SOURCE: BLAZER TRANSFER CASE PROBLEM
I had the same problem with my blazer, check your tires. If the tread on one or more tires is different, you need to change all 4. I changed only 2 at a time, the front tires would rotate faster than the rear, which would case the gears in the transfer case to bind up and not easily release. When mine did disengage, I would hear a bang and the whole truck would shake. About a year after that, the rear end went out, most likely because of pressure and heat.

Speed sensor has failed.
It is basically a magnet sensor that reads the RPMs of the tranny.
It is screwed into the side of the transmission.
Do you have an aftermarket alarm installed, or remote start?
Sometimes those wires can be damaged if not installed properly.
It is $33.00 at autozone.

Check the fuse to the 4x4, if the fuse is good then check the 4x4 electric motor actuator on the transfer case. You should hear it work from 2wd, 4hi to 4low and back to 2wd with the push of the switch. if you don't hear it working then check the wire harness at the actuator motor, look for any damages like corrosion or cracked wire connector clips. If all electrical is in good working order, replace the actuator motor. If the 4x4 actuator is working on the transfer case, then the front hub 4x4 actuator may have gone bad and that's located on the front differential. It's common for the clip there to corrode and break and is an easy fix with a new collar pin, at worst it's the diaphragm on the vacuum actuator that is located under the battery tray. There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, driver side but when that fails, your front hub stay's locked in the on position. Good luck and keep me posted and hope it's a simple fuse that has gone bad. You can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

Testimonial: "Thank You! I am a machanical idiot and your answer is clear and explains things well."
there is also a control box on the passengers side of the vehicle behind the kick panel (on the inside) it causes a lot of problems with the push button control on the blazers
