My 2005 jeep gr Cherokee with a 231re rear differential feels like it is dragging the wheels sideways when turning. Help. could it be the e solenoid?

not sure what that means.? not at all.
Grand Cherokee, WK , 2005
2wd or 4? must be 4 cause 231 is NP231 transfer case and not a rear end (RE?) axle name. or is 231 a typo?????????
so are you driving in 4wd, why not tell that? or 2wd.????????
if yes, then what are tires touching,
dry pavement?
or off road.?
I cant guess roads, yet, no clairvoyance , upgrade here ,yet...
the WK runs a NV140 or , NV245 transfer case (both Full time)
so how do you find one with NP231????
the rear of the transfer case has tag and clearly tell you what is there, did look first.

if in 4wd, are you using LOCK mode, or Part time mode.
or 4wd LOW, do not use low... unless you LEARN how. and where.
if yes, the car must be on ice or offroad, never ever on dry pavement unless you select FULL TIME MODEs.
the operators guide is clear on that, read it yet?>

on my WK the front axle is C200
and rear is C213, c213r has DIFFERENTIAL-VARI-LOK
no 231s used.

are you asking a VARI-lok question.
read page Chatter 3 page 204 on this, tells you how to test this.
the axle has a tag that will ID it as, C213R, if opted day 1.

What tyre pressure should i run in a caravan tandem axle 235 75 r15

tire pressures are related to the load being carried and the ply rating on the tire
tandem axle -15" wheels should be minimum 6 or 8 ply rating as the van will be in the vicinity of 6 meters long and weigh around 2.5 tons
the tire pressures should be around 40 psi
talk with a tire retailer and check the compliance plate on the van for the tires that should be in use

Stuck in 4WD Low. Can roll in reverse but not forward in drive like I have my foot on the brake

what 4wd drive system option do you have.
command TRAC OR SELECT TRAC???????????

no photos of shifter so can cant be savvy.
if you have the part time system, and drIving on dry pavement,
stop doing that.
stuck in 4LO is worse. why are you in LOW,
the operators guide lost?
free to get and read here

stay off dry non icy pavement. (axles are locked together then)
start reading on page 333
the pages are for both transaxle systems.
ive no idea at all what you have there, or what you are attempting
nor if on ice or dirt.
part time, is only for dirt or ice. never on dry pavement ever.
select track is ok, on pavement but never in LOW.

read how not to use LOW.

2004 isuzu rodeo check 4wd light

post a real question.?
is this just light bulb question, or 4wd is INOP or just what.
are you using 4wd, or driving in dirt. is car on dirt or pavement.
(the lamp does not turn on by self)

your car is PT (part time system)
so that means its only for iced roads or off road (dirt)
or it will do bad things....
first off if driving on dry pavement leave the 4wd off.
did you turn it on??????????????
ah, nice the rear axle is Lim. slip. axle. nice.
a true 3 wheel car, with 4th wheel if one dont slip up front.

4 wheel drive will not switch from 4 high 4x4 to 2 wheel drive

on dirt? off road or on the road (pavement)

on ice?

do say what the tires are touching. we cant see you drive.

this car has parttime 4wd, its not AWD nor full time 4wd.

sorry, its PT. and the rules for PT always apply.

Part time is not for dry ice free pavement, at all.

if you do this, it winds up the drive line and causes the gears to lock. and worse.

the lost operators guide explained all that.

and needs to back up to unlock the front axle locks.

one more pain.

4WD S model, which used manual hubs, get out and turn dial.

so if doing all this wrong, on dry ice free pavement???

move car to shoulder that has dirt ./sand or gravel on 1 or 2 right wheels, then shift out of 4wd to 2H

or damage the transfer case you will.

like this guy did.

turn steering only slightly off center to get to curb, or it gets worse.

symptoms of bad drivers.....using 4wd, PT.

steers gard

funny sounds (of death)

gears lock up in transfer case or even in the manual trans.

or far worse.

How do i check the front axle vacuum selonoid on a 2002 jeep wrangler

02 , just sold mine, best car ever. had, of many.

how do you know that.?

and what are the tires, touching, (dirt, snow,ice, grass , pavement)


this car has part time 4wd, it is not AWD

its not a Grand cheerokee with AWD.

engaging 4wd on ice free pavement is wrong.

and my fsm states.

read the operators guide in the glove box, it will say....

"2WD is intended to be driven on normal street and highway conditions, such as HARD surfaced roads."


"4H & 4L positions are intended for loose slippery road surfaces only and not intended for normal driving" (They assume paved streets are normal.)

"Driving in 4H or 4L positions on hard surfaces roads, will cause, increased tire wear, and damage to the drive line components."

Unqual tire sizes, will do the same damage. "circumference mismatched"

Last: "do not attmpet to make a shift, while only the front or rear wheels are spinning" No transfer case synchronizer exists and damage will result."
(kill the gear dogs, you will)

New hubs installed and transfer case will not shift now?

is car stock?
are you on dirt? offroad, or on ice
Part time 4wd dont work on pavement, only iced up pavement or dirt.
so where are tires touching that be the first question.
then what is a hub. my cherokee locks the axles in the center of the axle , never via a hub. (i own 5 jeeps, and 2 now, both types)
and retired mech.

did you read this yet.
see the reason for 4wd shift or wind up failures yet.
see the xfr case crack and why?
this car is NOT AWD,

Wont go in four wheel drive

what does won't mean?
  1. The lamp don't come on. (the lamp can be out)
  2. actual 4wd fails , that is, the tires don't turn, up front,under power, id bet you didnt check? actual 4wd actions?

which one.? which 4wd do you have.? and what mode did you select.?

on Part time, you cant drive on dry pavement in PT 4WD.
got Part time? I think not, but??? dont know for sure....
i bet you have select track (no GRAND in title)
Selec-Trac offers full-time all wheel drive in addition to the part-time 4WD of Command-Trac. Full-Time all wheel drive has the ability for the front and rear axles to rotate at different speeds, making driving on dry and wet surfaces possible year-round without shifting back to 2WD again. It still has the ability to lock the front and rear axles.
end quote

do not use COMMAND-trac on dry pavement. its for ice or offroad only.

Major cirsuit breaker blew and partial loss of power in residential home bus port still good? Looks good. replaced breaker and working again..will this last?

1) If busbar looks good it probably is good.
Usually when bus is bad, it has burned appearance, and looks like it is ready to crumble or is crumbling.

2) Problem with bad busbar, we sometimes add subpanel next to main box.
Buy subpanel box Home center or electric supply.
Square-D subpanel shown on following page came from electric supply.

3) You can also add tandem breaker to main box.
Tandem breaker fits over one bus finger, but is actually two separate breakers.
Then double-up two lightly used circuits so you have room to move breakers around.
See image showing tandem.
