Neutral is only used when you need to tow the jeep. Normal two wheel driving is done in 2h. To engage 4wheel drive keep rolling slowly and engage either 4h or 4L. Generally 4L is almost never used as it is for pulling weight like a vehicle stuck in a snowbank. If it does not return to 2h when you go back into two wheel operation, many times it will if you back up about ten or twenty feet. Don't engage 4 wheel drive while standing still. and never force the lever if you hear grinding.

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.

Cant shift 1996 jeep cherokee into 4 wheel drive/shifter stuck


what aer tires touching? ice or dirt.?
if its not AWD "Quada-Trac"
then its part time 4wd
and is only for driving on ice or dirt
PT 4wd that is what Part time means.

see that here (down for week end)
https://www.jeepdied.com/

see the most common options there.
i cant guess what you bought.

to undo what you did,
get one tire on dirt or ice
and shift back to 2wd

or read your operators guide
good luck.....
i cant really help, can see your shifter
nor see what tires are rolling on.


ALL JEEP PART TIME SYSTEMS DO THIS,
WHEN DRIVERS DO NO READ THE OPERATORS GUIDE
IT'S NOT AWD! IF NOT.

THERE IS NO CENTER DIFFERENTIAL OR MAGIC CLUTCH

2005 jeep grand cherokee stuck in four wheel drive


are you in four wheel low or four wheel hi. if you are in four lo, put vehicle in neutral before trying to shift out and be at a complete stop. if you were in four hi, put vehicle in reverse and keep backing up, usually 4wd while come out and go back into 2wd

How do I get it out of 4wheel into 2 wheel drive?


A 96 grand came with 3 different transfer cases in different models. if you see beside the 4x4 shifter there is the shift pattern printed there. some models only had the all-wheel drive option with high and low. others had 2wd-4wd high-n-4wd low. I would guess that since you're asking this, your jeep has only the all-wheel drive transfer case option. if this is the case... you are not able to run your jeep in 2wd

How to put a 95 or 96 jeep cherokee sport in 4 wheel drive. handle is left of the gear shift.


You can change on the run but as a general rule stop to change to 4wd.except 2wd to 4wd high.Just slow down to about 15mph and back off the gas.
2wd high is normal running
4wd high(is full time 4wd)this is slippery roads or muddy roads.
4wd high lock For bad and slower slippery and rocky roads.
4wd low lock is for extreme 4wd conditions
Don't use the last 2 on the main roads or transfercase will be damaged
Hope this helps

I just bought a 2004 grand cherokee V8 for my son. It has 4wd but the stick slides easily between 4wd all the time, Neutral and I'm wondering if that means it's not working? The whole point of buying was...


Not sure what you mean by "4wd all the time, Neutral".
But I can tell you how it's supposed to operate.

The three modes are 2wd, 4wd high and 4wd low. When switching between 2wd and 4wd high it makes no difference whether the Jeep is moving or in neutral. The only condition that needs to be obseved when switching from 2 to 4 high is the speed of the Jeep. It should not be done above 45mph.
The switch from 4wd high to 4wd low is a different animal. The Jeep must be stopped and in neutral. Also you should be aware that it is not a pleasant sound or feel when moving from high to low so you should worry to much about the lowed junking sound.
At times it may even be necessary to put the lever back to the high position and move the Jeep a couple feet to align gears before it goes into low.

This is the reason for the relative ease when switching from 2wd to 4wd high.
There is an art to switching from 2wd to 4wd high then to 4wd low. Once your son becomes familiar with the Jeep and begins using the different modes it will become easier.
I would like to add one more piece of advice. After building Jeeps for over 25 years and owning several I have found that 8 out of 10 times that 4wd low is used, it's used incorrectly or not needed at all. It's a good idea to find someone who has experience with 4wd to give a bit of instruction on how it should be used. Especially in the mountains.
Let me know if you need any clarification on anything.
I hope this helps.

96 grand cherokee 4wd doesn't work


try lubricating all your linkages and always make sure all 4 tires are the same diameter. this makes shifting in and out a lot easier. you are shifting it on the fly right?? not stopped?
