You need to identify the brand, model, and year when posting a vehicle question, unless this is a generic question for all vehicles. A service manual could identify the part. Then, you could probably order such from Whitney. If not, google for parts for your vehicle providing the identifying information for it.

SOURCE: 2000 dodge durango

hey, im a usa sailor and i have also encountered this problem. how i fixed it.....,
you may be missing a little rod that attatches the handle from the cab to the crankcase. if you have that rod then see if the holes in the levers under the truck have little rubber grommets. these are what holds the rods in place.

if missing :
the your nearest auto parts store preferably napa or autozone usually runs about thirty bucks at most

the rubber grommets.......usually any hardware store will have these for only four bucks

2002 Chev Silverado, 2500, 6.0 engine, auto trans with manual engage 4 WHD. 4 wheel drive does not work

You have a switch on the instrument panel ?
The NVG 263 transfer case features a three button shift control switch located on the instrument panel
The NVG 236/246 transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel.
The New Venture Gear (NVG) 261, RPO NP2 transfer case is a two-speed, part-time with "mode shift-on-the-fly" capability. It has a chain driven front output shaft and an epicyclical low range planetary arrangement. The NVG 261 transfer case features a four position shift lever control located in the vehicle floor plan. As required, the operator can select 4HI position from 2HI "on-the-fly," as described in the owners manual. A dash 4WD lamp will continue flashing during shifting, until all criteria have been met and the new mode/range position has been reached. Once the new mode/range position is fully engaged and the front axle disconnect locks in, the dash light 4WD indicator lamp will remain ON constantly. Range shifting functions similarly, although it should be limited to speeds 8 km/h (5 mph) or less.

My 2005 Jeep Liberty 3.7 is stuck in 4Lo and only goes to neutral, not 4Hi or 2Hi. I checked the transfer case and the cable to the shift lever is broke. How do I get it back in 2Hi so I can fix the cable!...

why not replace the cable. first.? its bad fix it, replace it.
sure you need 2h, sure, but that must be done by hand.
jack up all 4 wheels, and move the lever to 2H,
by hand, its just a lever. but you need to get stress off axles (tires off ground) so you can shift by hand. at transfer case
and forget the silly lights until you fix cable and shifting.
best is key in pockets.
transmission in neutral
tires off ground,
the transfer case shifts more easy, like that, with just fingers on lever on box. (the shifter lever has , gain, that is, Archimedes, lever advantage, with that missing, by hand is harder, see?>)
mech, 101 , answer. that.

this care came with 3 transfer cases.
if you look at the box, rear, the tag there says what you have. look.
NV231, (part time)
241gen2, part time
and 242 (full time)
we cant guess that so answers will be vague.

step 2 in the fsm, states (cable removal)
2: raise vehicle.

for sure you can shift by hand, if the box is not seized
did you check the oil level yet, (gear lube) at the filler hole?
dip finger in, get finger wet? if not , hummmmmmmm

Won't go into 4 low

Have you tried shifting the automatic transmission to neutral, or if manual transmission- place shift lever to neutral position, then shift the transfer case to neutral position wait a couple seconds then try shifting to 4 low- if you have manual hubs, engage those last. This removes most of the potential mechanical resistance that should allow for the transfer case to shift.

If it still will not go into 4 low you may be dealing with damaged teeth, bent shift dog or worn internal bearings inside the transfer case. As I recall, that was NOT a shift on the fly transfer case.

My 96 chevy pickup with auto 4 wheel drive wont go in to 4 wheel drive and the indcator lights just flash in 4 low. when i turn the key off the transfer case keeps shifting in and out of gear. i know its...

Thee is a mechanical tightening mechanism that goes over the rod that connects your shift lever to the PTO lever. It is secured with a bolt. If this bolt has come loose, the mechanism may have moved (slipped on the shaft) and the shift lever will not be synchronized with the PTO lever. There may be evidence this slippage on the rod. If so move it back to its original position and tighten. If not adjust in the direction you suspect it moved from in small increments until it works again. May need to reverse direction, of course, if it gets worse. Let me know if this helps. Thanks.

Need to find out about the transfer Case it won't engage into 4 wheel drive

First thing to check is if that the lever on the transfer case is actually shifting when you move the inside lever. The rod that connects the shift lever to the real case lever has an adjuster on it, which could be a problem. That rod just pops out at each end. You can pry it out with a screwdriver and then shift the transfer case manually from under the car to see if things are acting correctly.

Truck will not shift out of 4x4 low

If you are following the procedure in the owners manual ( shift into Park or Neutral ) prior to shifting out of 4L, you can try 2 things.

1. Old school back up ~ 30' and then put into park and try shifting out of 4L. This is how it used to be done, and if the transfer case is binding, this can relieve the pressure.

2. If you have an ESOF ( Electronic Shift On the Fly ) 4x4, you can have someone turn the range select switch while tapping on the back of the transfer case with a dead blow hammer ( do not use a metal hammer, could damage the case ). This is to see if the ESOF shift motor is held up.

The truck when into 4L Ok, so I would assume power is to the transfer case, but it could be a contact plate issue, where the truck is trying to shift out, and the contact plate is not signaling the GEM ( Generic Electronic Module ) that the transfer case is in 2WD mode, and unlock the front axle / change the range switch to 2W indicator ).

Pot back what you find out, and if you have a ESOF or MSOF ( Manual / Mechanical Shift On the Fly i.e transfer case lever ).

While shifting from 4x4 to 4x2 the gear lever is jammed at neutral position & jeep is not moving

there are no syncros in the transfer case, that would ease in shifting. i would try putting it in gear with the transmission, this will reposition the gears in the transfer case. then back to park or neutral. now try shifting to 4x2.
