Question about 1999 GMC Sierra
I have an electronic switch for the 4 wheel drive. I tried to switch into 4 Hi a few days ago going 40 MPH. The indicator light blinked for almost a minute then went back to a solid light on the 2 WD. Fuse is good. I checked the switch and it is ohmed out properly. How do you tell if it is the 4 WD controller or the individual solenoids? No cliking or activation sounds of any kind. (Truck is a 1999 but the last of the 1998 body style)
Take the switch out of the dash and around one of the pin points is cracked on the electronic board so just find the point that is craked put a dab of solder on it and it will be as good as new

You need to get a new switch. The soldered contacts in the switch get bad. The continuity comes and goes. 1999 models are the worst. 5 minute job or less.

I had the same issue with my 99 sierra push button 4x4..to check the controller motor you can take it out of the side of the transfer case and using a 12v source check it on your own to see if that is what it is. You can also use an ohm meter on the conrtoller. If that checks out..try the Transfercase shift control modual. It really shouldnt matter what speed you are going for 4x4 high....Try to keep it under 80 though

Will it shift in 4x4 when in park? I think you have to be going less than 10 mph to shift in 4x4.
