I bought 2007 4*4 Patriot sport seven months back and it’s going good so far. Transmission works smoothly and 4*4 drive is fun in snow.
The only issue I have is I am unable to shift it to L. It just doesn’t go there. I don’t want to push really hard, just don’t want to break anything.
It’s effortless to switch between P R N D but not to L. It’s 2007 model, so it only has L gear, not +/- L gear like higher year models.
is there any other way to shift it? Please suggest.

Thanks,
Varry

There's really no other way to shift it besides the shifter.

Take the air filter box out and check the linkage on top of the transmission to see if anything is catching or binding on it, or if a cable has come loose, etc.

You may need to take the shifter console off inside and check for binding there too.
