Question about Dodge Ram 2500

1 Answer

I have a 2003 dodge 2500 4X4 with manual transfer case. The lever that changes from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive fell off. The 4X4 indicator light is NOT ON. Can I drive it till I can replace the lever? I found the lever in my drive way. Any advice will be helpful. Thanks

    Thanks, Would the indicator light be on if it is in 4 wheel drive even if the lever is not on?

    Very helpful. I had the truck hooked to a trailer to leave when I discovered this problem. I feel much better now. Thanks

Yes you can drive the truck with out the lever in place. You just willl not be able to change it to 3 wheel drive if you need to. You will not have any problems though if you drive the truck that way.

    If the truck is in 4x4 mode you will have the light on. If the lever is missing like it is now and it was in 4x4 mode the light still would be on saying that you are in 4x4 mode.

The 4 wheel low light is on but its not in 4 wheel drive but the trans will not change to overdrive


Are you sure it's not in 4 wheel or do you mean that it's just not switched to 4 wheel? Sounds like a bad indicator switch in the transfer case which is indicating 4 wheel low to the ecu which might not allow overdrive due to speed constraints of the 4 wheel low system.

How do I turn 4wd on?


    • 1 Start your Dodge truck's engine.
    • 2 Turn the electronic transfer case from "2WD" to "4WD Lock" to engage the high range 4WD, if the dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" to "4H." The electronic transfer case is located on the instrument panel and is marked with "2WD," "4WD Lock" and 4WD Low." The lever-equipped transfer case is located to the right of your leg and is marked with "2H," "4H" and "4L."
    • 3 Shift the transmission into "Neutral" while the vehicle is either stopped or rolling at 2 to 3 mph to begin engaging in the low range 4WD. Turn the electronic transfer case to "4WD Low," if the Dodge truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" or "4H" to "4L."
    Tips & Warnings
    • Indicator lights will come on and alert you that your vehicle is in either the high or low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in the low range of 4WD drive if the transmission is in gear; you must shift to "Neutral" first.
    • Many Dodge trucks allow you to shift from 2-wheel drive to the high range of 4WD at up to 55 mph--consult your truck's manual to ensure that this is possible. Do not exceed 55 mph while engaged in the high range of 4WD. Do not exceed 25 mph while engaged in the low range of 4WD.
    • Do not engage in 4WD unless you are on slipper or rocky roads.

Change clutch


Sounds like transfer case issue if 4 wheel drive works and 2 wd does not. Clutch slippage would be worse in 4 wheel drive more than 2 wheel drive, more to push.

How do you use 4WD on a 1999 dodge durango?


there are 2 systems.
one is a part time system only.the 4x4 locks and is for ice mud and snow.Driving full time will damage the transfer case.The other system is a full time system and the selector says 2wd,4wd part time ,4wd full time and 4 lo. if in full time,it can be driven all the time even on dry roads.The full time is really an all wheel drive system.
the 4low is a very low gear and the main shifter has to be put in neutral and then the transfer case put in 4 low.attempting to put it in 4 low while in "drive" will make a gear grinding noise.
getting out of 4 low is the opposite.shifter to neutral and then put it in 2wd and then in drive.The newer durango has an electronic transfer case with a dial on the dash.The 2002 was available with 2wd,4wd,awd and 4 lo on a switch.The 1999 has the lever on the floor .

THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR IS NOT WORKING TO INGAGE 4 WHEEL DRIVE. CHECK WITH DOOR OPEN WHEN YOU PUSH 4 WHEEL SWITCH YOU SHOULD HEAR MOTOR INGAGE 4 WHEEL DRIVE. IF YOU HEAR MOTOR BUT STILL NO 4 WHEEL DRIVE THE GEAR ON MOTOR COULD BE DAMAGED. REPLACE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR.

How to activate 4wd hi/low on 2000 dodge durango slt


You need to get under the suv, there is a linkage under there that has 2 grommets. They dry rot and then fall out. Once that has happened the 2 pins that hold it together give way and the link is broken. If all you need are those 4 parts its $12 at the dealer. If you also need the adjustable metal linkage that joins the shifter to the transfer case you will have to order that too, sometimes it falls off when one end gets loose. It will swing around and hit the drive shaft and get yanked off. If you need more detail let me know.
