First post. Was out and about a little while ago and decided to put my 97 TJ in four wheel drive since it was snowing and I haven't used it for a while. Pulled into four high and nothing happened. No indicator light and didn't feel it shift. Any thoughts on whats wrong? Thanks.
Well you slid under it and rehook the linkage. Fix is free but maybe 25 mins of work well COLD work. Not to steal your thread but my light doesn't come on but it shifts into 4hi and 4lo. Not that i want it on but was just funny! It can stay off for that matter always!
OK, I guess I was asking this question because I tore my garage down and will not build my new one until spring. My repair options are cold snowing driveway or pay somebody, which seems like the thing to do at the time unless the job is real simple. Thanks guys!
ok umm best advice!! Instead of paying somebody go buy some carhart overalls insulated, then a nice warm insulated jacket then you have extremely warm gear for winter along with you get to fix your truck in the cold! I would offer to help you but I am in IL.
haha true- I am 22 and do construction so I work outside well most the time. Been doing it this last week, well it is not getting any warmer either!!!! I love my carharts tho!! Ehh it will probably be round 100 bucks with parts if you go to the dealer a smaller shop round 65-70.
Don't they make a plate that goes on to help with the linkage issue? I only had a problem with it either not going into 4WD or slipping out since I put the lift kit on. Anyone know what the plate is actually called? thanks
Not sure what the plate is called katahdinri, but I have a similar problem. Not to steal this thread but wheelin this weekend my rig kept popping out of four low,( I had to hold the handle the whole time, which made it annoying/challenging ) I know it has something to do with the lift, and have not had a chance to crawl underneath to see what's going on. Anyone know the solution to this problem?
