My 89 light is always on to,but its not in 4x4 mode,its a vacume problem.the shifter should be in 2h.to test if its stuck in 4x4 turn the wheels to the left or right all the way and try to move a little if it feels like its binding its in 4x4.if not you ok.

Broken wheel studs on a 1987 jeep wrangler


No need to replace the hub just the studs. The come in from the back and are splined to prevent the stud from turning with the nut. Remove the hub --drive out the broken studs and put the new ones in from the rear and drive them back in. Get the studs from the dealer spares or a good tyre retailer.

I have a 1987 jeep wrangler and it will not shift into 4 wheel dr


The front axle connects 4wd by vacuum. check the vacuum hoses that run to the actuator. Pay close attention to the vacuum hoses running underneath the battery as battery acid can eat thru those hose easily. Good Luck.

My 4-wheel light does not come on, when I engage the 4-wheel drive. Does this mean that my 4-wheel drive is not working?


the best way to tell if the four wheel drive is working is to engage the 4x4 try turning as sherp as you can and if it hops a little then you know its working

4 wheel drive doesnt work.


Has this Jeep been modified at all?
It sounds like the shifter cable was reinstalled backwards.
Specifically the 4-Low "Not Climbing Well". 4-Low should give you the best torque and hill climbing ability.
Do you feel any "Binding" in the steering wheel (difficult to turn)?
Remember a Jeep uses real driveshafts and differentials to give you 4WD - you cannot engage 4WD or 4-Low on dry hard surfaces. It needs a little bit of slip between the wheels for turns.
Check you're fluids too.

1987 Jeep YJ [Wrangler] so owner ship says''


Our Jeep Wrangler YJ's are equipped with a vacuum module on the front axle. It is used to engage the front axle when the transfercase is shifted into 4WD. Check the vacuum lines on the front axle to make sure they are connected. The passenger side axle shaft has a disconnect sleeve that is moved left and right by the vacuum.

1998 Jeep wrangler s/spot stuck in 4 wheel drive


This sounds like the linkage could have fallen or broken off. Have someone move the 4wd shifter while you look under the vehicle.
