It is called a thermostatic actuator; you can purchase one at most auto part stores or at the dealership. I have also seen a manual cable replacement kit that bypasses the thermostatic unit.

Make sure the switch on the transmission that engages the front actuator is working and has power to both sides of lugs or the front axle actuator will not engage

01 Chevy Silverado 4 X 4 not working. 4WD light


Having the same exact problem but with my 1999 escalade. Thought it was the actuator bought a new one installed it transfer case would engage but front end wouldnt lock. Took it out of housing left it plugged in got a friend to go through all the 4wd for me and the plunger never moved out the actuator. Checked my wiring harness which is a four prong ann it had one hot prong like it is suppose to. Traced wires even replaced dash switch same problem. Taking it to local dealership tom to have it checked for codes. I was told it could be the transfercase actuator even though its workin that actuator is what sends power to the front to engage the actuator to lock the differential.

No 4 hi


Hi: 4 High and 4 Low button should be flashing, If no 4 low either problem will be in the vacuum actuator located below the battery tray. 9 out of 10 times the actuator is not getting vacuum. Battery acid at some time dripped down on the actuator or vacuum lines and created a vacuum leak.
