    I also have the same make and model, and my 4-wheel drive is not working at all. No high, or low. And there's a foot of snow at my house!! The lights aren't even working on the 4-wheel drive push button. Could I have a blown fuse?

    what's the actual problem, is it that the 4x4 won't engage???

I have a 1993 blazer 4.3 w code 4x4 with a 4L60 E . my truck wouldn;t go in 4 hi or low. so i changed the transfer case motor and it works fine now. If you turn the ignition key to on but not crank the engine and open the driver door and push 4 hi button, you should hear the transfer case motor cycle for 3 or 4 seconds every time you push button and the light will flash until it goes in 4wd If the 4 hi button light doesn't flash during cycle then it could be a bad switch. if the transfer case motor won't cycle it could be a fuse or a bad transfer case motor . Hope this answers your question.

Replaced my actuator because the boot was torn which gave me 4wd again but was unable to shift back to 2wd now. Also disconnected the vaccum lines off of the transfer case but I'm not sure which one goes where?

CharBar...

Check the Actuator directly underneath the battery and battery tray.... if the rubber is torn there's your problem... I had the same problem 2 years ago

02 blazer will not change 4wd modes


The most common problem with these would be the transfer case 4x4 actuator motor or also called transfer case selector motor, testing would be a good thing to do before replacing it.

4x4 will not engage on my 1990 Bronco. Light does


It could be the switch, a fuse, a relay, the motor that engages the transfer case (very common problem) or the transfer case itself. Disconnect the motor arm from the transfer case and see if you can move the shift rod by hand. If you can then you know the transfer case is probably OK and you can test from the motor back to the switch.

200 chevy blazer 4x4 is not workin it is push button and the indicator lights dont light up at all


Check the fuse in the fuse box first and replace if the fuse is bad. If the replacement fuse goes bad again, check the wire harness at the encoder motor on the transfer-case. Look for any damages causing a short making the fuse to go bad, once the harness and connectors are good. Inspect the encoder motor, check to see if it's not the problem causing the fuse to go bad and if it is. Replace the encoder motor, good luck and keep me posted.

Pushed button...no light & no 4wd


Check the fuse to the 4x4, if the fuse is good then check the 4x4 electric motor actuator on the transfer case. You should hear it work from 2wd, 4hi to 4low and back to 2wd with the push of the switch. if you don't hear it working then check the wire harness at the actuator motor, look for any damages like corrosion or cracked wire connector clips. If the 4x4 actuator is working on the transfer case, then the front hub 4x4 actuator may have gone bad and that's located on the front differential. It's common for the clip there to corrode and break and is an easy fix with a new collar pin, at worst it's the diaphragm on the vacuum actuator that is located under the battery tray. There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, driver side but when that fails, your front hub stay's locked in the on position. Good luck and keep me posted and hope it's a simple fuse that has gone bad. You can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

My truck is stuck in 4LO and the button in the truck dont work.


If its a push button 4x4 take it to the shop its a VERY COMMON Problem dealing with the electric.Once you pay the $400 to get it fixed get rid of the truck and settle for a Jimmy/Blazer/Bravada with a floor shift 4x4..GM had problems with the push button 4x4.DONT DRIVE YOUR TRUCK IN THE MEANTIME.YOU WILL BLOW YOUR TRANSFER CASE RIGHT OUT OF IT!
