My 98 chevy k1500 has the electonic push button 4 wheel drive that does not work i have replaced it but still get nothing shows power but does not enguage

there is a transfere case shift control module . (think it is under the passager side dash kick pannel ) this module recives a signal from the 4wd switch that tells it to shift the transferecase into 4wheel, there is also a motor on the trasferecase too . Now its hard to test these with out a scan tool because you need to see if each component is sending and recievcing the proper comand .

Electronic auto 4wd button pushed and now 4wd high won't stop blinking, goes into 2wd high ok but not 4wd high or low. Both just blink. Tried putting it in neutral as manual described, which worked. ...

When you push teh 4hi button, yo shouldhear a click under the right side dash. That is the transer case shift module. Also check for any blown fuses. You should also hear the encoder motor activate when you push the 4wd button. The encoder motor is attached to the side of the transfer case and you. These tend to go bad from corrosion. You can test the encoder motor by disconnecting it from the electrical supply and use a jumper to apply 12 volts to the plug in on the motor. I found an easy way to apply voltage whenever I need t test something. I use a 12 volt battery charger. Straighten out two metal paper clips and clamp one in each of the alligator clips on the battery charger. turn the charger on to the lowest amp setting and us the paper clips as probes to activate whatever part you are testing. Works great, and you don't have to remove the part to test it. If the encoder motor won't work with the tester, it will have t be replaced. They are not cheap. Avoid the dealerships. They'll charge up to $800 for one. Check NAPA or auto zone. If the encoder motor checks out ok, then move on to the vacuum lines, especially the one under the battery tray. You will have to remove the battery and ray to get to it, but it is notorious for coming loose. Read your owners manual for warnings about disconnecting the battery, concerning stereos and alarm systems.

Slips out of gear when in 4WD

Check the oil level in the shift on the fly (sotf) part of the axle thats the left of the front one - it holds about 1 pint of gear oil and gets missed at service time .
