How to turn off the part time light on 2006 jeep liberty 3.7


first off , you made a big errorr
i bet you are not on DIRT or ICE.
so if now in PT or 4wd LOW.
that means its now all bound up, called winded up
the book in the glove box said dont do that.
so how to undo the wrong.
easy, there are only 2 ways. (me 3)
1: gently turn and put one tire on dirt, (something lose)
(dirt,grass,gravel,sand,ice, packed snow. etc)
the it comes out now
2: way2, is jackup any tire of the pavement not it shifts out of PT part time.
this error can case damage to the transfer case chain
its also dangerous on the road to you and the others there.
see this,
even AWD jeeps, all wheel drive can have PT options'
called 4low,
do not do this.

My2002 chevy wont come out of 4 low


Did you fix the E brake problem? Replace the rear cables or cut them at the rear brakes. To much pressure on the T case can keep it from shifting. Especially from 4 low.

Are there damage to any 4wheel drive components shifting from 4wheeldrive setting still with transmission is indrive


Most 4WD systems are designed to be shifted in and out "on the fly". It is less stressful for the drive train doing it while in park however. 4WD does not like cornering - especially on "grippy" surfaces such as dry asphalt (why would you need 4WD on dry asphalt, anyway?). Dry asphalt is really tough on 4WD as the the tires may have minute differences in circumference as a result of wear and since all are spinning at the exact speed (even going straight ahead), those difference add up and strain the drive train. Slippery surfaces allow the tires to slip away those differences as soon as they begin to appear. Even wet pavement allows this to happen, tho not as easily as grass, dirt, snow or ice.

Drive in a tight, complete circle on dirt and you'll see that there's a shorter path of tracks for the inside tires than those on the outside. Yet, the 4WD locks all wheels to turn the same amount. The jerking during the cornering that you're feeling is the inside tires trying to spin to "catch up" to turning at the same rate as the outer tires. See the video linked below.

Check your manual and you'll likely be cautioned against running 4WD on dry pavement for these reasons.

Jeep Liberty 4 Wheel Drive won't engage


part time or awd ?
do no engage part time 4wd on dry pavement.!! only on ice or dirt.
do post what your tires are touching? dirt or pavement????????

if stuck in 4L , on dry pavement , pull over to side of road, dirt
then shift out. if no dirt anywhere? sand or gravel or grass.?
then jack up one wheel then deselect 4Low. back do 2WD
options for your car, (do post what you have)
qoute sales brochure:
Those going 4WD can enjoy the standard Command-Trac II, or opt for the Selec-Trac II, featuring full-time AWD, 4WD Lo and a rearward-biased torque split. (end quote)

how you drive both cars, varies greatly.
in your glove box is an operators guide , did you read that yet

How is four wheel drive used on a 1999 durango


Hi Ralph.

I do not own a Durango, but have owned many 4WD vehicles and can offer tips for proper usage.

The "L" and "H" after the 4 and 2 stand for "Low" and "High" ranges. The 2 and 4 stand for the number of wheels that can receive power from the engine and transmission. Most 4WD vehicles only provide power to 1 wheel on each axle (front at rear for a total of just 2 wheels powered) at any given time (but for purposes of discussion, we'll call it 2WD & 4WD, as advertised).

Generally, "2WD" is only offered as a High range and is the same as a "normal" 2WD car or truck. I haven't seen a car or small truck that offers 2L (but I haven't seen a Durango - so I don't know), but generally 2WD traction can be increased easily enough by simply shifting the transmission to a lower gear (From "D" to "2" or "2" to "1", etc.).

4WD is designed to provide additional traction whenever 2WD isn't sufficient. This can be when surfaces are slippery such as sand, mud, snow and ice or, when pulling a heavy load such as a trailer and tires are not gripping the surface well. Shifting from 2WD to 4WD High will provide more traction at the same tire speed. Maximum power from the engine does not come at low RPMs, so in order to get more pulling power from the engine with out increasing speed (or spinning tires), the transmission should shifted into a lower gear. This is especially helpful when pulling a trailer up a wet incline, etc. If 4WD High in 1st gear is still allowing tires to spin or not providing enough pulling power, then shifting the transfer case from 4WD High to 4WD Low will allow the engine speed to increase (providing more power) without increasing the speed of the wheels (reducing the chances of spinning tires).

4WD should never be used while operating on dry pavement. Since tires wear at different rates, and turning left or right slows the inside tire and speeds up the outside tire when compared to the rear tires, a certain amount of slip is required. Wet surfaces provide this necessary amount of slip - as does sand, mud, snow, ice, dirt, gravel, etc. You should take the time to see how each selection of High and Low affects engine speed and vehicle speed and how the surface and any trailer further changes traction. With a little experimentation, you'll see how it works and be able to choose the right range with little thought.

Don't forget to have the transfer case & front differential fluids checked and changed as per the manual. Neglecting this simple service intervals can leave you stranded when you need 4WD and can be very expensive to repair.

I hope this helps & good luck!

After switching from 4x4 LOW back to AWD, the transmission stayed in 4x4LOW.


This happens now and again on 4X4's. You must not continue to operate it on normal "dry" surfaces until you disengage these hubs. Permanent damage will result. First thing to do is make sure you are on wet, loose gravel, sand, dirt, etc. Switch transfer case back to 4Low. With steering straight move a little forward and without hitting the brake slip in neutral allowing truck to come to rest by itself. Switch Transfer case to next position, I assume 4low. Place in drive and drive forward and backward until you feel it come out of 4 low. You don't have to drive it crazy back and forth, just 5MPH normal back and forth maybe 20 feet forward and 20 feet backward. It's good to allow the truck to stop by itself allowing the hubs to spin freely then placing in reverse doing the same. Apply brake, repeat until unlocked. You may find that if it is not unlocking, try to push lever back into 4low, power on, the release accelerator, switch to 4high all the while it is drifting and gently power on again. If you drive on solid surfaces ignoring the driveline, you will bind the axles and destroy some element of your drive line...The weakest points first. Hope this help and do not forget to rate this high if it helped you.

Jeep cherokee tires are chirping when I turn and wont unlock


You may have to raise the wheels off the ground to get it to disengage due to the dry pavement binding things up. Another possiblity would be to drive in mud,dirt or wet grass so the wheels can slip and release the binding condition. Sometimes rolling backward in grass helps. I hope this helps.
