No response from 4 low lever

I just moved from Germany to the Azores along with my 2005 WK HEMI QDII, Just messing around the other day i went to put my jeep into low and nothing happened! Since then I have checked every fuse that could be blown searched online for similar issues and have come up with a nothing. The owners manual and Haynes manual are no help as well.

I thought it might be a loose wire connecting the switch, but when i press the button to put the TC into N i get a dash warning (i wasn't tiring to put it into N just seeing if it would do ANYTHING!) So I'm at a loss right now, It was on a boat for a little over a month in route here, they offloaded it from the boat fine but they hit a switch turning my LED rock lights on all day and killed the battery 100% dead, me and a buddy had to jump it to get it started. (maybe that caused it?) I havent had any issues with a dead battery since. the switch worked fine in Germany a couple weeks before I dropped it off... I might take it back to the shipper and tell them they did it and to fix it! lol anymore ideas?

Any engine codes? Try the ignition switch trick and see if there are any stored.

Checked with my superchips and had a couple codes cleared them and still nothing from the 4low switch.

May sound a bit silly, but with your battery dying, it could be your battery. These jeeps do weird things when they have bad batteries in them. Mine wouldn't shift out of drive. Could be a possible, though unlikely, solution.

I hate to ask, but at any point, even for a moment, did the jumper cables get connected backwards (pos to neg & neg to pos)? That can cause all sorts of grief, and would need you to check all the fusible links.

If not: Have you tried disconnecting the battery, waiting 15 minute, and then reconnecting?

Poor grammar is something up with which I shall not put.

There are some things Superchips will not show, for example I had a MIL light on hooked up my Superchips and it did not show any codes, doing the ignition switch trick and it showed one of the O2 sensors was acting up. Just a thought

Do you use and service your 4x4 system regularly? I had the same problem with a dash message (service 4x4 system). My OBD II couldn't find any code, only the Star reader at the dealership could. After changing the actuators and the fluids in the differentials everything came back to normal.
