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

SOURCE: 4x4 shifter moves around freely with no resistance

My stepson also has a 99 grand cherokee and had the same problem they have a cable that connects the shifter to the transfer case. his problem was the cable broke. I changed it for him and works fine now but it's not easy to change so do not try to change it yourself unless you know what your doing.

SOURCE: I HAVE A 98 GRAND

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!

Automatic not changing gears


check the shifter mechanism for binding up and not moving freely into positions. Not starting in park but in neutral indicates something is out of alignment with the shifter. May just need cleaning and a bit of oil/grease to fix.

Sounds like your shift cable came unhooked or just plain Broke, it hooks to shifter and hooks to transmission, If it moves freely I would say it's Broken, and that is why car won't start cause it is still in drive

How to engage the 4 wheel drive on a 1991 jeep cherokee


You can "shift on the fly" at up to 45mph - just let off the gas and pull the shifter back to 4hi. DO NOT try going to 4lo while moving.

Another way is to stop, put it in neutral, and pull the shifter back to 4hi or 4lo.

This is vacuum activated - so if you can't get it to engage - the vacuum motor is failed - or you have a disconnected or rotted vacuum line.

Cherokees have the command - track. You'll see a lever next to the transmission shifter that has letters 2H, 4H, N, 4L on it.
You can shift from 2H (2wheel drive high range) to 4H (4wheel drive high range) at any legal speed.
If it's an automatic, I recommend just taking your feet off of both pedals, so there's not a lot of torque being passed thru the transfer case.
If it's a standard I recommend stepping on the clutch when you shift, but it's not necessary.
To go to Neutral just pull the shifter back one more position to the N position. To shift into 4L (4wheel drive lo range) you must be stopped.
I also recommend shifting the transmission into neutral when you do this. Push the shifter to the right, then pull it back.

Thanks!

Transfer case into 4wheel drive the frount axle dose not engage


There is a solenoid plunger that is screwed into front axle. Unscrew the plunger turn key on put into 4 wheel dive and verify that plunger is moving. If no movement you have to find out why. If moving, then front axle has a issue. Hope this helps.
