4x4 wont disengage

The Orange light inside that says PART TIME wont go out, even after I put the shifter back in 2HI. Its drivin all stiff and cant get the light off? It is on a 96 XJ with 80,xxx miles on it.

don't worry, that just means it's only working part-time. It makes it like an all-wheel-drive Grand CHerokee... it was a little known about option on the XJ's w/ Command Trac.

and this guy is a fucking newbie who needs to have a new ass-hole torn into him :blackflipoff2: :blackrolleyes:

Yea, but the light wasnt on before I used 4x4. Doesnt drive right either. I had it in 4HI and not 4LO if that matters?

OH, you didn't say that... you need to put it in 4 low, drive in reverse for 10.5 feet. Then shift into 4 hi, drive forward for 10.5 feet. Then shift into 2 hi and drive in reverse for 11 feet. That will remove the orange light.

anyone else wanna play?

How to fix it:

1) Pull your XJ up to the edge of a cliff, top of a parking garage, anywhere with more than a 30 ft vertical drop, preferably on to sharp pointy spikes or cute cuddly rabbits.

2) While seated in the XJ, put t-case lever into Neutrail

3) Any member of the PBB will be MORE than happy to give you a nice little push

Thanks for the help. Ill try. I assume the distance are estimates? Not like Im gonna know if I back up 10.5 feet. Ill try to do close to what you say. I read the owner manual and it said to stop if i put in in Low. I did the 4hi-2hi just like in the manuel.

yeah, the numbers are estimates, but I wouldn't skimp on the distances. It should fix you up right away though...

gotta do all the work around here myself... :blackrolleyes:

apeters, I put in Low in the garage then backed up in the street at least 10ft. I put it in drive and was coasting downhill, when I put it in 4HI it grinded BAD, LOUD and the lever vibrated. So I stopped and put jeep in N, the shift to 4HI, then to 2HI. When I backed up it popped and the light went out!!!! Thanks! Seems like a lot of crap to go through to get from 4-2wd itd supposed to be automatic? You got an XJ too?

You already dug yourself into a hole with your new jeep thread, but you just seem to want more. You must have had some serious fun in that flat field. Your brakes are messed up with a '98? That must have been some crazy wheelin. Or did you just try what ItsaJeepThing95 ask you to do, and then tried to drive away?

I really hope you had permission to be on that farm feild, If you didn't you just made everyone that owns a 4x4 look like a jackass.

You are quicky becoming the poster child for birth control, free abortion and Toyota ownership. All in one moronic package.

I've got the same truck dude. First step. Leave. I'm not gonna be rude, but this isnt a place for newbs. This is a seriously hardcore rockcrawling board. If you seriously wanna learn something, shut up and utilize the search function. Post only when you need specific clarification, and assume that you will be shot on sight if you step outside of the newbie forum.
