2017 wonít move after axel replacement

Iíve recently replaced the passenger side axel after it was damaged in a collision,
the jeep moved before I changed the axel even while being damaged from the collision , Iíve made sure the axel shaft was pushed all the way in , and the vehicle does now is rev , when placed back in park the dash reads vehicle speed to high to shift to park

With both tires off the ground, does one or both wheels turn too freely? Does the driveshaft spin when in drive with both wheels on the ground?

I just got lost in thought. It was unfamiliar territory;

Are you still unable to shift to park?

Yes I can shift to park after shifting to neutral and waiting for the drivetrain to stop spinning Öany attempt to shift to park prior to that just leads to the ďvehicle is still moving unable to park messageĒ

Sounds like the replacement axle did not engage the spider gear. Did you by chance move the diff internals with the old axle out by moving the opposite wheel and/or the driveshaft?

- Only way to fix at this point will be to open pig up and see what happened. Probably pull that new axle out slightly and re-install

Yeah with it in park and one wheel on the ground, you shouldn't be able to spin the one off the ground. Something let loose in the diff or the axle is wrong for the jeep. Do you know which diff you have (195, 230) ? They do have different half shaft part numbers, one is shorter I think.

The only caustion I see in the manual is to be careful to not damage the Diff seals.

sounds as if the axle is not inserted all the way into the diff, as suggested a few posts back. I've had it happen before, there is a small ring that makes for an interference type fit, if it's not slid past the internal notches, the vehicle won't move. You have push with a little bit of quick force to get that clip to engage.
