Won't start in 2wd. No Noise, No Click, but starts in 4wd low

Recently been having problems starting my 2010 2D Jeep Wrangler Manual.

When I go to start it in the morning all my lights turn on but I get no Noise, no clicking sound.

Recently stumbled on a post that mentioned trying it in 4wd low and it started right up.

What do you think could be the problem?

It was been low temperature the past few days, not sure if that could explain it.

Thanks in advance!

I would post this in the JK tech section. This one gets very little traffic.

That said, I've never heard of a JK starting up in one t/case mode but not another. Sounds like a possible computer (TIPM) issue. First thing to try is always resetting all the systems by disconnecting the battery for 10 min. While you've got it disconnected, make sure the terminals on the battery and cables are good and clean.

Could be the neutral safety switch is bad. I believe that switch is inactive in 4Lo.

Mine wouldn't start in cold morning weather, but would start after the sun heated up things. Don't know if it was coincidental that yours started after engaging 4wd, or if it was finally warmer. Here's a video of what I tried and succeeded with. Worth a shot...
