Low Range wont engage

I have a 2000 model and I put it in neutral and switch over to low range,
and nothing?


it goes into high range (and even stays there where I move it on to low)

any tips Chaps - it is very much likely me being an arse, but Ive read the
manual 50 times and done everything to the letter



Really grateful for any help


John

Re: Low Range wont engage

Did you press down the brake pedal?

Giving up the right to arms is a mistake a free people get to make only
once. I will not make that mistake.

This could be a lot of things (transfer case shift motor, 4wd module,
or one of several sensors). Best to get the codes read to see where it
is. I am guessing it is the module or one of the sensors feeding it,
but the module is big bucks and the sensors are not.

Re: Low Range wont engage

Than check your shift motor, that causes many problems. Many just don't
know the shifter has to be in neutral and the brake needs to be applied
for 4 wheel low to engage
