Rear Electronic Locker (E-Locker) System - If Equipped

The Rear E-Locker System features a mechanical locking rear differential to provide better traction in the 4WD LOW position. The "REAR LOCK" button is on the Selec-Terrain Knob.

Activating The Rear E-Locker

To activate the Rear E-Locker System, the following conditions must be met: 1. The 4WD system must be in 4WD LOW.

2. The ignition switch in the ON position and the engine running.

3. Vehicle speed must be below 15 MPH (24 km/h).

4. To engage Rear E-Locker, push the REAR LOCK button once.

Deactivating The Rear E-Locker System

To deactivate the Rear E-Locker System, the following conditions must be met: 1. Rear E-Locker must be engaged, and the REAR LOCK indicator light on.

2. The ignition switch in the ON position and the engine running.

3. To disengage Rear E-Locker, push the REAR LOCK button once.

NOTE:

  • It may also be necessary to drive slowly steering back and forth to complete engagement and disengagement of the E-Locker.
  • When engaging Rear E-Locker, the indicator lights in the instrument cluster and on the REAR LOCK button will begin to flash. When the shift is complete the REAR LOCK indicator lights will remain on.
  • When disengaging Rear E-Locker, the indicator lights in the instrument cluster and on the REAR LOCK button will begin to flash. When the shift is complete the REAR LOCK indicator lights will remain off.
  • Shifting into or out of Rear E-Locker is possible with the vehicle completely stopped; however, difficulty may occur due to the mating clutch teeth not being properly aligned. Several attempts may be required for clutch teeth alignment and shift completion to occur.

    The preferred method is for the vehicle to be rolling, below 15 MPH (24 km/h), while including right and left steering maneuvers to allow for the clutch teeth to align.

  • The Rear E-Locker System must be disengaged prior to taking the vehicle out of 4WD LOW range. If 4WD LOW shift conditions/interlocks are not met, a message will flash from the Electronic Vehicle Information Center (EVIC)/Driver Information Display (DID) with instructions on how to complete the requested shift.
