Why would you leave it in 4wd all of the time? It's for snow and ice mainly. The best description will be in the owners manual.

I thought all Grands were constant 4wd.BUT.If you have the selector,and you are in the normal driving(e.g. suburbs or Hwy)It needs to be in 2wd.It will increase fuel eco. plus reduce tyre wear.If you put it in neutral,you wont go anywhere.Its for a power take off winch.(try it,you can,t hurt anything.and you won't have one)Don't know who told you all this but 2wd is fine unless you go offroad.Hope this helps

Having activation problems. How exactly do you activate the 4 wheel drive on a 99 Jeep Cherokee?


Just pull the control lever one notch rearward. first position is 2wd, next is "part time 4wd". after that is neutral (only used when your vehicle is being towed) and last is 4 low, only used when pulling heavy loads at low speeds on slippery surfaces. Best to engage 4wd while rolling at under 30mph. If dash light remains on after shifting back to 2wd, usually backing up about twenty feet or so will disengage it.
If doing what I said does not get you into 4wd, then you need to have someone qualified look at it to make sure the transfer case, front differential and both front axles are in good condition.

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.

I just bought a 2004 grand cherokee V8 for my son. It has 4wd but the stick slides easily between 4wd all the time, Neutral and I'm wondering if that means it's not working? The whole point of buying was...


Not sure what you mean by "4wd all the time, Neutral".
But I can tell you how it's supposed to operate.

The three modes are 2wd, 4wd high and 4wd low. When switching between 2wd and 4wd high it makes no difference whether the Jeep is moving or in neutral. The only condition that needs to be obseved when switching from 2 to 4 high is the speed of the Jeep. It should not be done above 45mph.
The switch from 4wd high to 4wd low is a different animal. The Jeep must be stopped and in neutral. Also you should be aware that it is not a pleasant sound or feel when moving from high to low so you should worry to much about the lowed junking sound.
At times it may even be necessary to put the lever back to the high position and move the Jeep a couple feet to align gears before it goes into low.

This is the reason for the relative ease when switching from 2wd to 4wd high.
There is an art to switching from 2wd to 4wd high then to 4wd low. Once your son becomes familiar with the Jeep and begins using the different modes it will become easier.
I would like to add one more piece of advice. After building Jeeps for over 25 years and owning several I have found that 8 out of 10 times that 4wd low is used, it's used incorrectly or not needed at all. It's a good idea to find someone who has experience with 4wd to give a bit of instruction on how it should be used. Especially in the mountains.
Let me know if you need any clarification on anything.
I hope this helps.

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.

2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd


I questioned the dealer about my 2005 because mine was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.

Noise when in 2WD- and a smell like hot rubber- More below


this is not an AWD car, that happened in 2004
so you are using part time 4wd totally wrong.?
part time needs ice under 1 or more tires, like old jeeps did.

never put additives in engine oil, that is super super bad idea.
change the oil, it has all that in the new oil, wow.
the owners manual told you how to use PT 4wd
and told you never use oil additives.
so did the oil maker tell you the same thing.
stop using SNAKE OIL, or lunch the still working good engine.

the hot rubber might be,fan belts slipping. (or victims)
i bet you have Part time system.
in 2004 this new system was added, (full time)


AWD , stay out of LOCK if you have this system. it too is PT in LOCK. mode.
