hey, im a usa sailor and i have also encountered this problem. how i fixed it.....,
you may be missing a little rod that attatches the handle from the cab to the crankcase. if you have that rod then see if the holes in the levers under the truck have little rubber grommets. these are what holds the rods in place.

if missing :
the rod......contact your nearest auto parts store preferably napa or autozone usually runs about thirty bucks at most

the rubber grommets.......usually any hardware store will have these for only four bucks

SOURCE: Transfer Case Lubricant for 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee

that would be 80w90 for the differentual, for the gearbox it is 75w90 this is for a manual gearbox, and no do not use auto fluid in a manual box, it is way way thinner and your box would possibly last 2 to 3 days before you would be purchasing a new one, hope this helps

SOURCE: transfer case oil change- 1999 Land Rover Discovery II

No need for a diagram, to drain the oil, there's a drain plug on the bottom of the transfer box, under the handbrake drum. To fill, the fill plug is about in line with the centre of the handbrake drum and to the left. I think both plugs are 1/2" square. Fill to overflow with Texaco Multi-Gear 75W/90R. Takes about 2L or so.

SOURCE: when installing a encoder motor do I need to shift

The shaft is a one way fit. You don't have to shift to neutral but you might have to turn the shaft coming out of the transfer case to line it up. New motors usually come in the 2 hi position.

How do i replace shift motor in 2005 durango


I doubt if the encoder motor is causing the transfer case to stay in low 4WD. It is more likely a problem inside the transfer case.

Did you ever think of having it diagnosed by a qualified repair shop ? Thier are aspects associated with this system you have no clue about. That's the first thing every one goes for , changing the switch . It flashes because codes are stored .

Transfer Case Shift Control Module
The transfer case shift control module uses the VIN information for calculations that are required for the different calibrations used based on axle ratio, transmission, tire size, and engine. The system does not know which calibration to use without this information.
The direct battery supply line (CKT 1640) provides the power to the module and motor circuitry.
Transfer Case Encoder Motor
The transfer case encoder motor consists of a permanent magnet (PM) DC motor and gear reduction assembly. It is located on the left hand side (drivers side) of the transfer case. When activated it turns the sector shaft of the transfer case (clockwise or counter clockwise) to shift the transfer case. The encoder motor is controlled with a pulse width modulated (PWM) circuit within the transfer case shift control module. This circuit consists of a driver on both the Motor A and Motor B circuits. The encoder motor is bi-directional to allow the motor to shift the transfer case from 2HI or 4HI to neutral and 4LO positions.

2005 GMC Yukon XL- Service 4 WD light comes on and the indicator light is not lit up nor can I change from 2WD to 4WD. It is push button selection with the option of Auto.


It is probably the encoder motor attached to the transfere case. look under the vehicle to see if there is signs of corrosion between the encoder motor and transfere case.

I turn at slow speeds and my transfer case sticks in awd a little bit. I changed the fluid with the correct autotrac II transfer case fluid twice, but it doesn't completely fix the problem.


ok let me tell you my problem 200 bravada acts like stuck 4wd when slow turns parking lot this is whati did and fixed it first changed fluid tract 2 / 3 times no change replaced module in right kick pnl no change replaced encoder motor no change replaced transfer case with a low mile case no change took old case apart to see what makes it tick i found out that a spring is in there to push the encoder motor back into 2wd and it was not doing its job knowing this is a common problem i took the spring out and streched it and shimed it till it pushed the encoder motor back to 2 wheel drive instaled that spring and shim into the used transfer case that was in the truck wala problem gone the spring is very easy to get at on the bottom of the transfer case is a nut remove it and the spring will come out this is only true till 2001 then the case changed on 02

AWD service light io on all wheel not working


Probably a bad transfer case encoder motor. Common problem on Bravadas. Also make sure your transfer case uses only "blue" GM Auto Trac II fluid. Flush once after driving a week with "blue" if you don't find "blue" fluid when origianlly checking. Just temporarily plugging a new encoder motor to harness should get the light to go out. Other less likely problem could be bad AWD control module or fuse.

Transfer Case - NVG 246-NP8 (Two Speed Automatic)
The transfer case shift control module uses the VIN information for calculations that are required for the different calibrations used based on axle ratio, transmission, tire size, and engine. The system does not know which calibration to use without this information.
Transfer Case Encoder Motor
The transfer case encoder motor consists of a permanent magnet (PM) DC motor and gear reduction assembly. It is located on the left hand side (drivers side) of the transfer case. When activated it turns the sector shaft of the transfer case (clockwise or counter clockwise) to shift the transfer case. The encoder motor is controlled with a pulse width modulated (PWM) circuit within the transfer case shift control module. This circuit consists of a driver on both the Motor Feed A and Motor Feed B circuits. The encoder motor is bi-directional to allow the motor to shift the transfer case from 2HI or 4HI to NEUTRAL and 4LO positions.
Transfer Case Encoder
The encoder is mounted to the transfer case encoder motor assembly and is replaced as an assembly. The encoder converts the sector shaft position (representing a mode or range) into electrical signals inputs to the transfer case shift control module. The module can detect what position the transfer case is in by monitoring the 4 encoder channels (P, A, B, and C). These inputs translates into AUTO 4WD, 2H, 4H, NEUTRAL, and 4L or in transition between gears.
Transfer Case Motor Lock
The transfer case motor lock is used to provide a 2H, 4H, and 4L lock-up feature. When the lock circuit is energized, the transfer case encoder motor is allowed to turn. When the transfer case is placed 2H, 4H, or 4L the motor lock circuit has no power provided to it and the lock is applied. This assures that the transfer case remains in the current gear position. When AUTO 4WD is selected the motor lock remains applied until an adaptive mode (torque is applied to the front propshaft) is required. During an adaptive mode the motor lock circuit is energized and the motor lock is released, enabling the encoder motor to turn and apply torque to the front propshaft.


SERVICE indicator (4WD/AWD) Lamp
The SERVICE indicator (4WD/AWD) lamp is an integral part of the cluster and cannot be serviced separately. This lamp is used to inform the driver of the vehicle of malfunctions within the automatic transfer case (ATC) system. The SERVICE indicator (4WD/AWD) lamp is controlled by the transfer case shift control module via a Class 2 message or by a Sevice Indicator Control Circuit.

The first thing to do before assuming it's a loose wire would be to have it checked for codes , auto zone , advance etc... can not check this codes .

If you know nothing about this , your best bet would be to take it to a qualified repair shop .
