I would not do it at all in 4low.
It is not a good idea to leave it in 4 low all winter,sounds like u might have a loose wire problem.

Push button 4 wheel drive stuck in 4 wheel hi


My GMC Jimmy '01 would slip from 2-wheel to 4-wheel drive while I was driving. First time it happened my mechanic replaced a small part. This last time, he couldn't find anything wrong so he popped the 2-4 out and disconnected the 4-wheel drive. Now I don't have the problem.

95 Jimmy, Transmission will not shift. Will only drive in 1st. Sometimes if I put into 4 wheel drive it will be fine for a mile or so, then drops back to 1st gear?


could be a speed sensor or a transmission ECM issue, try changing the fluid first then bring it to the dealer they have special transmission ecm code readers that can give a diagnostic reading that will give you an idea of what is going on also before this get under the truck and inspect all plugs and wire to transmission.

Rhythmic thud that increases and decreases with speed. I replaced wheell bearings and seals the differential looks ok, real clean. should the axle have any play up and down?


On a 1996 GMC Jimmy 4 wheel drive
Why is it reluctant to coming out of 4 wheel drive? Switch must be working when activated, you can hear it clicking but it won't release into 2 wheel drive, even when backing up and turning the wheels!

Front drive, 4 Wheel drive won't engage


that vacume line goes back to the transfer case, the end that goes behind the motor hooks to a steel tube so it does not get hot from the exhaust., my guess it should be hooked up so it will feed vacume to the vacume ball so it can lock in the axels. if you start the car and shift into 4 wheel drive and listen under hood you should hear a hissing sound, that is vacume, if you can't hear it there, you may have to craw under the right side to hear it, probably came unhooked underneith the car

Does not transfer from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive


the next time you shift into 4 wheel drive, try backing up alittle bit and see if it shifts in and light comes on. i have a 1995 half ton chevy pickup and thats what i have to do do to get it to lock in.

1996 blazer wont go into 4 wheel drive


Try replacing the vacuum lines that go to the transfer case from the engine. I had the same problem on a 95 Jimmy and was told to do it.... I changed every piece of vacuum hose that had anything to do with the 4x4 and it worked. Hope this helps you out
