Did you try selecting out of low when the transmission in Neutral .

Next try reversing a few meters to see if it disengages.

Do you have the use of a diagnostic scan tool with ABS and 4WD .

I did this when i notice that the truck LOW light was flashing.No diagnostic tool. The engine sounds fine. I have taken the truck to the dealer several times about the same issue. They don't see anything wrong. This time, I am unable to get it out by placing it in reverse.

4WD LOCK to 4WD LOW or 4WD LOW to 4WD
LOCK

NOTE: When shifting into or out of 4WD LOW, some
gear noise may be heard. This noise is normal and is not
detrimental to the vehicle or occupants.
Shifting can be performed with the vehicle rolling 2-3
mph (3-5 km/h) or completely stopped. USE EITHER OF
THE FOLLOWING PROCEDURES:
Preferred Procedure
1. With engine RUNNING, slow vehicle to 2-3 mph (3-5
km/h).
2. Shift the Transmission into NEUTRAL (depress clutch
on manual transmissions).
3. While still rolling, rotate the transfer case control
switch to the desired position.
4. After the desired position indicator light is ON (not
flashing), shift transmission back into gear (release clutch
on manual transmissions).
Alternate Procedure
1. Bring the vehicle to complete stop.
2. With the key ON and the engine either OFF or
RUNNING, shift the transmission into NEUTRAL (depress
clutch on manual transmissions).
3. Rotate the transfer case control switch to the desired
position.
4. After the desired position indicator light is ON (not
flashing), shift transmission back into gear (release clutch
on manual transmissions).
NOTE: If steps 1 or 2 of either the Preferred or Alternate
Procedure are not satisfied prior to attempting the shift or
if they no longer are being met while the shift attempt is
in process, then the indicator light will flash and the
current transfer case position will be maintained. To retry
the selection, turn the control **** back to the current
position, wait five (5) seconds, and retry shift.

NOTE:

The ignition key must be ON for a shift to take
place and for the position indicator lights to be operable.
If the key is not ON then the shift will not take place and
no position indicator lights will be on or flashing.

it did not work
Dodge Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 3 months ago

Okay you will need to get hooked up to a diagnostic scan tool and check for codes

and if no codes check the sensors and activate them .may have a problem with the transfer case position sensor .

A diagnostic scan tool will be needed to test and confirm this .

The shop got it out. Now the low light is back flashing again.Why do you think the low light flashes all the time.
Dodge Mechanic: Greg, Technician replied 3 months ago

Need to get malfunction codes and repair otherwise you are going to have this problem

all the time.

Could be the sensor failure as said above .
