If you push the button and it keeps flashing it is in fact not engaged. Usually its just the switch. I replaced mine in my 2000 blazer for 60bucks. If that doesnt fix it your looking at the transfer case module which could run upwards of 1200bucks. Try the switch even a used one or 2 just in case. Steve

How do I use the 4 wheel drive on my GMC Yukon 2004. What dash button turns the 4 wheel drive on?

Hi, depending on the vehicle, there can be different controls. Standard control, 4hi, use in slippery conditions, never on dry pavement. Just push the button, and it will engage. 4low is for extreme conditons and the transmission must be in neuteral to engage 4lo. If you have auto 4wd button, just press the button in slippery conditions. If you have a denali, it is all wheel drive, and there are no buttons to push. So, depending on the model, there are multiple ways, but pushing the button engages it. Good luck...Goop

Sounds like your front axle is trying to engage but does not engage fully.check your vacuum going to the t-case switch and then if that is ok check your vacuum at the front axle actuator.It is located under the battery tray.

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

Noise when engaging 4wd

I have had this problem and it could be one of three things, first the truck has automatic locking hubs, lack of lubrication to these hubs could cause them to make exessive noise while engaging. also you could need to lubricate your universal joins on your forward drive shaft. lastly my problem was abs wheel sensor actuator in drivers front hub had (internal part of hub looks like a large gear with teeth) had broken a gear off causing the hub to get wear in it making it clunk while engaging the four wheel drive.
