My name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I noticed that your question had not received a response and thought I would see if you still need help with this.I apologize for the delay and I hope I can still assist you with this here.

The first thing that has to be done here unfortunately is to have the fault codes read out/checked with a fully compatible scan tool to see what codes are set.Once this is done any codes set then need diagnosed to then locate and repair this issue here.

This may be a fault with a component like the transfer case actuator or a speed sensor or differential actuator needing replaced.The codes do need to be read out to help locate which component is at fault then repaired from there.

If more help is needed, use the reply tab to continue our conversation. If no further assistance is needed, kindly rate my service,your 5 star rating is appreciated ( should be a link to click on here or above).You can rate at any time and we can continue to work on your question as this will not close out your question.Keep in mind in some cases it can be difficult to fully diagnose or help repair your vehicle without seeing it and I work on delivering the best possible answer from what I see to work with.

Thanks Pete
