    isnt there a way to disengage the 4x4 and go back to normal mode of all wheel drive I recall this happening once before, and it reguired pressing buttons and turning off the car etc.....

    I cant disengage the 4x4, I did back up while using the 4x4, i just need it to go back in to the all whelle drive mode. I had this happen once before and there was a series of steps to get the all whell drive back on.

Hi


Thanks for using FixYa. If you simply want to disengage it then m
ost of the time putting it back in 2 wheel drive and backing up about 10-20 feet is required to get it out of 4x4. Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks
Rylee

When you released the 4x4 did you back up for about 15 feet?

Hello rmontcerisie.
When I see this issue it is usually a problem with the encoder/transfer case motor assembly. The internal connections are prone to failure and the motor loses track of it's position.
In rare occasions the push button switch can fail as well but not nearly as common.
Depends on your handyman skill levels whether you are capable of doing the repair. To diagnose the problem will take some wiring diagrams and a manual would also be a recommended item. The motor can be tricky to remove and install.
If you need more help with this let me know.

My 4x4 fuse keeps blowing. I put in a new one, shift into 4 wheel drive and it blows. Is it a short or could my 4 wheel drive be out. It is a 1994 chevy suburan.


Try this,on the front axle there is an actuator for the 4x4,unplug it and try to engage 4x4 with it unplugged,if the fuse doesn't blow,actuator is bad.
Also look at the wires going to the actuator they get damaged from brush and things.

How can i use the 4 x 4 in my 2000 grand cherokee laredo (6 cyl) i dont have the owners manual and i dont know how to use my 4x4 on snow or something like that


With the Jeep in park, move the left shifter to 4 wheel drive. Proceed to put right shifter into drive, proceed to drive. Only use 4wheel drive when neccessary...ie...snow, mud, use 4 wheel lo in steep incline or when really bogged down.

Hope this helps

Check the grounding wires behind the front left tire. GM put the wiring directly behind the tire and there is a grounding bolt in the body. This usually gets corroded and nothing in the 4x4 system will work. Clean this up and apply some RTV Gasket sealer to help weather - proof it.

you may have a broken transfer box or a damaged locking hub on the wheels that arent used in 4x4 mode, i.e. if your car is FWD unless its in 4-low, check the rear locking hubs for failure. Other wise it sounds like a transmission fault in the aforementioned transfer box or differential.
