Question about 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee
Is there a problem with my 4-wheel drive? I hear a click from the front left side.
Were you in 4wd, or have the AWD option
we dont know what options you have nor where your tires are touching
or what mode.
i recommend, opening the glove box and reading the operators guide.
and first finding out which system you have (options)
do not ignore clicking , if in 2WD or AWD.
check for loose log bolts.
check for bad brake parts. (big danger there, huh?)
and check for bad wheel bearings.
any mech can do that fast.

I'm not absolutely sure on the tire size for the jeep itself, but I think they are 225/65/R15's. Not absolutely sure.
As for the noise, from your explanation, it sounds like the transfer case is under a heavy bind. Take it off of the road in some grass or dirt and then move it forward a few feet then simply hit reverse. Don't move much maybe an inch and it may release the bind. Once you get the bind off the transfer case, it should slip out of 4wd, unless there is damage in the case/shifter itself.
When operating four wheel drives, with tires of different sizes it causes extreme stress on the gearing in the transfer case. Larger tires don't turn the axles as much as smaller tires. So, this causes stress in the driveline as the front is actually turning slower then the rear. In turn, this will put so much pressure on the gears that it could cause damage and the shifting mechanism will not work correctly to pull it out of 4wd engagement.
Try those ideas, and see if you can get it out of 4WD. Definitely put four tires on the jeep that are all the same size. This will keep you from having excessive stress on the transfer case and gearing therein.
I hope this helps out buddy.

SOURCE: Jeep Liberty Clicking Noise
Check the wheel bearings. Run the car and check where the noise is coming from. the wheel bearings make a gravelly, clicking noise if the bearing is bad. Lift the car and move the wheels up and down , to the sides etc. Listen or if the wheel moves , your bearing may be bad.

It's unlikely a relay is producing your symptoms.
The on the fly 4WD in the Cherokee is engaged inside the front axle. If for some reason it doesn't fully engage, it produces a clicking sound until it either fully engages or disengages.
If that clicking you are hearing gets more rapid as you increase speed, slows down when you do, then that's what it is.
A vacuum leak is the likely problem, easy to fix, difficult to find.
I have a Cherokee. I had the same problem. Start checking vacuum lines that lead under the engine to an actuator attached to the front axle.
