My 03 H2 got stuck in low 4 lock, tried everything the manual suggested, it would act like it was trying to switch to another mode but would default to 4 low lock. Nursed it home and disconected the battery leads, both positive and negative and held them together for 30 seconds, reconnected the battery and started it up and voila, back in hi 4 normal driving mode.
