How do I get 97 jeep grand cherokee limited out of 4WD part time


sometimes because of non moving part inside of transfer case, elements stuck or gets slower to react against changes in mode. try to switch to another transfer mode in nuetral position and stopping. after switching to desired mode move few hundred meters.

if this does not help you may need to check linkage on transfer case.

I have 1997 Jeep Grand Cherokee V8 limited. There are different 4WD modes available. I was wondering which 4WD mode is the most fuel efficient and how do you engage the different 4WD modes?


4 wd part time is the most fuel efficient becuase it only engages when the tires start to spin. to engage the different 4wd modes pull up on the lever next to the shifter and you'll feel it engage into to its respected modes. recommended you engage the 4wd while moving slowly except for 4wd low full time which you need to put the shifter into neutral before you can engage it. remember 4 wd low full time is needed when none of the other modes work.

2001 Jeep Grand Cherokee Transfer lever moves butpart time won't engage. Full time will enage after abit. Is ther an electronic swicht some shere that needs to help with engagement?


Sometimes the motors on these electric shift transfer cases can become seized. You could try shifting it back and forth a bunch to see if it will free up, however you do run the risk of burning the motor out if it's getting stuck between gears. You could also take it off and try to clean it, sometimes that helps. Unfortunately a lot of the time it requires a new motor, which is not cheap. I make sure to use my shift buttons at least once a week to keep it moving freely.

99 jeep grand cherokee limited, have no 4wd. fluid was empty when i got truck filled case, still no 4wd. 242 quad trac. put vehicle on lift shifted into drive rear wheels only engage. any ideas?


If it was ever towed with the wheels on the ground (not dollied) then the transfer case is probably "burned out" and you will need to replace it. These models of jeeps are full time 4WD and MUST be dollied or towed on a carrier or rollback type truck. Unless they have manual locking hubs.

Jeep grand Cherokee stuck in 4 wheel drive.


Hello nicky...Check the transfer case linkage and see if it is working freely....the linkage could be hung between 2wd and 4wd. You may be able to keep working the linkage and free it up...the bushings may be worn and the linkage may need adjustment also. The transmission mounts will wear and keep it from moving freely. Try driving in reverse for a block or so...a lot of the wrangler and cherokee owners claim this works for them.
Good luck...i hope this helps, please rate me a fixya.

How do i engage 4wd in a 2003 jeep grand cherokee?


Jeep transfer cases are designed to be engaged when rolling from 3mph and up...low range should only be selected at low speed (around 3mph). Don't attempt to shift unless vehicle is moving...gears will not mesh properly. Try to find a manual to get the specifics of all variations of using the shift combinations available. (many times can be found in the gloveboxes of vehicles in scrapyards...just ask!

4WD transfer box


yes, it has 4 low. you might need to get the linkage adjusted. if that doesn't work, then there are pads on the shift forks insde the transfer case that might need replacement.

4x4 transimission clunks when engaged?


When engaging the 4WD system, you are pulling the lever on the Transfer Case right? Not the transmission, it's a different gearbox.
There were several versions of transfer cases that used both full and part-time 4 wheel drive.
From your description this sounds like a part-time transfer case.
Going with that, it is somewhat normal to hear and feel a mild clunk when engaging 4WD high range, especially if you are at a complete stand-still or under full throttle.
Try engaging 4WD High while slowly rolling at idle - no throttle. It should pull in fairly smoothly.
Once 4WD is engaged it will literally LOCK the front and rear axles together. So do not do it on hard dry pavement.
These older style 4WD systems need a little "give" especially when turning. The engineers assume you are not engaging 4WD unless you are in a somewhat slippery scenario.
Many CV joints, axles, U-Joints, differentials, and transfer cases are damaged and broken by folks who don't understand this.
Reading the owners manual should provide a clearer description of what you've got.
Bear in mind that when you come out of 4WD it may not completely release, again due to hard pavement binding up the axles. You can try this: backing up 10-25 feet in a straight line, or getting one set of wheels on the shoulder or in some gravel. That should allow it to release the transfer case and go back to everyday 2WD high.
I hope this helps.
:)

We bought a 1995 jeep grand cherokee orvis edition...the truck will not go into reverse...it makes a wierd grinding noise


Be sure that the truck is fully engaged in two wheel drive. It may have slipped out of gear on the transfer-case. Move the lever for 2 and 4 wheel drive back and forth a few times before shifting transmission.Good luck

while moving about 2-5 mph, shift your transmission into neutral but keep the vehicle rolling, then move the transfer case shift from 4HI to 2HI.
