When I put my truck in "park" is the transfer case in neutral? Same thing if I put the truck's shift column in "N" is the transmission in neutral?

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I need to install an encoder motor in the transfer case and has to be in neutral
and I need to know if I leave it in "park" does that mean that the transfer case
is in neutral too?

No. The transfer case has separate controls from the transmission.

Mark, thanks for your response. So if the truck is in "park" and I am installing encoder motor, I need to manually set the transfer case in neutral? This is what happened, I took the truck to a tranny shop and did rebuilt and installed EM but will only engage in 2wd and 4wd auto but will not engage in 4wd low or 4wd high. The guys cannot figure the prob.
