Try slowly moving the vehicle in reverse and trying to shift back to 2 wd.....do not force.....shift fork damage could occur.....Try slowly moving the vehicle forward as well....Move the shifter firmly but don't force it.......Make sure the hub locks are in the free position too...........

My stepson also has a 99 grand cherokee and had the same problem they have a cable that connects the shifter to the transfer case. his problem was the cable broke. I changed it for him and works fine now but it's not easy to change so do not try to change it yourself unless you know what your doing.

Cant shift 1996 jeep cherokee into 4 wheel drive/shifter stuck


what aer tires touching? ice or dirt.?
if its not AWD "Quada-Trac"
then its part time 4wd
and is only for driving on ice or dirt
PT 4wd that is what Part time means.

see that here (down for week end)
https://www.jeepdied.com/

see the most common options there.
i cant guess what you bought.

to undo what you did,
get one tire on dirt or ice
and shift back to 2wd

or read your operators guide
good luck.....
i cant really help, can see your shifter
nor see what tires are rolling on.


ALL JEEP PART TIME SYSTEMS DO THIS,
WHEN DRIVERS DO NO READ THE OPERATORS GUIDE
IT'S NOT AWD! IF NOT.

THERE IS NO CENTER DIFFERENTIAL OR MAGIC CLUTCH

My 2005 jeep liberty is stuck in park


This is not intended to sound rude, but have tried depressing the brake as you attemp to shift? I am the guy that all my friends call for advice and believe me this would not be the first or the last time for this question in my lifetime.

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.

2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd


I questioned the dealer about my 2005 because mine was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.

I just bought a 2001 blazer 4.3 4wd and it was stuck in 4 low


It should tell you on the Shifter whether or not that you can Shift on the Fly. Check the Manual first if there is one in the Truck. Some Models had this and some Did not. Was an Extra from Factory Option.
