2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd

Just purchased, 130,00 miles. Transfer selector arm in 2wd, dash says ''Part Time'' and vehicle is in 4wd. Can tell by the noise after you reach about 30mph and higher. Part Time 4wd does not appear to be disengaging. If I put the lever in 4wd the Part Time light goes off.

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.

My 2002 Jeep Liberty had the same problem. I took the guard on the 4wd shifter off and then was able to shift it around enough so that it was not in Part-time 4wd. There was no noise associated with the light being on however.

I have a 93 jeep Cherokee, it will move in 4wh and in 4wl but will not go back into 2wd?


Hello guy
try posting what 4wd system you have,? first.
command trac or select track, (the latter is full time)
part time or the full time system,
we cant guess it....
read the operators guide first, if a part time system only
as i suspect, stop driving on dry pavement.
it's only for ice, or dirt. part time. part time is not a full time system.
Command-Trac
shifting to 4wd on dry (means no ice) pavement causes, drive line wind up! and the gears to lockup. (see steering get tight in turns?> and is dangerous to drive it like this , you, me and the box)
posted here 100s of times.

http://www.rubicon-trail.com/4WD101/driveline-bind.html


the non grand Cherokee. early

had these choices
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP231 Command-Trac, part-time only, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP231 has the following settings: 2HI, 4HI, N, 4LO
  • 1987-2001: New Process NP242 Selec-Trac, full-time or part-time, 2.72:1 ratio with low range
NP242 has the following settings: 2HI, 4 full-time, 4 part-time, N, 4LO


as you can see you need to first know, what NP box you have or
photo your shift lever for 4wd, an post it and we tell you.

more facts, on select trac. (totally unlike command trac)
Selec-Trac locking hub is used on 4WD Cherokee. Selec-Trac
utilizes a non-disconnect front axle. Engagement of 2WD or 4WD is
accomplished at transfer case by means of mechanical shift linkage.
System allows full or part time 4WD. Selec-Trac can be shifted into
2WD or 4WD modes from inside the vehicle at any speed.
unquote
next from the service manual,
4WD TO 2WD
1) Place mode select switch in 2WD position. Transfer case
should shift to 2WD and not allow shifting into 4WD or LO range. Axle
should shift after transfer case shifts.
2) To determine if front axle has completed a shift out of
4WD into 2WD, position mode select switch back to 4WD position while
operating vehicle at slow speed. If vehicle shifts into 2WD, axle will
ratchet. If shift is not completed, transfer case will shift into 4WD
and hissing sound will come from mode select switch.
end quote.

if unsure read the FSM book its free.
shows you both systems and how to diagnose it.

in the box, click Cherokee,,then click 1993, and behold.
the real deal.

I have a Jeep Liberty 2005, 60,000 miles on it.. Had to use part time 4 wheel drive to get out of sand last week.. went back into 2 wheel so I thought. Did the frontward/ backwards thing you need to


4L or 4H??????
is this Selectrac???? has 5 mode do say going from which mode to mode you did. and did so before or after leaving the sand.

drive it on sand,dirt gravel, ice, or grass
in 2wd and it will un wind
my guess is you wound it up. the drive line in PT 4wd.
did you read the operators guide carefully ?
this year is last year for free opr, guide. 2005
10 year range it is.
http://www.jeep.com/en/owners/manuals/

page 239?
tow 244
the Selectrac has FT 4wD. do you have that?
if not , you must get it to unwind.
do tell what drive line you have
what mode uses.
and when
and if the lamps changed correct before leaving sand.
or for sure, not in AWD

1995 Jeep Grand Cherokee with 292000 miles. Runs but will not drive in any gear. Selector will go into hear but it wont move. It can be pushed while in neutral. Was told transfer case was bad but even...


Could be either, a transmission problem or transfer case problem.
Someone will probably have to remove the transfer case to find out.
The torque converter, pump, valve body, or various parts in the transmission could have failed. The transfer case could be stuck between 2wd and 4wd or could have a broken gear.

Having activation problems. How exactly do you activate the 4 wheel drive on a 99 Jeep Cherokee?


Just pull the control lever one notch rearward. first position is 2wd, next is "part time 4wd". after that is neutral (only used when your vehicle is being towed) and last is 4 low, only used when pulling heavy loads at low speeds on slippery surfaces. Best to engage 4wd while rolling at under 30mph. If dash light remains on after shifting back to 2wd, usually backing up about twenty feet or so will disengage it.
If doing what I said does not get you into 4wd, then you need to have someone qualified look at it to make sure the transfer case, front differential and both front axles are in good condition.
