96 ZJ Orvis QTrac No Low Range ?

I recently purchased a '96 ZJ Orivs edition w/67K original miles and very well maintained. Completely stock w/V-8 and Quadra-Trac. Just changed engine oil, transmission / transfer case over to AMSOIL synthetics. Planning to change front and rear diffs lubricants as well.

Here is my issue regarding transfer case low range. I place shift lever into Low Range and it appears that it is not shifting into 4WD Low Mode. How can I test this? The indicator lights on the display monitor are illuminated but i don't think it is in low range.

Help me out!

Thanks!

Flame!

Does it go to neutral or stay it gear? Low gear is definitely different when you press gas for even once.

In neutral = you need to check the linkage below and adjust it so the lever "catches" enough.
In high = probably the linkage below is completely broken or something has gone loose.

Thanks for getting back to me!….I have several 4wd trucks that when engaged in "low"…you definitely know it but I have not been under this vehicle as my mechanic is the one who changed the oils but I suspected broken or "loose" linkage. Looks like it's time to get it back on the lift and check things out as the TC appears to be only operating in "HI" range.
