On the back of the case you should see a round tag. The numbers you are looking for are right on there.

Where is the 4wd switch on a 95 jeep grand cherokee


Let me guess you are having your Vehicle Information Center flash and chime "SERVICE 4WD SWITCH"? I have the same problem with my 95 Jeep Grand Cherokee and after much research I have discovered that the 4WD switch usually is not the problem but instead it is the VIC. From model years 94-98 the VIC ribbon wire is faulty in the VIC itself next time the message pops up tap the front of your VIC and see if it stops the message and chiming. If it does you need to repair or replace your VIC (new from dealership is about $600 - $800 depending on your location and their markup).

As for the location of the 4WD sensor it is located on top of the Transfer Case. It is awkward and difficult to get to.(the switch that is) Crawl under the drivers side of the Vehicle just behind the Drivers door there are three different sensors located on and around the transfer case the one you are looking for is located on top of the transfer case near your 4WD linkage it will have four wires going to the clip but in truth only two of those four wires are actually hooked up.(the extra wires and which ones are hooked up depend on your model of transfer case which you can find out by looking at the identification plate riveted to the back of the transfer case itself. You will need the model number when requesting the part. Unless your particular 4WD switch has Vacuum Lines running to it which you will be able to see) In total there are three different cases associated with the 95 model year Jeep Grand Cherokee. You should be able to identify the switch easily enough. There is another switch that is easier to get to located between the transfer case and the forward drive shaft THAT IS NOT THE 4WD SWITCH and the Speedo is located as the farthest back sensor on the transfer case just before the rear drive shaft. Sometimes just changing the fluid in your transfer case will be enough to get rid of that annoying message on your VIC.

As for my Jeep adding fluid did help a little bit but my VIC took a dump. I replaced it with one from the junkyard for $125 bucks no problems since. There is a way to repair the VIC by removing the front bezel carefully and then removing the 4 screws that hold it in place carefully pull it out of your center console and then disconnect the wire harness from it (disconnect your battery first) then remove the six torque screws from the back of the VIC unit and carefully pull the front face from the back piece you will see a ribbon wire not unlike what is in a computer and then shining a light into the spaces where the ribbon goes to the face look carefully at the solder points if any of them seem discolored or missing (they should look shiny and completely cover the wire they are placed on) just carefully add some solder to these points and put it back together again when you are finished reconnect the wire harness and replace it in the console then reattach your battery and start the vehicle it should work like new. (in my case i lost my temper with it before discovering this simple fix and broke the clear plastic front leaving me with no other choice but to replace it)

I hope this information helps!

Computer says to check 4WD Switch on 93 Jeep Grand Cherokee.


I just fixed the same problem with my own GC Limited - and it WAS a dealer part (in my case). In order to get the correct switch you need to determine what type of transfer case you have. You can do this by crawling under the vehicle near the middle and look for a small round metal tag mounted on the back side of the transfer case. Once you have that number (new process type 231, 242, 249...) you can order the correct part.

If your local jeep dealer is of a friendly sort you may even be able to avoid all the crawling around and just tell the parts manager your VIN# and he will be able to tell you what type transfer case you have - provided that it is the factory installed original.

According to the mechanic who works on my 93 Jeep it's one of three things:
1) Corrosion on the connector to the switch (which is located on top of the transfer case).
2) A bad switch. Part cost about $22.00, or
3) A bad console display. he says they have had a fair number of console display units fail. That one runs about $240.
My Jeep display it only once in a while. I have checked the connections and they are fine so the switch replacement is next. If that doesn't fix it I will opt to ignore the error.

Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).

93 Jeep Grand Cherokee only revs when put in gear.


Three ways to check:
first: check if the shift cable is in position, cick down cable too..
-next: check if the torque converter is connected to the engine.
- remove the oil pan from the auto trans and check if the oil filter is in place. If you look to the right front side of the tranny, you see a lid with a coil spring in it. check if the spring is ok.
- if tranny is open, check for metal pieces or clutch material in the oil pan and the filter unit. If you find more than usual, replace the transmission.
