this switch does not switch the vehicle from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Grand cherokee have a manual shifter for that. The 4x4 switch is on top of the transfer case and tells the driver information display what 4 wheel drive mode the Jeep is in. ex..if you have selectrac, in 2 wheel the rear wheels on the display will light up, in 4 wheel all 4 wheels will light up, in 4 wheel low it will have the word low lit up in yellow. This is the only purpose for this switch and a bad one will not affect the functioning of the 4 wheel drive. Check out Rockauto.com and a new one can be purchased for about 35 dollars. If you call the dealership and ask for a 4 wheel drive switch, they will have no clue what you are talking about. The actual name is " 4WD indicator light switch"

Disconnect negative battery cable, remove upper and lower covers (three screws); remove the ignition switch mounting screws.
Pull switch away from the column and remove the connectos from the ignition switch.
Also I suggest check the 93ZJ-Secc-8D-Ignition-Systems for more details and graphics.
I hope helps with this (remember rated this help) Good luck.

Hey there, The driver info center in the 93 grand cherokee's is notorious for this message. This switch is on the transfer case and its only purpose is to tell that display what 4 wheel drive mode you are in (eg. 2 wheel, 4 wheel high, 4 wheel low, etc.) This can mean the switch bad but is USUALLY cause by a short in the display module itself. This will not affect anything on your Jeep. It is merely for driver information only. This is a very common problem and if you have a 93 in which the display is working at all your are lucky. They are very bad about going completely out over time.

I just fixed the same problem with my own GC Limited - and it WAS a
dealer part (in my case). In order to get the correct switch you need
to determine what type of transfer case you have. You can do this by
crawling under the vehicle near the middle and look for a small round
metal tag mounted on the back side of the transfer case. Once you have
that number (new process type 231, 242, 249...) you can order the
If your local jeep dealer is of a friendly sort you may even be able to avoid all the crawling around and just tell the parts manager your VIN# and he will be able to tell you what type transfer case you have - provided that it is the factory installed original.
According to the mechanic who works on my 93 Jeep it's one of three things:
1) Corrosion on the connector to the switch (which is located on top of the transfer case).
2) A bad switch. Part cost about $22.00, or
3) A bad console display. he says they have had a fair number of console display units fail. That one runs about $240.
My Jeep display it only once in a while. I have checked the connections and they are fine so the switch replacement is next. If that doesn't fix it I will opt to ignore the error.
Hope this helped (remember comment and rated this).
