Jeep Grand Cherokee will back up about 1 1/2 inches and then abruptly stops like brake is sticking.

Asked by Aug 25, 2016 at 08:58 PM about the 2005 Jeep Grand Cherokee Laredo 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Checked brakes and they are fine.  No fluid leaks anywhere.  If you attempt to
move after in catches, it then makes a grinding noise.  I can then move it
forward a little and it again stops and if I try to continue going forward a little, it
makes the grinding noise again.  No burning smell or smoking coming from
anywhere either.  Any ideas anyone?

Have you tried putting it in AWD LO and see if it moves then? I'm thinking a transfer case problem.

My husband is out messing with it now, I'll have him try this. Thank You!

It also could be the front or more likely the rear differential. Take a look at the fluid, looking for pieces of metal. Also check the fluid in the transfer case.
