problem #2

Dakota Laramie 4.7L V8

  • Automatic transmission
  • 158,000 miles

Shifts into 4HI/4LO fine but won't go back to 2WD. When I attempt to put it back into 2WD the "4x4 Lock" light flashes then stays on in a steady orange light. It's obviously not good to drive in 4WD on dry surfaces but I have no choice seeing as it won't shift back in to 2WD.

There was so much about this truck I was unaware of. I have mentioned to the service center and they tried to blame it on me. I will Never buy another Chrysler Product. The truck its self is beautiful, body wise. But other than that it is one issue after another. Dare I mention How it can drink an alcoholic under the table!
