The first thing to do is have someone hook up a diagnostic scanner to check the codes. Some auto parts stores will do this for free, or you could purchase a basic scanner and do it yourself. Once you have the codes you'll have a better idea of what repairs need to be performed. Unfortunately without more info, it's hard to tell why the light is on. Hope this helps.

1998 Chevy Suburban - service 4wd light comes on after running 4x4 for 2 mins


Well it could be the selector switch, but I doubt it.
Generally, the service light means something is not working that the computer controls. Solenoids and valves are a couple of possibilities.
The transfer case is shifted by solenoids commanded by the body computer based on the switch position on the dash.
You should be able to have a shop scan the body computer for trouble codes and proceed from there.
A basic code reader may not access the body computer.

I have a 1995 suburban 4WD with a 350 gasoline engine. I can not switch to 4WD. When I try to switch to low and not drag the lever quickly over. Will the scratch sounds. I get no light in the 4WD indicator...


First, make sure the engine is sufficiently warm, at least 80 degrees.
The vehicle should be slowly rolling at about 2 to 5 mph and the transmission should be in NEUTRAL when shifting into 4x4 Low Range. It will grind and/or lockout otherwise. 4x4 High is suitable for snow and ice driving on pavement or gravel roads.
