Question about 2001 Chevrolet Tahoe
I have a 2001 Chevy Tahoe. I changed from 2Hi to 4Lo and now I can't get it to go back to 2Hi and the transmission won't shift out.
Yeah, it may be a bad switch or faulty wiring harness. I have some other problems besides the wiring/switch deal. When engaged in 4hi, the front pulls left then right, back and forth pretty strongly (yes, that's driving in the snow). I drained and replaced the fluid in the t.c. and front diff. I took it for a test drive on a thick gravel road and shifted into 4hi. I shifted fine and I drove it for a few minutes with all of the above described pulling. When I went to shift back to 2wd, it wouldn't happen multiple times pushing 2wd and 4hi. Just to see what would happen, I put it in Neutral, shifted to 4low...yeah that worked, just because it entrapped be into being stuck in 4low. I was close to the house by then so driving forward and back...pushing buttons...using manuals instructions to shift to neutral...pulling fuses....disconnecting the battery...it wouldn't go back to 2hi. I finally yanked of the dash piece surrounding the steering column, yanked and stuffed some wires because I was so ******, unhooked the 4wd switch and put it back together. NOW it is shifting again. I praised the Lord. One problem possibly figured out. Either a bad wiring loom or a bad switch. Hope that helped.

It is either the control switch or the actuator. look if light is flashing on push button switch. if so it is stuck. you can check actuator on front axle, to watch and see if it is moving.
