stuck in 4low?

Jeep was stuck on icy driveway during the blizzard of the year, tried in 4low to break free.

Driving the next day (a block drive at 10 mph), traction control was off, could not turn on. Odometer display ESCOFF. 4wd icon flashing. Moving 2Ed/4wd/4low switch no change. Half hour later, restarted vehicle, diff select switch seemed to function, ESCOFF still displayed.

Driving today, normal commute, selector switch in 2wd, neither the 4x4 or 4low indicators were flashing OR solid. Vehicle felt like there was a lot of resistance. Slowed to 20mph, activated hill descent control, it was operational. Jeep was in 4low with switch in 2wd and no visual indicator. I backed up, placed hear selector to neutral, then ran through 2wd to 4low and back. Into drive, 4low disengaged and traction control again functional.

What happened! I am a 4x4 rookie - this is definitely a different experience than my fulltime AWD Explorer.

You probably never took it out of 4low properly when you used it the first time.

if you do exactly what it say in the owner book you should have no problem. 1. break 2. neutral position 3. set your selector to 4low 4. wait (up to 10 sec.) till you see the ESCOFF and the 4low light stop blinking 5. drive position 6. enjoy pure power! and to disengage step 1. 2. are the same 3.set to 2wd or 4wd 4. wait till all the light turn off and that's it!
