If I unplug my transfer case on my 2005 AWD Dodge Durango Hemi, will it still run?

Asked by Jun 20, 2017 at 01:17 PM about the 2005 Dodge Durango SLT 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Been told if I unplug it, the vehicle will stay in neutral because it is AWD.  Has
anyone had there's engage while driving down the road?  I understand that they
light flashes, but has it actually engaged?  Mine only engages when I am
turning tight (Like in a parking lot)

Yes you can. Mine was stuck in 4WD for weeks...until I hit a huge pothole. I immediately pulled up onto a curb, unplugged it and have been driving it like that ever since with no problems.

I unplugged the fuse for the TC, but the light still flashes and makes the engaging sound. Either the fuse box is labeled wrong or something.

I unplugged the actual wiring harness clip at the transfer case motor. Just wrap it so no dust gets in there, tie it up and go

Just make sure it's out of 4wd first!
