the transfer case. That is where four wheel drive is engaged/disengaged.
I'm not familiar with your vehicle, but if you have a separate lever to engage 4wd, there will not be a fuse for the actuator - it is a manual system. If the 4wd is selected electrically, check that all wiring and connectors on the transfer case are in good condition.

Select 2wd,4wd dash light is still illuminated,does this mean it is still in 4wd,if so what am I to look for ?


On four wheel drives turning is a real indication when four wheel is still on...4wheel is a bit more sluggish on turns. But, im a bit old school and am thinking trucks since nothing is listed. Most electric transfer cases have an actuator than engages an disengages electronically, but sometimes they get sticky and require a love tap or driving in reverse to disengage the actuator... you could also suspend the vehicle in the air and engage an disengage a see what is happening too.

How do I find instructions for changing out 4wd shifter cable/rod ?


that is called the FSM
the OEM factory service manual.
09 JK , i have 08.
what transmission, is there A/T or m/t stick>??

alldata.com has this
as does tech authority. (FSM source real)
if doing work DIY buy the book first, the read it and ask questions?

is this your first cable? ever?
not even ever fixed a bicycle cable.???

the shifter lever goes to a thing called, the transfer case
i hope you read the operators guide first, and not driving on dry ice free pavement, as that is wrong, so dont blame shifter on your not reading the book.
why not post symptoms first, the your guess. be best huh?
but ill play this game, you asked how, so will tell.

did you scan it first to see if you have C14xx errors.?

jack up car, yet, and have person 1 move lever and person2
look at the transfer case end. to see if the cable even works in
its full range, (1:1 ACTION) ?
IF IT DOES, you are barking up wrong tree.

to remove cable page 7167
1. Shift transfer case into 4L.
2. Raise vehicle.
3. Remove clip securing the transfer case shift cable (2) to the shift cable support bracket.
4. Disengage any additional shift cable routing clips, if necessary.
5. Disengage the shift cable from the transfer case manual lever.
Fig. 111: Shift Lever

6. Lower the vehicle.


but only if its bad. if it moves full range , wheels off ground, its good.

Why would I have to change a 2004 Buick rainier transfer case what would be the problem?


If it will not disengage the transfer case out of 4wd drive then pull it and have it checked out . Understand that if you drive in 4WD on hard surfaces then there is drive line torque wind up that occurs as the front and rear wheels cannot even out the differences in travelled distance because there is no mechanism to allow this to happen . Consequently any shifting mechanism like levers -actuators - motors will not shift as the teeth load prevents it from happening..4w is for off road and snow and ice conditions where the wheels can slip and equal out the wind up. Any way driving in 4wd on hard surfaces dramatically increases fuel consumption from the torque wind up situation.

How to disengage all wheel drive to two wheel drive


if your awd or 4wd shift lever has the option for 2wd than put the trans in nuetral at a complete stop and put the shift lever for the transfer case in 2wd if there is no option for this selection than the only way is a labor intensive transfer case swap to a np 231 and it will be a couple of modifications to allow this to work. i hope this helps

Stuck in four wheel drive


If you are saying that the transfer case is stuck in 4WD, you may have to get under the vehicle, and look at the transfer case, on the front, you should be able to see where the 4WD shift lever hooks to the linkage. If it is disconnected/broken, take a pair of channel locks, or pliers, and pull the shaft you see coming from the transfer case. this will disengage the 4WD. Unfortunately, if you cant pull it. You will have to get someone to put the vehicle in Drive, and creep forward while you pull it. Make sure their window is down so they ear you say stop.

Trnsfer case wont engage


This vehicle has a solenoid on the front differetial that switches between 2W and 4W drive. The mechanism also contains a swtich that tells the truck what position it is in. Your problem may be a faulty solenoid. It is relatively easy to replace.

4 wheel drive will not disengage.


If you have tried shifting stopped and moving, then I'd say the transfer servo could be broken. It is the motor on the transfer case that shifts it in and out of four wheel drive. If you know how to use a voltmeter, test the wires that run to the servo to see if it is getting the signals it should be. Newer vehicles usually have a computer associated with the transfer case motor. You could have the car plugged to a tester at auto zone to see if it is giving a code.

1990 Suzuki Escudo 4 wheel drive


As far as I know the procedure should go something like this...

Stop the vehicle, engage the parking brake and if applicable, get out and turn the hubs on the front wheels from Free, to Lock.(You may not have these on a Suzuki, they may be auto-lockers)

Get back in the vehicle and put the transmission shift selector into Neutral.

If you have a manual transfer case, move the selector-shaft to 4x4-High, or 4x4-Low -- whichever is desired. Now, putting the vehicle in gear with the transfer case is sometimes somewhat difficult. As long as the vehicle's transmission is in neutral, don't worry, the gears inside the transfer case are big and beefy -- Don't be afraid to be rough -- Again as long as the transmission is in neutral. You may also have to disengage the parking brake and slightly let the vehicle roll forward or back with your foot-brake to get the Transfer case to lock into place.

Once 4x4 of the selected High, Or Low range is selected, usually indicated by the vehicle jerking slightly with a slightly loud clank/thud. Move the Transmission selector out of neutral into your desired gear (Drive if Automatic, if Manual, whichever gear you pull out from). and voila! You should now be in 4-Wheel-Drive.

To disengage 4-Wheel-Drive. Just reverse the steps.
