Give the shifter a good hard hit on the top. Sometimes it pops out of place.

You may have broken a retainer clip on the linkage. Raise the vehicle and look where the shifter comes through the floor while a helper moves the shifter. Verify the linkage arm moves with the shifter. If not, then look closely at the linkage arm and bottom of the shifter shaft to see if either broke or if the clip is missing.
Good luck!

97 jeep grand cherokee stuck in 4WD part time


Which transfer case you have 242 (Selec-Trac on the shifter bezel) or 249 (Quadra-Trac on the shifter bezel). If it's a 242, you're looking at probable linkage adjustment which is done underneath the vehicle. If it's a 249, you're possibly looking at viscous coupling (VC) lockup.

Adjust the shift linkage; heres what to did...

...the blue arrow indicates where the linkage originally was (the lock nut screw), moved it down the green rectangle is showing the back of front driveshaft near the tcase, just for perspective.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I'll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using Fixya, and have a nice day.

Shift lever won't go to park and moves stiff even while pushing on metal lever on the side of the transmission


The first thing i would do is to disconnect the cable at the lever on the ******, next move the lever at the ****** by hand and it should move by hand with little force. if the lever is hard to move then you may have a trany shift rod problem. next with cable removed try to go through the gears with the shifter , the shifter should flow with ease if its hard to move then its the shifter cable or the shifter itself. to find out which one you will need to disconnect cable at sifter and then move the shifter to see if its still tight. if the shifter is tight to move with cable removed then its the shifter but if it moves with ease then you have a bad cable. good day.

Stuck in drive


The shifter cable that runs from the lever down to the transmission is most likely broken. You can move the lever on the transmission to put it in park.

How to shift into 4 LO in 2004 jeep grand cherokee


The correct procedure should be described in detail in your owner/operation manual.
For a 2004, 90 % sure that if it's a quadra trac you have to immobilize the vehicule, put your transmission shifter to neutral keeping foot on the brake obviously, engage the low on transfer case pulling the transfer case shifter, engage the transmission to drive
If it's a select track, normally you have to keep the vehicule moving very slowly (2 mph), move the transmission shifter to neutral, push the transfer case shifter to the right and pull it firmly. Once transfer case engaged, put back the transmission shifter to drive.
It could take few seconds to engage and disengage depending on the temperature and road condition. Do not try it on dry surface (preferable on mud, snow and wet surface). Drive at low speed because you will feel that it's very low geared.
By the way, follow the reverse process to reestablish normal mode

Hope it will help

Don't know how to use 4WD on 1995 jeep cherokee


the jeep cherokee has 2 different types of 4 wd systems. the command trac has 2 wd, 4hi, neutral and 4 low. if driving on pavement make sure it's in 2 wd. it also has shift on the fly, up to 60 mph you can move the lever to 4 hi and it will not hurt anything. if trying to go to 4 low, be rolling less than 5mph and put the trans shifter in neutral and move the 4wd selector to 4 low. do the reverse to move back to 4 hi or 2 wd
