Do not attempt to replace by yourself unless you have a mech. background.. if you do check at some bone yards and see if you can get the part. and most ratios are standard. unless its been beefed up. or call a few garages and get estimates for the repair..good luck

I got a 2000 Oldsmobile Bravda and has smart track that works when it wants to the service light comes on once and awhile. When I really need 4wd it doesn't kick in Help


There are three different transfer case's ! Which of these does your olds have ?

Transfer Case - NVG 136-NP4 (One Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)

All three have an electronic control module ! When the light is on DTC'S are stored in the transfer case shift control module .

SERVICE indicator (AWD/4WD) lamp
The SERVICE indicator (AWD/4WD) lamp is an integral part of the instrument cluster and cannot be serviced separately. This lamp is used to inform the driver of the vehicle of malfunctions within the automatic transfer case (ATC) system. The SERVICE indicator (AWD/4WD) lamp is controlled by the transfer case shift control module via a Class 2 serial data message.

There are three speed sensors on the Automatic Transfer Case (ATC), two on the rear output shaft and one on the front output shaft. Each speed sensor is a Permanent Magnet (PM) generator. The PM generator produces a pulsing AC voltage. The AC voltage level and number of pulses increases as speed increases.
Vehicle Speed Sensor
One of the two speed sensors on the rear output shaft is the vehicle speed sensor (VSS). It is an input to the vehicle control module (VCM). The VCM sends this information to the transfer case shift control module via the Class 2 Serial Data bus.
Rear Propshaft Speed Sensor
The transfer case shift control module converts the pulsating AC voltage from the rear propshaft speed sensor to a Rear Propshaft Speed in RPMs to be used for calculations. The Rear Propshaft Speed can be displayed with a scan tool.
Front Propshaft Speed Sensor
The transfer case shift control module converts the pulsating AC voltage from the front propshaft speed sensor to Front Propshaft Speed in RPM to be used for calculations, and to monitor the difference between the front and rear propshaft sensor speed. It is also used in the AUTO 4WD mode of operation to determine the amount of slip and the percent of torque to apply to the front axle. The Front Propshaft Speed can be displayed with a scan tool.

Transfer Case Encoder Motor
The transfer case encoder motor is a permanent magnet D.C. motor and gear reduction assembly. The encoder motor is controlled with a Pulse Width Modulated (PWM) signal provided by the transfer case shift control module. It is located on the left hand side (drivers side) of the transfer case. When activated it turns the sector shaft of the transfer case to shift the transfer case. This circuit consists of a power supply relay (Motor Feed A circuit ) that supplies voltage to the motor. The Motor Control B circuit is a PWM driver that varies the duty cycle to control the amount of current through the motor to ground.

There are a number of codes that can set .
DTC C0300 Rear Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0305 Front Speed Sensor Malfunction
DTC C0308 Motor A/B Circuit Low
DTC C0309 Motor A/B Circuit High
DTC C0310 Motor A/B Circuit Open
DTC C0315 Motor Ground Circuit Open
DTC C0374 General System Malfunction
DTC C0376 Front/Rear Shaft Speed Mismatch
DTC C0550 ECU Malfunction
DTC C0611 VIN Information Error

You don't want to just start replacing parts , that could cost $$$$$$ . You could check connections at all the sensors an the control module , but other then that ,well . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Can a 98 jeep grand cherokee 4.0l perminant 4+4 run without the front propshaft


The front propshaft on my full time 4 wheel drive 94 Grand Cherokee was vibrating badly years ago so I removed it and my Jeep has driven just fine without it since, no vibrations.Doesn't seem to cause any harm that I know of.

I'm on my second front diff replacement and being told $1000 min. w/ some parts being $600. ?! really?!! 4WD will not engage but switching mechanism works fine. i'm not real clear on whats going on but...


None of the parts individually, should cost $600, but they aren't necessarily cheap. Also the cost to rebuild the unit takes into account the time involved. It might be cheaper to just replace it.

Rough banging drive


if it's and SL or VR4 the carrier bearings on the propshaft( driveshave from front to rear on AWD) can get loose and cause a banging.
check for slop in the joints between the rear diff and the wheels. you really need to pull and push things around as hard as you can to find something loose enough. Also the whole rear diff is on a frame that hase bushings connecting it to the car so the busshings could have worn.
check the fluid in the rear diff for metal particles and make sure there's no slop in the diff. the propshaft going into the rear diff on the awd should have a small amount of play no more than 5mm.

2002 grand vitara v6, will not engage 4x4, (no front axle activity) no activity light, tried 4-hi, and 4-lo, switches on t-case show shift rail activity, dont have a schematic to trace diff pump behind...


I had the same problem on Fraser Island over the Australia Day weekend. The problem was the rubber vacuum hose connected the front diff. There is a metal pipe than comes from the vacuum pump and along the lower engine cross member facing the front of the car. In my case the sand had dislodged the pipe which it turned dislodged the rubber vacuum hose connected from the pipe to the rear top of the front diff housing. This hose engages the front diff / hubs - if they don't engage the 4x4 green light won't come on. After reconnecting the rubber hose everything worked perfectly.

Hope this helps.
Cheers

I have a 2003 jeep tj sport wrangler, with a six cylinder, 5 speed standard trans wondering what size diffs are in it


You most likely have a Dana 30 front and a Dana 35 rear, unless you have the towing pkg. which would be evident by rear disc brakes and a rear center section that is almost stop sign shaped. The gearing in your Jeep can be determined by the tags on the diff covers but it is most likely that you have 3.07 gears unles you have the towing pkg. in which case you would have 3.73
