2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd

Just purchased, 130,00 miles. Transfer selector arm in 2wd, dash says ''Part Time'' and vehicle is in 4wd. Can tell by the noise after you reach about 30mph and higher. Part Time 4wd does not appear to be disengaging. If I put the lever in 4wd the Part Time light goes off.

I questioned the dealer about my 2005 because mine was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty had the same problem. I took the guard on the 4wd shifter off and then was able to shift it around enough so that it was not in Part-time 4wd. There was no noise associated with the light being on however.

I have a 93 jeep Cherokee, it will move in 4wh and in 4wl but will not go back into 2wd?


Hello guy
try posting what 4wd system you have,? first.
command trac or select track, (the latter is full time)
part time or the full time system,
we cant guess it....
read the operators guide first, if a part time system only
as i suspect, stop driving on dry pavement.
it's only for ice, or dirt. part time. part time is not a full time system.
Command-Trac
shifting to 4wd on dry (means no ice) pavement causes, drive line wind up! and the gears to lockup. (see steering get tight in turns?> and is dangerous to drive it like this , you, me and the box)
posted here 100s of times.

http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html


the non grand Cherokee. early

had these choices
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP231 Command-Trac, part-time only, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP231 has the following settings: 2HI, 4HI, N, 4LO
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP242 Selec-Trac, full-time or part-time, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP242 has the following settings: 2HI, 4 full-time, 4 part-time, N, 4LO


as you can see you need to first know, what NP box you have or
photo your shift lever for 4wd, an post it and we tell you.

more facts, on select trac. (totally unlike command trac)
Selec-Trac locking hub is used on 4WD Cherokee. Selec-Trac
utilizes a non-disconnect front axle. Engagement of 2WD or 4WD is
accomplished at transfer case by means of mechanical shift linkage.
System allows full or part time 4WD. Selec-Trac can be shifted into
2WD or 4WD modes from inside the vehicle at any speed.
unquote
next from the service manual,
4WD TO 2WD
1) Place mode select switch in 2WD position. Transfer case
should shift to 2WD and not allow shifting into 4WD or LO range. Axle
should shift after transfer case shifts.
2) To determine if front axle has completed a shift out of
4WD into 2WD, position mode select switch back to 4WD position while
operating vehicle at slow speed. If vehicle shifts into 2WD, axle will
ratchet. If shift is not completed, transfer case will shift into 4WD
and hissing sound will come from mode select switch.
end quote.

if unsure read the FSM book its free.
shows you both systems and how to diagnose it.

in the box, click Cherokee,,then click 1993, and behold.
the real deal.

I have a 56 plate jimny the fourwheel drive light is on on the dash is it stuck in fourwheel drive ?


Did you reverse more than 10 metres? Sounds like the hubs are locked into 4wd.this will work if you have auto hubs.but sometimes you have to turn the hub manually if they don't disengage.if you have gone some time or distance in 4wd

I have a Jeep Liberty 2005, 60,000 miles on it.. Had to use part time 4 wheel drive to get out of sand last week.. went back into 2 wheel so I thought. Did the frontward/ backwards thing you need to


4L or 4H??????
is this Selectrac???? has 5 mode do say going from which mode to mode you did. and did so before or after leaving the sand.

drive it on sand,dirt gravel, ice, or grass
in 2wd and it will un wind
my guess is you wound it up. the drive line in PT 4wd.
did you read the operators guide carefully ?
this year is last year for free opr, guide. 2005
10 year range it is.
http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/

page 239?
tow 244
the Selectrac has FT 4wD. do you have that?
if not , you must get it to unwind.
do tell what drive line you have
what mode uses.
and when
and if the lamps changed correct before leaving sand.
or for sure, not in AWD

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 292000 miles. Runs but will not drive in any gear. Selector will go into hear but it wont move. It can be pushed while in neutral. Was told transfer case was bad but even...


Could be either, a transmission problem or transfer case problem.
Someone will probably have to remove the transfer case to find out.
The torque converter, pump, valve body, or various parts in the transmission could have failed. The transfer case could be stuck between 2wd and 4wd or could have a broken gear.

Noise from rear of when in auto 4 wheel drive


First of all, the noise is not coming from the rear. The noise is only happening in 4WD mode, that involves the transfer case and front differential.
When was the last time the transfer case fluid change, it is recommended that it be changed every 50K miles. It is possible that you have transfer case issues. It is not recommended to operate the drive system in Auto mode constantly, this will wear out the internal clutches.
If the road surface does not warrant 4 wheel drive, keep the selector in 2WD.

My 99 Chevrolet silverado 4wd not working.ive replaced the dash switch and still nothing .when I turn the key the 4wd switch lights stay on for a split second then goes off. What else should I try?


I have run into to this problem many times on these trucks, i have seen your problem and also where the 4wd high light wont work but 4wd low and 2wd work fine and the 4 wheel drive works fine. on your truck i will bet its the transfer case selector motor.
the motor is what turns the lights on when in the selected mode which goes through the 4wheel module under the dash, this sounds like a bad selector motor and that where i would start. this motor is located on the transfer case, it bolts to the rear of it.here is a picture of it to help you locate it. good day.4_14_2012_12_37_13_pm.jpg

When out of 4 wheel drive the left and right rear end makes a shattering sound. while the verhicle is not running i can rotate the wheels left and right on the rear i don't feel any resistance or hear...


its possible that the problem could be in the transfeer case. you didnt state which 4x4 unit is in the jeep.... there were 3 types, one was all wheel drive full time with a low gear selector, the 2nd was a part time 4x4 manual shift with a low range selector and the 3rd was a pushbutton on demand 4x4 unit. if your jeep is a all wheel drive unit and you are having these problems its defititely something for a transmission shop to look at due to how everything works. if you have the manual select, are you following the proper shifting procedure for the transfer case (found in the owners manual and possibly also on the inside of the driver sun visor). as for the pushbutton if you are not having any electrical issues( no lights on the selector switch) it could be the the transfer case itself. if you are sure you are performing mode changes (2wd to 4wd or 4wd to 2wd) properly its probably time for a shop to take a look at it.
