The tranfer case does not disengage. The code says active tranfer case mode switch fault.

Why would all the lights come on my 4 wheel drive buttons about ten minutes after i start the truck


My 2003 Silverado has done this several times. This happens (at least on my truck) when I switch from any other mode to 2H when the truck is not moving. The front hubs are locked in the engaged position (actually, it locks inside the front differential) when in 4HI, 4LO, or Auto-Trac. When switching to 2HI, the front hubs try to unlock. The mechanism may bind, especially if they haven't been used for months, like during the summer, and don't completely move to the unlocked position. A switch tells the controller when unlocked, but doesn't always get triggered when the hubs don't get completely disengaged. Usually cycling between 2HI and Auto-Trac while driving will free up the hubs and make prevent the problem of all 4 lights coming on at once. Turning the engine off and then restarting it will usually correct the problem with all 4 lights lit at the same time by resetting the transfer case controller. Then, you will be able to switch from 2HI to Auto-Trac and back to 2HI while driving, as described above, to free up the mechanism. If this doesn't fix it, you will likely have to replace the switch in the front differential that tells when the hubs are completely disengaged, or, more likely, the motor that disengages the hubs/drive axles in the front diff.

1997 silverado, 4 wheel drive will not engage after it gets wet. If engaged before it gets wet it will work fine.If you disengage then reengage it will not work.


hi there
there is a sensor on top of the tranfer case that plugs in i would think that the plug is corroded or exposed you will have to climb underneath to check it out

2001 pt cruiser (TRAC button )


the Trac button disengages the Traction Control System. I think some engineer installed this button specifically for teenage boys. I would keep the traction button on as it will help you in bad weather to reduce the chance of wheel spin.

95 Grand Cherokee front drivetrain


Hi Terrell,

First off, thanks for the detailed description of your problem. I wish they were all as well written as yours.

It's tough not being able to hear the noise it's making. Luckily I can draw parallels to my own experiences with GC's. Mine has 'Select-Trac', which like your 'Command-Trac', enables us to shift on the fly to 4WD. Meaning, we don't have to stop, get out, lock the hubs, get back in then shift to 4WD. Also like yours, my front end was making some noise.

What was up with mine: The 'Select-Trac' on my G.C. is a lever type switch on the center console. When I switch from 2WD to 4WD it routes a vacuum line to an actuator which engages the transfer case. The moving parts are all near the T-Case. While in 4WD, going any faster than a crawl I'd hear a mild grinding/whirring sound. It increased with speed, all but disappeared as I decelerated and made me crazy.

What it turned out to be was a Vacuum leak. The 'bellows' (for lack of a better description) type actuator was only partially engaging the the 4WD. Enough to lock the drive train, not enough to fully mesh the gears resulting in all sorts of worrisome noises. I found and fixed the leak, adjusted the range on the mode rod and that was it.

You're thinking, 'That's special'.

Well here's the parallel.
Command-Trac is also vacuum actuated. The difference is it engages your hubs from the the front axle by means of a 'shift fork'. The technical name is the 'Command-Trac Axle Shift Motor'.
When applied, the vacuum actuator moves the fork one way or the other, engaging or disengaging the hubs.

From your excellent diagnosis, it sounds like 4WD isn't fully disengaging.
You were correct about the front drive shaft. It should not be spinning while in 2WD.

Qualifiers: Is the grinding sound different at low speeds? While making sharp turns?

Have another look with these new facts in mind. Check vacuum lines, lubricant in the axle.

If you get me your engine size, tranny type, etc. I can probably scare up some vacuum diagrams (on the off chance you need them).

I hope this opens new doors for you.
Comment me back with what you come up with.
Good luck buddy.
Mike
