Mine would change sometimes but not others, it would get stuck in 4wd or awd sometimes and to get it back to 2wd I would have to unplug it.
its accessed from the drivers side under the dash or behind a panel, ill look for a pic, i think ive got one somewhere.

i thought maybe i took some pics of its location, but i didt.... heres a pic of the TCCM



Copy and pasted from an email i sent to a guy that thought he had one to sell me:

if you pull off the panel under the steering column, on the right, you will see a steel frame, behind that frame is a blue box about 5" long or so with a few plugs in the back of it..... theres 3 screws that are 7mm. you can unscrew it, and wiggle it down and unplug it.

Ok just found out today, that the transfer case is NOT engaging now. But she doesnt know which one its stuck in..I shall find that out this week.

Okay here is some history. 3 months ago it got a 4x4 error after it was jumped. 1 month ago I changed oil on it and then both 4low and 4high were blinking. I had her put it in neutral, switch to 2wd and back, and that seemed to fix it. Then last week I did the blower motor, harness and resistor and after that, no lights on 2wd, 4low/high.

I think napa had something I searched for $250 but maybe that was the transmission control module..

So is there anyway for a dodge dealership to test just the module?

I did a error code check using the ODO button:
key in off position, hold ODO button, turn key to on but do not start car, wait till the odo display shows chek, then let go of odo button. Car goes through some tests and displays a 3 digit code of there is an error. No error there. I do have a cel but thats a p0455 large evap leak Im already aware of. This tccm is kind of expensive so Id like to know if theres a way to test for it to make sure that is the part.

Will a 2002 tccm work on a 2001? Is it more specific to transmission and engine than year? the junkyard called me back and said they just pulled one but its a year a head....

Ok Just looked at the durango im working on, the tccm was not secured down at all. It was stuffed under the carpet in the center under the dash... If anyone has pic's of where its installed I would appreciate it so I can reinstall it properly.

Number off mine are:
P56028242AF (part number I assume?)

If this matches the one at the junk yard I'm good I think. Junk yard said they pulled it from a 2001, but it had a 2002 tccm installed. Only $60 so not to bad.

well i thought id update this thread with my FIX.... yes, it was the TCCM, and no, i didnt pay full price. Since im resto-moding an early bronco, i needed some 70's ford truck parts and went down to my local pick n pull. Cash for clunkers ut a LOT of durangos in the junkyards, so i called em while i was back there and asked em what the part would cost, they said control modules are $12.95, so i said fuck it, puled it, brought it home. Finally got time to install it, and as soon as i turned the key on, the familiar lights on the selector switch came on and i was able to shift through all gears in the Tcase.

It hasnt snowed bad yet so I havent been too worried but I'll put it in this week for sure and update the thread if it fixed it. couple more CEL's and a water gurgle and I'll finally have the truck fixed. Glad there are forums, they help a ton

I installed the new TCCM tonight. Pulled the neg on the battery, unplugged old one, plugged in new one, connected battery and put the key in to on but didnt start the car (inside garage) and the 4wd/2wd lights worked; switched between them and heard the motor so all is well.

Now for those cel's..damn rubber evap hoses..seem ok but on the ends theres some cracking so its probably a crack I cant see...ugh

So once the weather warmed up, the issue went away and its back to working great. When I replaced it the first time, it wasnt secured down and hung down in the foot well. I wonder if moisture is getting in it or something weird. She parks in a garage thats heated...but when this issue happens she is parked outside. Hmm Maybe I'll look and see about moving its location or wrapping it with something so moisture doesnt get in it.
