Please help ! Nissan Pathfinder 2005 Stuck in 4lo for 4x4

Asked by Dec 29, 2015 at 10:25 PM about the 2005 Nissan Pathfinder SE 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi it snowed very bad here and we used the 4x4, I placed it in 4Lo and drove
with no problem.Now when I go to disengage the 4wd the knob to turn it on
won't react. And when I drive the vehicle it hesitates when I try to drive it and
the 4wd light stays on. Also when the truck ran normal it showed 4 tires on
the dash and the ones that were blacked out were being used. Now it doesn't
even show up and I cannot switch back to 2wd PLEASE HELP!!!

Sounds like the 4X4 servo motor maybe stuck, you can try lightly tapping on it while someone turns the switch to 2WD, this must be done on level ground with the trans in neutral and the brakes off, so make sure the wheels are blocked before getting under the rig. HTH
