Selectrac Transfer Case Info
Contributed By: John Meister
Because selec-trac control functions are interrelated, mode switch and range lever must be used in specific combinations to operate the transfer case.
With range lever in the HI range, select either 2-wheel drive (2WD) or full time 4-wheel drive (4WD) by moving the mode switch. Mode selection can be made "WHILE THE VEHICLE IS MOVING AT ANY LEGAL SPEED."
NOTE: If mode switch is moved from one position to another while the vehicle is not moving, it may be necessary to move the vehicle forward or backwards slightly for the transfer case to fully engage 4WD, especially in cold weather.
If mode switch is in 4WD and the transfer case has completed the shift, Selec-Trac offers a choice of HI, N, or LO ranges by moving range lever. Range shifts must be made "ONLY AT LOW SPEED 2-3 MPH, 3-5 KM/H)".
CAUTION: Never attempt to engage LO range when vehicle is in 2WD or when vehicle is moving faster than 2-3 mph (3-5 kmh). Transfer case damage may result.
"WARNING: NEVER PARK YOUR VEHICLE WITH RANGE LEVER IN THE N (NEUTRAL) POSITION. THE VEHICLE COULD ROLL UNEXPECTEDLY EVEN IF AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION IS PLACED IN PARK OR A MANUAL TRANSMISSION IS IN GEAR."
Mode Selection (2WD/4WD)
NOTE: Complete transfer case engagement into HI must be made before you can or should attempt to engage 2WD.
Range Shifts (HI-N-LO)
CAUTION: Do not try to move range lever from HI to LO when mode switch is in the 2WD position. The range lever shift linkage could be damaged.
- HI position
- N Position (Neutral
- Lo Position
WARNING: DO NOT INSTALL SELECTIVE DRIVE HUBS ON SELEC-TRAC VEHICLES. IF THESE HUBS ARE LEFT UNLOCKED WHEN THE VEHICLE IS PARKED, THE VEHICLE COULD ROLL UNEXPECTEDLY--EVEN IF AN AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION IS IN PARK OR A MANUAL TRANSMISSION IS IN GEAR.
