Question about 1995 Jeep Wrangler
It has a manual transmission, used last time in 4-lo, will not go back into 2W drive. I can switch between 4-hi and 4-low, but not into 2 WD
My guess... is car is 4wd not AWD, like my wrangler
and non go back to 2wd from 4wd if car is sitting on dry pavement.
you never stated road conditions ,so i guess at dry road and not offroad.
Partime 4wd is only for ICE or offroad, if you read the lost operators guide it tell you that.
the solution (TSB subject) is to drive to dirt and switch to 2wd.
if no dirt, jog car in a straight line, and try , forward the back the try.
or jackup one wheel. and try.
its locked in to 4wd due to WINDUP, (bad driving)

OK, simple problem, and a quick fix... (And I consider changing my own oil to be the extent of my automotive education.) I had this happen today. A little online research from the jeep community showed me the external cable that connects your 4WD knob with the arm on the transfer case is held on that arm with a plastic clip that is fond of disappearing.
When the jeep cooled down, I crawled under, found the cable end hanging freely, and simply set it back on the arm. With no clip it will pop off again, but it allowed me to shift back to 2WD and roll home. I understand a zip tie will keep it in place until you get a 3/16 nut of some sort. (Can't be more specific about the nut yet, I'm waiting for more info.)
It was a relief to find out that I didn't need to have anything done with the transfer case, etc... If you show the dealer the problem, I'm told they often want to replace the whole cable, as the clip comes as part of the whole. Waste of time and $$$, and I canceled the appointment with the dealership when I learned the simplicity of the problem.

Four low is almost never used. I use it on very steep rocky or muddy trails in the woods or to pull someone out of mud or a ditch. Though some will shift standing still it is best do do this while rolling. Four high can be shifted at low speeds of 2 to about 35mph (higher also but not really good idea) Low can only be shifted between 2 to 10mph. If you find yourself stuck and unable to shift because you aren't rolling you can also turn the engine off, engage the transfer case and re-start. That avoids having the gears clashing together. Best rule is if it begins to grind, don't force it.
