Wow no year stated, you do make this hard.

no

your not correct.

why not say what surface you are on?? ice, dirt? what?

AWD means car can drive on dry pavement as the AWD has a

center differential, (a very nice option)

ok, there are 2 axles. open and closed

or open diffs and locking LSD

open diffs suck but wait, not really.

if your car has LSD all wheels, turn buy LSD actions.....

if fully open, then 1 lose wheel spins and the traction tire dies.

(sucks, huh, but.... look here.)

so all savvy 4wd drivers drag the foot brakes and get poor mans 4wd.

try it , on ice and be AMAZED,, it does work.

then... about 2007?

on my 2008 jeep JK, it has software 4wd locks, it does the above

drag trick with software, (amazing huh) using the ABS Pump.

it sees the ABS sensors go nuts and corrects it with the pump.

a nice feature,. for sure. and free. totally free, no LSD hardware.

I dont know the year of your car so can say. what it really has.

there are many 4wd setups. im used to ww2 jeeps and part time.

im on my 5th jeep and not one GC. (its too heavy for serious 4wd off road)



The FSM covers this magic, you can get a real FSM for small cash

i recommend it, on all cars.

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

a reluctant transfer case can sometimes be coaxed by shifting into reverse, backing up 10 feet, and then back to forward.

Fwd lights always on jeep compass


try it in dirt yet (gravel, sand, grass dirt)
since you didnt post transfer case type can't answer
if you use , part time 4wd on dry pavement this will happen as
will 4low or lock. read the operators guide, one more time.

its a new car get it serviced, or drive in dirt, and turn off 4wd
see if it stays off. if you use the car wrong, the dealer will just stare at you, in a very not so funny way.

new cars come with options, or by sub model, (same really)
some have Automatic Full-Time Four-Wheel Drive
which one?
The Compass also features two electronically controlled four-wheel drive systems. Freedom Drive I and Freedom Drive II, Freedom Drive I is a full-time four-wheel drive system with locking capabilities

if some one used LOCK
you need to unluck in dirt. drive to side of road with gravel
or any loose surface and get bad to normal.

Wont go in four wheel drive


what does won't mean?
  1. The lamp don't come on. (the lamp can be out)
  2. actual 4wd fails , that is, the tires don't turn, up front,under power, id bet you didnt check? actual 4wd actions?

which one.? which 4wd do you have.? and what mode did you select.?
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Jeep_four-wheel-drive_systems

on Part time, you cant drive on dry pavement in PT 4WD.
got Part time? I think not, but??? dont know for sure....
Guessing:
i bet you have select track (no GRAND in title)
quote:
Selec-Trac offers full-time all wheel drive in addition to the part-time 4WD of Command-Trac. Full-Time all wheel drive has the ability for the front and rear axles to rotate at different speeds, making driving on dry and wet surfaces possible year-round without shifting back to 2WD again. It still has the ability to lock the front and rear axles.
end quote
-----------------------------------------------------------------------------------

do not use COMMAND-trac on dry pavement. its for ice or offroad only.

Imitsubishi shogun engaging 4 wheel drive


no year?
never drive, part time 4wd on pavement, unless said pavement
is ice or snow covered.
only AWD allows pavement (tires direct upon) driviing.
part time 4wd is for offroad , off pavement driving,
this is because 4wd has no center differential.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four-wheel_drive

and with out such, winds up the drive line fast. and breaks it.

wiki states (no year stated by you)
Part-time four-wheel drive was standard on all models. to 1991
then came
ActivTrak 4WD
cept
4H (high-range full time four-wheel drive), 4HLc (high-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential) and 4LLc (low-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential
so do not use LOCKED on pavement. on active track. only 4H
the wiki states the Super-select is retained 2006 to present.
Super-Select 4WD II

read the glove box manual under 4wd

Turning sharply in parking lot vibration or rubbing feeling in the steering also in reverse on 2001 grande cherokee with quadra track 2


1st let me make sure I understand your Jeeps 4 wheel drive. I believe the quadra trac system is a full time 4 wheel drive, there is no 2 wheel drive setting, only a separate 4 Lo (for very slow speed). If this is correct, the problem is, the quadra trac system you have is supposed to compensate for any variations in wheel speed, whether it's driving in the snow, or cutting the wheels sharply to park on dry pavement. What u describe is typical behavior of a part time 4 wheel drive system. The problem is, your full time 4x4 should be compensating for this, and it's not. So, let me know if the above info about your 4wd is accurate (no part time 4wd setting, no 2wd setting, only full time 4wd and 4Lo setting. If it is, the system is not compensating for changes in the wheel slippage correctly.
