How to shift a 1998 jeep grand cherokee into 4 wheel drive

How do you shift a 1998 jeep grand cherokee into 4 wheel drive? Is it 4 hi or 4 lo that I should use on snow and ice? Should you shift while moving or while stopped? Bought vehicle used and have never used the 4 wheel drive on it before.

Four low is almost never used. I use it on very steep rocky or muddy trails in the woods or to pull someone out of mud or a ditch. Though some will shift standing still it is best do do this while rolling. Four high can be shifted at low speeds of 2 to about 35mph (higher also but not really good idea) Low can only be shifted between 2 to 10mph. If you find yourself stuck and unable to shift because you aren't rolling you can also turn the engine off, engage the transfer case and re-start. That avoids having the gears clashing together. Best rule is if it begins to grind, don't force it.

98 Grand cherokee all time 4x4 wont shift into 4 lo


older post 1month
you failed to say what tires are touching, dry pavement or ice/snow or off road...... MATTERS big time.......!

the operators guide tells you not to do that.
the rules for 4Hi and low are different. RTM? yet?
last year ZJ
Quadra-Trac(tm) NV242 box. it is. full and part time box.
what does it (oper guide)tell you.
stay out of part time on dry roads. (clear?)
rule 2, save rule for Low Range.
low range is not full time 4wd.
if you fail to believe it , it will wind up and go crunch

here is the direct quote.... see last line,,, its 100% real.

How to switch 4 wheel drive back to 2 wheel drive in my 98 Jeep Grand Cherokee


that is because you have Part time 4wd? (what do you have)?
and must not drive on pavement free of ice.
its now winding up the drive train, bad for it too.

drive, to dirt, sand, gavel or grass and shift out of 4wd.
or jack up 1 tire, and same,
one tire must be on slippery surface. at least.

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

1999 jeep grand cherikee 4 wheel drive not working


You need to be more specific. To start, which 4 wheel drive system your jeep has? (Select Trac, Quadra Trac II or Quadra Drive)
Then: does it never work, or only in 4-Lo?

The 4 wheel drive lever on these Jeep are on the floor straight down from where the radio is. It just say hi and lo and N every jeep this year I have seen you cannot take out of 4wd just switch from HI or LO. If it don't have the leaver it is just a 2wd then and yes they did make just Rwd Jeeps.

The grands come in two different 4x4 setups.One is part time and will have 2 hi 4 hi neutral and 4 low on the shift indicator.The other option is all wheel drive and it will have 4 hi neutral 4 low.If you have the first option run it in 2 hi unless you have snow then use 4 hi.If you have the second option the run it in 4 hi .Good luck!

I know this sounds stupid but how do i engage my four wheel drive on my 2002 jeep grand cherokee laredo? I dont have my owners manual here and i have never used it before.....Do i shift into while the car...


You do it with the engine on and put it in neutral. To place it on 4WLO or 4WHI. It all depends if you have a auto 4 wheel drive these type engage the 4 wheel drive automatically when the wheels spin to about 16 MPH. Then there are the ones you press a button to engage it to 4LO , 4 HI or 2WDrive. The last is you have a lever that you manually place in whatever position you want. 4LO, 4 HI and 2Wdrive.
