    I have 95 1500 Suburban that won't go into 4 wheel. Just bought it, previous owner insists that it works.

    I did have the actuator checked out and it was ok.

    The problem was a wire harness melted on the exhaust,

    there is a bulliten from GM out on the replacement.

    Good

Thank you. It was the actuator. $110 quick fix. Seems to be a frequent problem.

I have a 94. Had the same problem last year. If it is the same as mine there is an actuator located on the front differential. When you pull the lever to put it in 4h this thing acts like a push rod and pushes the gears in place. It screws right in and there is a plug. I bought mine on-line for about 80 bucks. The car guy told me they do wear out becuse the get all the road grime and the part is gas filled. I'm not a mechanic but that is what I had to do.

I have this problem from time to time, the 4 wheel drive won,t turn in, it won,t act up for the dealership, when the service 4 wd message is on I can shut the truck off and come back later and the hubs...


If the service engine light came on, then the computer should have stored the trouble code. The dealer can scan for codes and see that the problem does indeed exist, and what the problem is. Take it back to the dealership and tell them(don't ask them, they don't respond to kindness) you want the computer scanned, you want a copy of the computer readout, and you want the problem fixed, or they can put you in touch with the regional factory representative. You've got to get past the service writer and the service manager to get anything done.

1995 GMC P-UP 4 wheel drive will not engage. Worked fine last night, got up this morning and it would not engage. This model GMC has the manual shift in the floor.


Drive forward, put it in neutral, the into reverse. If you have not used the 4wd for awhile it will need vacuum to activate and disengage

Does not transfer from 2 wheel drive to 4 wheel drive


the next time you shift into 4 wheel drive, try backing up alittle bit and see if it shifts in and light comes on. i have a 1995 half ton chevy pickup and thats what i have to do do to get it to lock in.
