You also need to make sure you put the regular transmission lever in neutral too.

Did someone tell you not to move the shift lever or can you not physically move it?? If it's a GC, the lever is always in the forward position during normal use (shifts into 4x4 by itself when needed). Neutral is used for towing (if you break down) and low is only used in deep snow or mud, never above 15mph. If you cannot move the lever, chances are that it has rusted in that position. If so, spray the under car linkage with wd 40 or other good solvent and work the lever gently 'till it moves again.

2500 sierra HD 4wd is stuck in neutral. this is a manual shift, not electric. Had been working fine


Put main gears into 1st.
With a gentle foot on the clutch, you can hold pressure on the selector and slowly bring pedal up so you can 'feel' something moving with the stick. If it doesn't go in first go then 'rock the box' with clutch movement at that sweet spot where it just starts to engage (in and out) and it should drop in.

1997 chevy 2500 4wd new push button switch new transfer case motor will not go into 4 lo


Are putting the vehicle into 4H then shifting the trans into neutral then pushing the 4L button? If so there may be a controler behind the dash. I can't remember on a 97 for sure but I am almost certain there is a control module behind the dassh switch.

Jimmy 99 put the lo gear and try to put in back in 2 hi. and still remain in 4 lo ?


My lifted 97 Expedition does that every once in a while. Try putting the vehicle in neutral, or changing from low to high on loose soil or gravel, and switch from forward to reverse a few times. 4 low is only meant for extreme conditions, so you shouldn't be using it too often.

How do I turn on the 4 X 4 on my 1999 Ford Explorer or is it automatic? I don't have a manual. Is there some sort of button on the dashboard?


There should be a knob or selector on the dash usually located to left of the radio. When you put your vehicle in 4wd you can do this on the move at a sloe rate of speed but never try to put it into 4wd low on the move or it will hurt the system. To put the vehicle in 4wd Lo stop and put your transmission in neutral and the select 4wd Lo. Hope this helped you out, Roger

To shift from 2 wheel drive to 4 hi, I just need to put the car in nuetral correct?


If you just want to shift to 4 hi you do not have to go to neutral.You can shift while driving to 4 hi.When you shift to 4 lo then you have to be going very slow.The only time you shift the vehicle to neutral is if it gets stuck in 4 lo.That is why they call it shift on the fly.Hope this helps.Good luck.

Haven't used 4Lo for about 8 years and can't remember thew sequence to put it in 4Lo - is it gear in neutral then shift or is it keep moving and then put in 4 Lo ?


shift from 2wh to 4hi to neutral then 4lo all while in drive and moving slowly. The owners manual and repair books say you can actually damage the transfercase if the jeep is parked. You can go into 4hi at any driving speed, just not too fast!

2001 Dodge Durango stuck in 4 wheel-Low. Won't switch back to 2WD


Just to clarify, the "transmission" is not stuck in 4-Lo. It is the "transfer case" that is attached to the transmission that actually engages the 4-Hi and 4-Lo modes. To properly shift your vehicle into 4-Lo, you know that you have to shift the transmission into neutral and slow down to less than 5 mph. Once your vehicle slows down to this range, your can switch your transfer case into 4-Lo mode. Due to the inner workings of the transfer case, the actual shift into 4-Lo may take a few seconds to complete. This is normal and does not signify that there is an issue. All transfer cases that have 4-Lo mode will act this way regardless of the make or model. To make a long story short, to shift out of 4-Lo you must follow the same steps that you took to shift into 4-Lo, just in reverse order. Switch the transfer case to 4-Lo mode if it isn't already there. Slow down to less than 5 mph (your vehicle must be moving, though). Then, shift your car into 4-Hi or 2WD. Give your vehicle several seconds to complete the shift. The transfer case indicator light will flash until it is complete. When it does complete the shift into the new gear mode, you will most likely hear a "clunk" (the range sleeve inside the transfer case disengages from its mating spline) from under your car. Again, any transfer case with 4-Lo (regardless of make or model) will exhibit this same noise. This should help you get out of 4-Lo. It is good practice to shift your car into and out of 4-Lo at least a few times each year to keep all of the splines free of corrosion and build-up. Based on the age of your vehicle, your transfer case may also need a complete flush and some new transmission fluid. Hope this helps.
