Anyone help! I just bought a 2006 commander Limited. Service 4whl drive came on and took it to the dealer. Mechanic said he thinks that the 4wd lever was engaged while driving. I pulled the transfer case out and took it to my tranny guy who cracked it and said it looked fine, while thinking it would need to be rebuilt and in the meantime I bought a new actuater at 320.00, Put it all back together and still Have a grinding noise when the vehicle is shifted from park to drive. I am stumped and so is my tranny guy. Any knowledge about this would be grately appreciated. Please note that when I put it all back together and started it with my foot on the brake the ABS was making alot of noise under the hood as well and dont know if the two are linked. Please help me out on this Thanks in Advance Rod
Manually put the transfer case in neutral and see if it still makes the noise when shifting throughout the gears. The owners manual expains how to properly shift it into neutral. I blew my transfer case a few weeks ago while off road and even when it was in neutral I was having major grinding. I replaced it with a used transfer case from a 2005 HEMI Jeep Geand Cherokee and everything has been fine since.
That ABS noise you were hearing. Was it a totally different noise then the original noise you were hearing when you thought something was wrong with the tcase?
