Question about 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee

1 Answer

I can't decide if it's stuck in part time 4WD.

I can't decide if it's stuck in "part time" 4WD. Grinds badly on turning. Can't get it into 2WD at all. Have been driving it in "full time" 4WD but didn't expect it to grind, as it does.. Suggestions please, and what to check. Many thanks - Beverley.

FYI you are ruining your transfer case when you hear grinding. That is a big no-no to use FT 4WD on the road. Get the car to a garage where they 1. Disconnect the front drive shaft, or 2. find the problem and fix it.

I have an 96 grand jeep cherokee and it is currently stuck in 4wd part time. When i shift it to N and put it in 2wd then shift to drive it does nothing but make a humming type noise. same thing happens w/...


first this is a shift on the fly system which means you shift it in and out of 4wd when moving and not stopped . 4 low yes stopped. second the diameter of your tires must be all the same plus or minus 1/8 inch. third if you drive in part time you will be causing binding when turning at all on dry pavement. this can break things like cv shafts and or the transfer case chain.

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!!!

4wd light keeps flashing on 2003 mitsubishi challenger


Hi Adstew,
the front diff has a sensor telling the control unit it when it is engaged (or not). It probably is, and it won't disengage. or the sensor is stuck. The selector lever tells the control unit you want 2WD but the sensor thinks the front axle is engaged. So it flashes.
When shifting to 2WD, normally the front axle will come free after a load change or a bit of turning the steering from side to side, but it sometimes happens that it gets stuck. You can find out:
lift the car free off ground, then select drive forward in 2WD. If the front wheels do not turn, then the sensor may be faulty or stuck. if the front wheels turn in 2WD mode, the diff is stuck and the sensor tells you so. Same or similar problem can happen with the center diff, by the way, on pajero/montero, etc.
regards
Winfried, the perfessa

Switching back 4WD to 2WD - 1998 Jeep Cherokee 4L Limited Petrol


With any 4WD like this, always move a few feet in the opposite direction when disengaging. If you were moving fwd in 4wd, switch to 2wd, back up a few feet, then go fwd.

2WD OR 4WD? To buy or ot to buy!


On the plus side, 2wd gets better gas mileage, is cheaper to operate over time (no 4x4 transfer case or any 4x4 components to wear out or maintain). With a good set of snow tires and weight in the back, winter traction should be ok. The mileage 63k, is good too. If u live in southern New England, as I do, u can probably get by w/out 4x4.
On the negative side, If you have a job that requires u to be there no matter what the weather, and u live where there's a lot of snow, then maybe 4x4 is really necessary. How many days over the last few winters did you REALLY need 4x4? Around here, I'd say maybe 6 days a year. Do you really need it for 6 days?(or however many for your area). It is great to have when u need it, but u have to justify the extra expense for occasional need.
On a personal note, my 1st truck was 2wd, and I hauled a lot of stuff to the dump when I purchased a run down house. After loading up to overflowing, I got stuck in the yard, and had to unload everything to get out. I swore I'd never own a 2wd truck again. But gas was about 45 cents a gallon then, and now, 2 4x4's later, I avoid driving the truck due to gas prices, (I do plow snow, haul firewood, lumber, etc, buts after all this blah blah blah, I probably have u more confused than ever! GOOD LUCK, and let me know what u decide. countrycurt0
