Default Help my 2008 Dodge Ram 4x4 is stuck in low 4 wheel drive

I recently bought a 2008 Dodge Ram 4x4 -- and now it is stuck in low 4 wheel drive. I can drive it, but the switch won't put it back to 2 wheel drive -- the dash shows 4 wheel low. Anyone out there have any suggestions? Feel free to email me at ljcobb@comcast.net.

Thanks

Try putting it in neutral, then switch it. If not, post up in the 3rd Gen Ram section. Welcome to DF.

to switch in and out of 4lo you have to have it in neutral, at least if it is the electric switch.

Smile Thank you so much

Thank you so much. It worked like a charm. And believe me, my husband thought he bought a lemon. He is so appreciative (and so am I - he is like a new person now). It was such an easy fix, when you know what to do. Thank you again!
