Durango AWD


The vehicle is always in AWD and that cannot be altered . There is a 3rd diff in the gear box that allows independent operation of the front and rear wheels to prevent drive line wind up . When you select 4WD you lock up that 3rd diff so that both front and rear axles have to turn. This results in drive line torque wind up so the vehicle must not be driven in this mode on hard surfaces as there is no means for the wheels to slip and relieve the torque wind up . To loose the wind up reverse for several yards and any actuators that are trying to move will be able to or drive on slippery surfaces to allow the wheels to slip

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 .

You can shift into and out of 4 high at low speeds, to get into and out of 4wd low you will have to stop and go into park.

How to tow a 2003 5.7 liter dodge durango


i am glad you asked
thats i the problem with the electronic select FWD system
when towing a FWD you should put both selectors in neutral this frees the transfer case and the drive shafts
how ever with the electronic system i dont know if it stays in neutral when the car is disconnected from the battery.
so you can make some tryles
  1. put the car in neutral in both selectors "gear and FWD" while the car is running when all the warning bell and stuff have gone off turn off the car
  2. now see if the car can be pushed or towed while the battery is connected
  3. now disconnect the battery and follow step 2
  4. if this works then all is well
i know when towing a FWD car u do need to put the transfer case in neutral to prevent damage
if you have the owners manual check under towing
if you don't, contact your local dealer and see what they say
hope this helps
