    I was switched into 4wd low and parked... I then didnt need 4wd I turned the switch and it stayed in 4wd low..... I cant get it out ..... so I took the "motor" that switches it into and out of 4wd off the transfer case.. and manually switched it.... anyone ever have a problem like this what was the result?

    I don't want to assume but you did have the transmission in neutral when you tried to shift back. I have forgotten to do this before. Only easy thing I can think of.

    I have a 02 that does this almost everytime I use low range, I also have a ell of a time getting it to lock into low. a lot of times it never does.

    Most times 4-Lo on any vehicle I've had engages/disengages better with the transmission in neutral and rolling from like 3-5MPH.
