Why would Service Four Wheel Drive light come on occasionally and not engage 4wheel drive when light is on?
If you have push button 4-Wheel Drive, it is recommended that you use it every once in a while, in order to keep gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up on moving parts. The mostly likeley (though not definite) reason would be that you let the 4-wheel drive unused for so long that corrosion has built up on the parts and the actuator that engages the 4-Wheel Drive doesn't have the power to engage it past the corrosion. You'll most likely need to take it in to be cleaned, or to have parts replaced. In the future, every month or so, engage 4-Wheel Drive and drive around in some mud, grass, sand, or any other loose ground for a bit, just to keep the parts moving and clean.

How do differential locks work?
when a diff is locked,it causes both axles to receive equal drive at same time. a diff that is not locked has drive 70% power to one axle therefore if for example the drive wheel is stuck in mud, it will spin while other whell does not drive. to lock diffs, you stop the wheel spinning, then engage diff lock. this then supplies power to both wheels enabling the dry wheel to drive you out of where you are stuck

Can the four wheel drive be changed while moving?
On my 1995 I can change from two wheel drive to 4x4 automatic/or back to two wheel drive when I'm moving. Ford warns not to switch to 4x4 auto when your back wheels are slipping. If I want to use 4x4 low, I have to come to a complete stop, hold my foot on the brake pedal, shift to neutral, then select 4x4 low and then put automatic transmission back in gear.

Is it OK to drive in 4 Wheel Drive all the time on pavement with a 2004 Jeep Liberty Limited?
Answer Its fine as long as you have and engage the "Full Time" 4 Wheel drive lever in your Jeep Liberty. Full Time 4 Wheel Drive can be used on any surface including pavement. Dont use the "Part Time" setting, as that is only for 4 Wheel Drive use on sand or snow. Using it on pavement can severely wear down your tires, reduce your gas mileage, and prematurely wear your 4 Wheel Drive components. Actually, I've heard the other way around. And according to the manual, you're not supposed to drive very fast in full time, while in part time you can go up to 45. If you want to do highway driving on the pavement, you're best to stick with two wheel drive, not to mention the extra gas four wheel drive burns. The manual says that you can't drive in 4 wheel high. Depending on what transmission you have, you either have 4 high, 4 low, and 2 wheel drive, or 4 high full, 4 high part, 4 low, and 2 wheel drive. 4 high full, is just that, full time. You can engage it up to 50mph. It doesn't wear anything since those components are already moving. 4 low is for off road, and slow conditions only.

What skids better rear wheel drive or Front Wheel drive?
Are you talking about "Drifting" ? purposely powering through turns, Or is your intention to skid to a stop? - Either will work, but you can Drift with a front wheel drive car while applying power to the drive wheels, and engaging the parking brake at the same time. Rear wheel drive can not be done while power is being applied.
