Hello, my name is ***** ***** I am a professional here at Just Answer. I have noticed that your question was not getting 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 problem you are having with the 4X4 being stuck in 4WD can be caused by any of the following.

  • 2WD/4WD Detection Switch
  • Transfer Case Motor

    In order to determine if in fact that is the case you are going to need to do some testing. See the steps in the link below, copy and paste the link to your browser to open and view them.
