If your vehicle has an electronically shifted transfer case, then you handle all of the shifts between two and four-wheel drive from the center console. The electronically shifted transfer case is as a knob on your center console with three or four settings, depending on the model. 2WD (two-wheel drive high range), 4WD LOCK (four-wheel drive lock range), 4WD LOW (for where drive low range), and, if equipped, 4WD AUTO (four-wheel drive automatic range). Beneath the knob is a button that says NEUTRAL. Shift between these four settings using the same rules and precautions that you would if using a non-electronically shifted transfer case.
