    Low range and won't go!

    I will come up against an obstacle and the engine will just bog and the rpm's won't come up. Esc shows off. Holding the auto in 1st.

    Is there a trick to get it to go?

    On the floor there should be a two pedals, the one on the right side, you press on it and it goes...

    Low range and won't go!

    On my Jeep, sometimes it likes to pop out of 4 lo, even though it appears to be in, with the lever in the right place and ESC light OFF. When I shift it into 4 lo I use one hand to firmly shift into 4 lo and use other hand to put it back to drive while holding pressure on the t-case lever

    You need to be in 4 low. I have what you describe if I try to wheel in 4 high over moderately large obstacles.

    It's in low. I am sure of that.

    It seems like an electronic issue. Like torque management. Feels like the traction control is on and it is cutting the power.

    If I let off and roll in really slow sometimes it will go fine. But I can also floor it and it will do nothing but load the engine. RPM's won't go much over an idle.

    Yep. I will hold mine in low when shifting it and go reverse to drive to make sure it is locked in all the way.

    It's not coming out of gear. Something is just not letting the engine apply power.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
