Service transfer light comes on,Then the trans engages in 4 wheel drive low gear

1 Answer

What is the interface? a lever? often times...though it sounds incredible, things that are near the floor get disrupted by unruly floor mats...now if this is a "soft" start, where there isn't a mechanical lever we will have to have the computer looked at. If mechanical, you might have a transmission mount or transfer case mount who's rubber has given up the game.
