Its a possibility that the transfer case might be going out or the fluids in it are bad sometimes after alot of mileage the tranfer case will slip or stick

1999 chevy silverado service 4 wheel drive light


I had a similar problem with the Service 4 Wheel Drive light which came on intermittently then became more consistent in the message center display. It would go into 4 wheel drive if the message center did not display the Service 4 Wheel Drive message in the message center, but not when the message was displayed. I found the transfer case switch module in the dash was defective, and it has been working with no other problems for three years.

THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR IS NOT WORKING TO INGAGE 4 WHEEL DRIVE. CHECK WITH DOOR OPEN WHEN YOU PUSH 4 WHEEL SWITCH YOU SHOULD HEAR MOTOR INGAGE 4 WHEEL DRIVE. IF YOU HEAR MOTOR BUT STILL NO 4 WHEEL DRIVE THE GEAR ON MOTOR COULD BE DAMAGED. REPLACE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR.

Service 4wheel drive light on (dashboard)can I change out the fluid? after driving just a couploe of miles the service light comes on.Took a sample of transfer case fluid and can't quite tell...


The service 4 wheel drive light is indicating a part failure in the 4 wheel drive system.
Take your vehicle to your local Auto Zone or Advance Auto Parts and ask them to scan your Tahoe for trouble codes. The code will help to determine what the component failure is and you can start diagnosing at that point.
Write the code down and reply back, we can go from there.
Good luck.

ENGINE LIGHT ON ATFER HAVING IT SERVICE & THE 4 WHEEL DRIVE LIGHT


There are well over 100 problems in the electronics that turn the service engine soon light on, go to autozone or a kragen and they will run the trouble code test for free, then record that code and post it here. As far as the 4X4 goes that problem is most likely the electric motor that engages the 4X4 tranfer case, u will have to have that tested by either a 4X4 shop or the dealer, the dealer is the best option.
