FD1 Question

I just got my new Patriot Sport 4X4. To "lock" it in 4X4 you lift the little lever. No transfer case shift from 4lo-4hi etc.. Can you gear down the automatic transmission 1-6 speed while in 4X4 to put it in a lower range than just drive?

you have the gear selector correct? yeah, you can shift down. You're not "gearing down" you're just putting it into first, or second gear ratio.

There is no 4wd "low" on the FD1. Only the FD2 has that option.

4WD ON
ESC OFF( press and HOLD the button for like 5-10 seconds until it beeps or flashes - can't remember which it does - if you just press w/o holding it will say off but it is only partly off - you have to press and HOLD for 100% off )
SHIFTER IN "1"

That wiill be as good as it gets in an FD1

FD1 is working just fine for me. I'm also happy to report that a dirt bike conked out on a trail I frequent with ease!

Yes, same engine/transmission, etc.

I got some good off roading videos, check the link in my signature.

I was worried about just getting the FD1 in my new Compass instead of the FDII. We get some snow around here and the snow removal is lacking sometimes; but I didn't want the CVT.
