You should not be driving on hard surface in 4WD. You will destroy your drivetrain.Hi, my names Bryan, I just brought a 2001 jeep wrangler SE and was wondering if there is a why that when I put it in 4 wheel drive. To put it into full time not part time like it shows on the dash when it engages.?
Push in clutch, pull lever back into 4H, release clutch.I recently purchased a 2002 Jeep Wrangler X and love it. We just got some snow/ice in Atlanta and I am about to drive in it. I will use the 4wd but since my jeep did not come equipped with the owners manual would like to know (much like this thread) some basics to engage the 4wd. I am assuming to use clutch to engage when pulling on lever to engage. Any help is appreciated as I have a '94 model some time ago and pretty easy to engage and would assume easier for this newer model.
1. As indicated above (and I think you know), the TJ does not have a Full Time system.do not drive in partial or full time 4wd on dry surfaces for long periods of time.
You can also shift into or out of 4L while stationary, though you may feel more resistance in the shifter when you do so. In some situations, you may get to neutral but then the shifter just will not go into 4L; if this happens, turn off the engine to complete the shift, then restart the Jeep and continue on your way.you mention to go from 4H to 4L while 2-3mph....what are the impacts if you put directly in 4L when starting up?
As I just mentioned, you cannot shift out of 4L at any speed over ~ 3 MPH. However, you can shift freely between 2WD and 4HI at any speed up to 55 MPH. You don't even need to press the clutch, at least not if you're traveling in a straight line. Just lift off the throttle, shove the lever, observe the indicator light to make sure it comes on or goes off (depending what you're doing), then get back on the gas. Easy.Also, can you go out of 4H or 4L while driving as I note posts indicating issue when 4L is engaged on dry roads as some roads are dry for a strecth before some more icy roads come up? thanks again!
Yep... the reason for clutching is mainly to ensure the wheels are spinning at the same speed, but clutching isn't necessary provided you just let off the gas and ensure you have no wheel spin. If you have wheel spin, it may grind like a s.o.b.You can go from 2h to 4h without pushing in the clutch. You can go to 2h from 4h without pushing in the clutch too. Just don't be spinning the rear tires when trying to engage the 4 wheel drive.
so the 4wd bulb is out.No it does not I just did it and all the lights came on exept those. Also I see that the setbelt comes on. ( is there a sensor that I can fix for the seatbelt light to come on and off when ever u use the belt)?
