Question about 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Crew Cab
My truck has had the service 4WD light on for some time now, I haven't been able to shift into 4 wd, but the other day I got stuck and was able to shift into 4 low but now cannot get it to shift back. I have tried the disconnecting the battery trick and that didn't do it. Any suggestions.
I HAVE THE SAME PROBLEM. CHANGED SWITCH AND THE SAME THING. I START THE TRUCK AND IS IN 4 HI. THEN HIT AUTO AND THEN 2WD THEN IT SHUTS OFF. AND SERVICE LIGHT COMES ON. STAYS IN 2WD. I CAN HEAR ACTUATOR WHEN TRUCK KEY IS TURNED AND CHANGE WHEN BUTTONS ARE PUSHED. I READ IT COULD BE GROUND UNDER DRIVER SIDE BAD. NEEDED TO BE CLEANED. I WILL TRY TOMORROW

The 4wd switch has gone bad it sounds like. if the light flashes that should be the problem. try buying a used one from salvage yard. it

That was a good suggestion by Molson. Also, if you have been doing a lot of heavy hauling, have them check the strainer, which could be a problem as well.
