2014 Renegade 1100cc 4WD Engagement

Recommended Posts

I'm new to 4WD.  I have a 2014 Renegade T2, 1100cc engine, 1700 mi.  I'm having difficulty selecting 4WD.  I don't want to do anything that might cause damage.  The only info I can find is to bring the UTV to a complete stop before selecting 4WD.  When I do that, the handle doesn't seem to engage 4WD; it doesn't stay in the down position.  Do I have to release the clutch?  Do I have to drive forward / backward to make it engage?  I don't think I have a transmission problem (no grinding of any gears).  Maybe a cable adjustment issue?

Thanks in advance for your help.

I know it has to connect the front axles to the drive train either through the differential or inside the transaxle itself.  In my research, it's in the front differential.  I'm reluctant to take anything apart at this point since I'm new to 4WD and off-roading.  I just want to know if the lever is operating normally.  I don't want it to pop out of 4WD on the fly and maybe cause damage.

Thank you for any info and insight you can provide.

      Earlier this week — and after much anticipation — Lexus unveiled the new 2022 LX 600 SUV. It's a luxurious American version of the new Land Cruiser and shares a V6 powertrain with the new Toyota Tundra pickup. The LX wasn't a shock; it's just about the most characteristically "Lexus" vehicle one could imagine, except perhaps the LS sedan. But Lexus also released a different vehicle you would not have expected this week.
      At the end of the LX announcement video, Lexus teased a new mobility concept called the "Recreational Off-Highway Vehicle," or ROV. It's an all-terrain vehicle — or, as we will choose to interpret it, a supremely badass golf cart — that runs on a hydrogen combustion engine. Sadly, Lexus did not include an utterly superfluous spindle grille, although the shape of the front end will certainly remind you of that shape.



      An ATV makes perfect sense as a showcase for hydrogen combustion. One of the technology's most significant drawbacks for current production use is that it can't produce as much power as gasoline combustion engines with the same size engine footprint. So a low-speed wood path cruiser could get away with far less power than a recreational on-highway vehicle.

      Got me a New Coleman Outfitter 2021 400
      and joining here to hopefully learn lots about it.
      I understand it's not top of the line but couldn't offord other. I'll be using it for riding around the neighborhood and light off reading here in Southwest Florida and not planing on beating it just some fun with my wife

      Hey all, 
      Looking to possibly purchase a 2008 Renegade 4 seater, 11000 miles.  asking $5,000 I know nothing about these machines, they seem pretty decent. Hard to find any info on them even on youtube. Anyone had any advice, or things to look at before buying? Thanks in advance!

      Very new to any forum. Haha We have an 09 R2 joyner renegade 800cc. We are unable to start it. It has been sitting for a few seasons.

Relays and fuses checked and pulled and reseated. New battery even. Thanks yall.

      Pre-2014 Renegade with the 800cc engine.  Much of this may apply to the R4 also.
