Jeep Liberty: Operating Information And Precautions
The Selec-Trac II active on-demand transfer case provides
вЂў Two-wheel drive (2WD) high range
вЂў Four-wheel drive Auto (4WD AUTO) high range
вЂў Neutral (N)
вЂў Four-wheel drive (4WD LOW) low range
This transfer case is intended to be driven in either the two-wheel drive position (2WD) or the four-wheel drive Auto position (4WD AUTO) for normal street and highway conditions such as dry hard-surfaced roads.
For added capability when traversing steep grades, rough terrain, or extremely poor traction surfaces, select the transfer case 4WD LOW position. This position locks the front driveshaft and rear driveshaft together and forces the front and rear wheels to rotate at the same speed while multiplying engine torque.
Use the transfer case NEUTRAL position for recreational towing only. Refer to вЂњRecreational TowingвЂќ in вЂњStarting and OperatingвЂќ for further information.
вЂў The 4WD LOW position is intended for loose or slippery road surfaces only. Driving in this position on dry hard-surfaced roads may cause increased tire wea вЂў When operating your vehicle in 4WD LOW, the engine speed is approximately three times that of the 2WD position or 4WD AUTO position at a given road speed. Take care not to over-speed the engine and do not exceed 25 mph (40 km/h).
вЂў Proper operation of four-wheel drive vehicles depends on tires of equal size, type, and circumference on each wheel. Any difference in tire size can cause damage to the transfer case. Tire rotation schedule should be followed to balance tire wear.
вЂў You or others could be injured if you leave the vehicle unattended with the transfer case in the NEUTRAL position without first fully engaging the parking brake. The transfer case NEUTRAL position disengages both the front driveshaft and rear driveshaft from the powertrain and it will allow the vehicle to move despite the transmission position. The parking brake should always be applied when the driver is not in the vehicle.
вЂў Always engage the parking brake when powering down the vehicle if the вЂњSERV 4WD Warning LightвЂќ is illuminated. Not engaging the parking brake may allow the vehicle to roll, which may cause personal injury.
вЂў Since four-wheel drive provides improved traction, there is a tendency to exceed safe turning and stopping speeds. Do not go faster than road conditions permit. You or others could be injured.
