How do I shift into 2WD from 4WD in my 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee? It's the V8 Limited Edition Quadra-Drive model.

Asked by Nov 25, 2013 at 01:25 AM about the 1999 Jeep Grand Cherokee Limited

Question type: General

I'm assuming its very simple yet I
can't seem to shift the 4WD stick
from "4WD (all time)" to neutral
without it grinding horribly. The 4WD
shift stick has 3 options: 4WD (All
Time), Neutral and 4WD (Low).  Am I
overlooking a hidden button or
switch?!

step one - while driving your jeep slow down to idle speed (almost to a slow crawl forward) step two - place your transmission into neutral while the jeep is slowly moving forward. step three - pull the transfer case lever (4wd stick as you have called it) directly back towards you (pull hard and fast into the low position) once it is in 4 low you shouid simply see a light indicator on your dash indicating you are now in 4 low. Step four- simply put your transmission back into drive and you are ready to go. To get out of 4 low and back to All time 4wd just perform the same procedure keeping in mind each time you move the 4wd stick or lever do in a hard direct motion.

Further to last post - if you have a difficult time getting back into AWD, simply stop your jeep. Shut if off with the transmission in neutral. then push the 4wd lever hard into the AWD position. Place transmission back into park. Restart your jeep and place transmission into Drive and you should be back in AWD. Good luck hope this helps.
