When in Nuetral, and I put the t-case into 4lo, I can hear a click, click, click, then the 4lo light finishes blinking.

Is this normal? I have a 2006 4WD S.

thanks in advance.

That's what I hear. It scared my wife first time she heard it. There are some hefty gears getting moved around in there.

thanks!

Anyone else? I was surprised tonight when I used 4lo for the first time. Then I thought I might have done something, since I didn't shift into N when I turned the switch.

Yup it is perfectly normal to get a couple of clicking sounds when shifting into and out of 4-lo. Nothing to really worry about.

i have a question along the same lines. Is it necessary to shift into neutral before putting it in 4hi or 4lo (i have an S automatic)

I never got into 4lo the first time, because I wasn't in N. So, I drove like that for a few feet, forward and back, and realized I was still in the high range, with the 4lo blinking.

So, I put it in N, then shifted, and heard the clicks, and hoped I didn't bung anything up.

You shouldn't have caused any significant problem. They are pretty strong as long as you didn't try to drive for miles and you were only going forward and backwards for a couple of feet.

If you flip it into 4lo without putting it in neutral you will not cause any harm at all as it won't even try and change the gears.

Been really busy as I'm getting ready to get out myself. Reading posts are hit and miss for now. Packing up the house, etc.

Until if fails.

I would prefer a handle connected to the transfer case like the good old days.

Honestly, i have to agree with you there. e.g. i have a 6sp. The auto makers like the lesser liability of the new fangled stuff though.
