1. There is no limited slip differential on the Nitro. It was never offered as an option. Traction control acts by applying the brake to the spinning wheel, thus sending torque to the opposite wheel.
2. 4 Wheel Lock locks the 2 drive shafts together - 50/50 torque split.
3. There is NO center differential in the transfer case. Thus, our system is considered a Part Time 4WD system.
4. This being said, you can only engage 4WD on a slippery surface, or you may end up breaking something.
5. The Traction Control works on both the front and back, so it acts like an ELSD on both ends.

SOURCE: Cannot Disable the 4 wheel drive on my 2001Toyota Seqouoia

Not sure if this works with your car or not but it's worth a try.

Place in park
start motor
put foot on the brake
place car in neutral
If your car has a button marked 2wd push it. This should return you to 2wd mode
return car to park
turn off motor and remove foot from the brake.
BUT the best thing you can do is read your owners manual if you do not have one call your nearest Toyota dealer and ask for the service department and ask them how to put it back into 2wd

You need to check the cv joints in the front end or the u joints in the front drive shaft.If none of the above then the problem is internal in the front diff.

SOURCE: GMC '91 Jimmy, Transfer case. When in two wheel

Yeah your right about waer but you might be blaming the wrong part. With the truck up on jack stands ( all wheels off the ground) have a helper drive the truck at the speeds that make the most noise you'll find it in the front axel or fround U joints or drive shaft splines ( drive shaft jumping ) You watch the parts moving and the joints or the cable that shifts the ront axel in and out not moving all the way it uses a vacume motor under the battery that has a cable going to the front axel. the clutches that are in the front axel have clips on them that hold the side gears that engage and disingage as you turn it on and off the clips break get lost fall off were out and let the side gears do as they please and they runinto each other a click and pop/ the cable and the shift fork that move them also fail but not htat much as the cable fails and the vacume leak pulls on a spring in two wheel and it may not be pulling hard enough/

How to fix dodge nitro shutting off while driving


You may want to check to see if the recall on the TIPM was performed. All 2010 thru 2012 Dodge Nitros were affected. The TIPM can malfunction, causing the fuel pump to shut off while driving, as well as many other little issues that can make the vehicle seem almost "haunted". The recall was issue September 21, 2014. Here is a link to a page that will explain it.

Switch to 4 wheel drive in Mercedes Benz GL450


You have permanent all wheel drive dude. The system is always ready to go. If you want to do some offroading, activate the "off road" button that looks like a vehicle climbing uphill on the lower, center dash panel. This will allow more slip for the traction control system and hold lower gears longer in the trans
