Not a common thing but yes they do give out.Get the fluid levels checked 1st and these diffs need friction modifier in the oil(limited-slip diff).Just make sure 1st it's not a rear wheel bearing.If you are sure it's the diff,they are quite easy to change.It's the pinion gear that usually goes.Hope this helps

When I put my 2005 jeep grand cherokee in reverse and turn at the same time it clunks in the rear end, the service 4 wheel drive light came on and the service electric brake system light came on


I have the same vehicle, with the same issue. I had put the car on a rack and lifted it to pin point the cause of the clunk when shifting from park to reverse or reverse to drive. I found that the front diff mounts were grenaded, meaning they needed to be replace bad. with these mounts being bad it was causing the front diff housing to slam the frame up and down when shifting from park or reverse to drive. this is pretty expensive to fix, your talking $160 in parts and $540 in labor. I also had the service 4WD warning display on my dash cluster, i had the code read. It came up as a bad solenoid in the rear diff. this is about $200 parts and labor to fix. Also, dont know how many miles are on your jeep but if you've ever sub-merged your axles under water or if your over 60,000 miles you need to replace your gear oil in the front diff, rear diff and transfer case. This is a little costly to have a mechanic do as well because you're supposed to use synthetic gear oil. For a shop to do it you're looking at $360.

Drive train noise


likely pinion bearing or carrier bearings. They howl, characteristically, and the howl changes frequency with speed. Do check the u-joints first, though.
