2500 sierra HD 4wd is stuck in neutral. this is a manual shift, not electric. Had been working fine


Put main gears into 1st.
With a gentle foot on the clutch, you can hold pressure on the selector and slowly bring pedal up so you can 'feel' something moving with the stick. If it doesn't go in first go then 'rock the box' with clutch movement at that sweet spot where it just starts to engage (in and out) and it should drop in.

Have 2005 chevy silverado stuck in 4wd-lo will not shift to 2wd all lights are out checked fuses are fine


If all the lights are out then the 4wd switch is bad but,if it won't come out of 4wd-low then the 4wd actuator is bad or stuck.The 4wd actuator is what engages the differential from 2wd to 4wd.HOPE THIS HELPS!!!

During the recent snow storm I used my 4wd. I'm trying to shift back to 2wd but it is stuck in 4WD LO


With the engine running, transmission in neutral, foot on brake, push the 2wd button. If it doesn't respond, try the same thing with the engine off, key on. If it's still in lo range, you may have to get under the truck and shift the linkage manually. While you are under there, check the electrical connections and vacuum lines.

How do you use 4WD on a 1999 dodge durango?


there are 2 systems.
one is a part time system only.the 4x4 locks and is for ice mud and snow.Driving full time will damage the transfer case.The other system is a full time system and the selector says 2wd,4wd part time ,4wd full time and 4 lo. if in full time,it can be driven all the time even on dry roads.The full time is really an all wheel drive system.
the 4low is a very low gear and the main shifter has to be put in neutral and then the transfer case put in 4 low.attempting to put it in 4 low while in "drive" will make a gear grinding noise.
getting out of 4 low is the opposite.shifter to neutral and then put it in 2wd and then in drive.The newer durango has an electronic transfer case with a dial on the dash.The 2002 was available with 2wd,4wd,awd and 4 lo on a switch.The 1999 has the lever on the floor .

My 4x4 is stuck in four wheel low it is shift on the fly and i have already replaced the transfer case motor


Ok here is a long shot but sometimes it will work. Put the 4wd position switch to 4wd Lo, put your transmission in reverse and back up for about 50 yards, stop and put your transmission in neutral, then shift the 4wd to 4wd hi, wait a few seconds and shift the 4wd to 2wd hi, Sometimes the t-case will get stuck and this is how you reset the computer. I have known people that really got their t-cases messed up because they thought that shift on the go meant that they could shift the t-case into 4wd LO while moving but shift on the go is only for 4wd hi the gears will not mesh up fast enough for 4wd LO because the ratio is 1 to 1 . I hope this helps you.

Stuck in 4wd lo how to get back to 4wd high


Did you try backing up straight about 50ft. then try it again. Sometimes you build up drive line strain and there is so much pressure on the gears you can't move them. Backing sometimes relieves the pressure.

Stuck in 4 Wheel Drive Gear 1989 Jeep Wrangler was stuck in sand. Shifted to 4 wheel drive and now cannot switch back to AWD. Any suggestions?


Assume that is stuck in 4wd, cannot shift back to 2wd. Have you tried shifting to 4wd/Lo and back? Try letting out on the clutch while slowly rolling?

Assume you are manual transmission?

I just bought a 2001 blazer 4.3 4wd and it was stuck in 4 low


It should tell you on the Shifter whether or not that you can Shift on the Fly. Check the Manual first if there is one in the Truck. Some Models had this and some Did not. Was an Extra from Factory Option.
