You can switch between 2WD and 4WD while driving in a straight line at a speed no higher than 100km/h. You must stop the vehicle to switch between 4WD and 4WD-L.
1. 2WD: for normal on-road driving, with all engine torque going to the rear wheels.
2. 4WD: front axle is engaged and locked, there is no center differential. Can be used on loose surface only.
3. 4WD-L: front axle is engaged with low ratio gears

I've had a 2008 Suzuki Gr Vitara that I bought new. No issues until last night I was making a Right turn at a corner slowly and reached down in the dark to turn on the heater dial and accidentally turned the Transfer Switch from 4H to 4HLOCK. Now the light on the dash shows it's stuck there and the vehicle doesn't act right at all. I can successfully move the selector through all settings, (N, 4H, 4H LOCK, and 4L LOCK), however it just doesn't remove the dashboard indicator showing 4HLOCK, and the vehicle doesn't act like the right front tire is engaged.
All 3 versions of the Swift are also available with 4WD
The Jimny does have a transfer box which is chain driven. At least the 2010 model is.
I have an Ignis 4grip and 2013 SX4 4x4, neither have the systems as described above.
The Ignis has permanent AWD.
The SX4 doesn't automatically switch from 2wd to 4wd, it is either 2wd, auto when it has 80/20 split which can vary to 50/50 if wheels slip, or 50/50 locked.
Further to my post should point out my 2013 SX4 is the older model, not latest s cross.
Can anyone tell if any Vitara models have locking differentials? Front/rear/both?
Grand Vitara has locking central diff.
Can actuater pump be eliminated? If so how?
What model do you refer to Paul?
i need a COMPLETE 4wd switching motor for suzuki escudo 2006 model.
I guess from what I am reading I can't take my Suzuki Grand Vitara (2008) out of 4 wheel drive? I just thought it would be better on fuel if I could get it out of 4 wheel drive? I put it in N and the differential light started flashing.
No mention of the XL7? Is it the same system as the Vitara? If so, perhaps that should be mentioned.
i have a Suzuki Grand Vitara 2005 , and i have a problem with 4*4 gear , its sometimes operates and other doesn't operate, i guess that the problem is from the air pump actuator
i wonder if it's weak or not , if i wait a time for it it will engage ( i mean 4*4)
hi I have a 2001 grand vitara 5 speed manual but the rear diff has blown will a automatic centre diff fit
Hey, I have a 2007 grand vitara and my toddler knocked the transfer from 4h to n, i didnt realise until i pulled away, now the indication light for 4 wheel drive high range centre differential lock mode has come on and its flashing, the car is also losing power round corners and is puling to one side, feels very sluggish - any ideas?
