This is usually due to a binding that happens when the rear wheels have turned at a different speed than the front due to turning left or right. the shift lever could be bent or dirty needing cleaning and lube, or you could have low fluid level in your T-Case. If you have the vacume type shifter in your front end, a line may have a leak or fallen off. The vacume unit on your front end if you have one may be bad and need either cleaning or replacement. I hope this gives you a place to start looking.
The 2001 Rubicon is FULL time 4x4 from factory. Unless you installed a 2x4/4x4 select then it should always be in 4wheel drive.
2002 ranger wont go in 4wheel
check vaccum lines on differential or by shift linkage
If I remember right this a vaccume system , using a servo and a cable to enguage the front axle. check for leaky servo Rick ASE L-1 Master TransMichigan.com
Bulb in dash or sensor at t-case.
why wont the light come on the 4x4 drive
Possible causes include a blown fuse(s) or a failed radio.
The 2002 Jeep Wrangler dashboard light fuse is located in the fuse box. The fuse box is located in the engine compartment.
I've had this problem with my 2001 Jeep Cherokee. The light in the dash burned out, and $5 later, I had a new 4x4 lamp bulb, problem solved. So as long as you can hear your four wheel drive being engaged and running, it's probably just the burned out bulb.
if you can hear your transfer case kick in and your front wheels arnt kickin in theres a electronic actuater in the front end that always goes its ownly like 50-60 bucks
There's an actuator in the front axle assembly and another in the transfer case. Test them to see if they're working. Usually it's the one in the front axle that goes. You can get one at a auto parts store.
get a new engine DUMMY!
The headlamps on a 92 Jeep Cherokee wont turn off if the switch has failed. The switch must be replaced to restore functionality.
The relay has probably failed. It is located under the passenger headlight, under the bumper cover.
The cable/linkage between the shift lever and transmission is likely broken or disconnected
Are you more interested in the lights going on or the car driving? Just curious.
NOT ALWAYS, but sometimes there is a chain inside the transfer case that will not allow it to come out of 4Wheel low or high for that matter. Just fixed the exact problem, paid $75 for a transfer case off of craigslist and it is perfect now. But just a note, ours made a clunking noise while driving which is how we knew it was a problem with that chain drive inside the transfer case.
the four wheel drive is opperated by vacuum that's probably where your problem is
No your car just wont come out of park.
you keep ducks out of the drive way by loading a 12ga and shoot one....they wont come back
Maybe you need a hard drive for it. :)
If your jeep wont reverse than you have something wrong with your transmission. To get this fixed it can cost anywhere from $200- $1000 dollars.
it wont come out
Not much you can do with it. Drive it if it will run or call a wrecker compnay to come get it if it wont run.
you flooded it
