Question about 1999 GMC Jimmy

Unable to shift from 2hi to 4hi in 1999 gmc jimmy slt 4x4

I purchaced this Jimmy from a friend last may and was told everything worked fine, and that the 4x4 mode was never or seldom used back around the time it was new. Today we have had a lot of snow & I tried to engage 4hi .....is there a switch I missed or a procedure I did incorrectly? Also if it is not engaging what should I look for as the most likely solution to this problem?

Thanks

    I have a 1992 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortec, I have replaced the cab switch, the transfer case switch and the vacuum switch under the battery. The 4x4 unit will work some times and is not responding at the moment. Is there another switch I should find? James

2000 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Switch not working and Shifting hard between 1st and 2nd


Change the switch itself if it drives normal then randomally kicks into 4 lo/4 hi i had the same problem and a transmission shop told me it was the vaccum and the transfer case but one of my mechanic friends told me that it was my switch and shops only tell you other things for the money. Try changing the switch.

4Hi won't switch back to 2Hi


First try hitting the 2HI when in nuetral. If that doesn't work put the vehicle in reverse and hit the 2HI switch and tap the brakes at the same time. Usual if you do this, when you put it into drive it will release.

You should be able to put in 4x4 while in drive less than 35mph. Mine had a switch to turn to engage or dis-engage.

On my 2000 chevy S10 blazer, when I push the 4HI button, the 4HI and 4LO buttons flash a yellow light and it won't shift to 4WD, stays in 2HI and the light in the 2HI button is on yellow......I hear...


vacuum leak or vacuum locker solenoid problem. a great way to check for both is to remove both vacuum lines from the solenoid (located on firewall above destributor), and put a connector between them, push the button on the dash and see if it locks in.

Won't shift into 4 wheel drive mode at all / 2000 GMC Jimmy SLT


I have had the same problem with my 2000 jimmy. Disconnect the battery for approx 1 minute and then reconnect, this should reset the computer. It has worked for me every time. I was told it was a glitch with GMC.
