While starting the engine in your car is as simple as turning the key, there are a few steps that must be followed to make sure that it will actually crank. Here’s what you should do:

  1. Make sure the key is in the ignition (and that you have a key programmed for the car).

  2. Make sure the transmission is in Park (if you have a manual transmission, it should be in Neutral).

  3. Put your foot on the brake.

  4. Turn the key all the way forward to the START position.

  5. The engine should turn over.

  6. Let go of the key as soon as the engine cranks.

  7. The key will automatically move back to the ON position.

  8. With your foot on the brake, put the car in drive (or reverse if you’re backing up).

Since the transfer case is an enclosed case housing many different gears and other components, the damage should be mostly limited to the contents of the case itself. I would however recommend having other compensating parts such as axles inspected...
