Don't know how to switch to 4WD

Hey so I'm new here and I know this doesn't have to do with interior but it wasn't letting me post this anywhere else. So, I have a 2005 jeep grand Cherokee & I'm trying to figure out how to turn the 4WD on...I don't have that switch thing next to my shifter. I saw that it has that tractor control button but that doesn't have to do with the 4wd right?? 😐

Tractor control button? Sorry, I never owned a WK. If an owner doesn't respond you can download an owners manual here...

Umm.. if you dont have 4 low.. then you probably have quadra-trac I. Im positive only the II have the 4 low option.

So if you have the 4x4 badge on the back then its awd and you have the Quadra-trac I. If you dont then well its a 4x2 and rwd sadly with no hope of ever being awd.

Re: Don't know how to switch to 4WD

The traction control defaults to always on, but you can semi-deactivate it. Pushing the button in will limit the amount of traction control, allowing the wheels to slip a little. Pushing the button in and holding it until you see the message on the dash will turn it off(great for mud) - until you push the button again, or turn the key off. The default position is always on, always AWD - the only options are to turn traction control off or to lock it in 4wheel low - assuming you have low range. Do you have a small silver lever present in the center console, located just below the transmission gear shift?

Re: Don't know how to switch to 4WD

So just to be sure that your jeep has four wheel drive, look under the jeep and see if there is a drive shaft going from the T-case (transfer case, which can divide the torque between rear and front wheels). If there is a drive shaft going to the front differential, then your jeep has four wheel drive. When it doesn´t have the small lever close to the shift lever, then it is indeed quadra-trac I and the four wheel drive is always on, dividing the torque 52% to the rear wheels and 48% to the front wheels.

Re: Don't know how to switch to 4WD

If your jeep is four wheel drive, then its in fact always working, no drivers input required.

Two easy options.

Look for the decal on the back (can be faked).

Write your VIN down, call any Jeep dealerships parts or service department and ask them to check for you. Will take you 5mins and is free. Can also have them check for other options (remote start, ect).

Re: Don't know how to switch to 4WD

What engine do you have? If you got the hemi you got QD II 4x4.

Re: Don't know how to switch to 4WD

Take a picture under your Jeep from the rear bumper looking towards the front of the car (getting as much of the underneath in the frame as you can) & post it. That should let us see if there is a transfer case or not. If there is one, and you have no silver "T" lever next to the shifter, then it's Quadra-Trac I (Full-time 4x4 with no 4-Low option). If there is no transfer case in the picture, then you do not have any kind of 4x4 capability.
