Transfer case cable

Has anyone ran into the issue of the transfer case cable kinking near the shift lever? I bought a used 2013 JK and noticed that it would not shift out of 2wd. I removed the center console to reveal that the cable was kinked. When the lever is moved back and forth, the cable just folds like an accordion. I've seen several forums for bushing issues however, non for a kinked cable.

Side question: Is this cable covered under warranty?

Thank you for your input.

I haven't read anything about a kinked trans case cable. However, it should be under warranty as long as the Jeep is still less than 36 months old from its initial in-service date and has less than 36,000 miles.
