I had a very similar problem with my 98 gmc 2500. The 4 low would engage - though the upshifts were erratic, but no 4 high though the light sometimes came on. I changed out the electric shift solenoid or whatever it is called, on the transfer case and it worked fine after that. A fairly simple fix that can be done in 15 minutes. Hope this helps.

I have 2003 RA Holden Rodeo 3.0 ltr T/Diesel. The 2 front wheels don't seem to be engaging when i put it into 4wd (high or low range). I can hear the high and low range click in when i press the buttons...


Does yours have AUTO hubs, there are some luxory models have auto hubs, these rely on difference in drive on the axles,(wheel spin) others have manual locking hubs, these actually need to be engaged manually, these require you to twist the centre of the hub to engage and disengage the front hubs, these sometimes require you to reverse to disengage properly, Rodeo had both depending on model.

4wd 2001 gmc jimmy will not engage


it is possible one of the auto lock hubs is not engaging properly, look in your owners manual and trouble shoot with that but sounds like for some reason it will not engage in 4 wheel drive, sometimes the button is the problem, I am not a fan of the push button system gm has, and I prefer to engage the transfer case with the tried and true second gearshift in the middle of the floor good luck

4wd problem


While you have a helper try to shift to 4x4, get under the truck and tap the shift motor with a mallet.Sometimes the shift motors stick if they haven't been used in a while. If this doesn't work you might have to replace the transfer case shift motor.

4WD UNIT JUMPS OUT OF HIGH?


EASY FIX!

Your Schro's are going bad in the 4WD HIGH Trans Case. This sucks i know. But i had the same problem berfore.

Unit will continue to work good in low range since the stress is less then on the HIGH range. I would never use the 4WD HIGH anyway...doesnt do much on the street...just tears up the gearing and schros.

Hope this helps,

THanks,

Mark

4wd high range does not lite or engage


I had the same problem with my 98 sierra 4x4. Turned out that the electrical activator on the transfer case was not working. It will still go into 4 low but not 4 high. Replace the electrical switch on the transfer case and it should work again.

Intermittent 4wd on 98 jimmy


the module is what i would suspect. and i do believe it is in the r kick panel. i've seen the button pack on dash go bad too, but module is best bet.
