Shifting into Neutral

To shift the transfer case to N (Neutral) do the following:

1. Make sure the vehicle is parked so that it will not roll.

2. Set the parking brake and press and hold the regular brake pedal. See Parking Brake on page 9‑58 for more information.

3. Start the vehicle or turn the ignition to ON/RUN.

4. Shift the transmission to N (Neutral).

5. Shift the transfer case to Two-Wheel Drive High.

6. Turn the transfer case dial clockwise to N (Neutral) until it stops and hold it there until the Neutral light starts blinking. This will take at least 10 seconds.

Then slowly release the dial to the four low position. The N (Neutral) light will come on when the transfer case shift to N (Neutral) is complete.

7. If the engine is running, verify that the transfer case is in N (Neutral) by shifting the transmission to R (Reverse) for one second, then shift the transmission to D (Drive) for one second.

8. Turn the ignition to ACC/ ACCESSORY, which will turn the engine off.

9. Place the transmission shift lever in P (Park).

10. Release the parking brake prior to moving the vehicle.

11. Turn the ignition to LOCK/OFF.
