stuck in 4wd

Just got back from taking my 91 Wrangler into the woods and when I tried to shift into 2wd, it would shift, but the instrument panel still indicated that the Jeep was in 4wd. The only way I could convince the computer I was in 2wd was to diconnect the vaccum hose coming out of the axle. The transfer case appears to be shifting into 2wd (the Jeep drives like it is in 2wd with or without the vaccum lines connected). Another problem I'm having (hopefully they are related) is that 4wLo is grinding when it is put in gear. Anyone have any ideas on what this might be or has this happened to anyone else. The Jeep is a 4-banger with the 5-speed behind it.

Re: stuck in 4wd

as for the light.....if the t-case is still going into 2wd its not a big huge deal....did you get the jeep relly wet on your trip? it might have gotten some watter on the electrical connection...or maybe the wire got messed up on a stick or sometihng.....

as for the 4w-lo grinding.......remember that the 4low is not shift on the fly like 4high..... you need to be stopped or going really slow to engage it.
just make sure the shift into 4low is firm and purpose-full....none of that half assed shifting [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img]

hope it helps

Re: stuck in 4wd

The Jeep did get very wet and muddy while it was out, i'll try cleaning out some of the connection. As for 4LO, give me some credit, I'm stopping and shifting the same way I have done many times before. Thanks for your response.
