Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

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

The lights on all modes go amber when i turn on key, but when i start the car only the 2hi light stays amber, no matter what buttons i push on the 4wd switch. It will not shift into any 4wd mode. Changed the fuse even though it seemed to be good, still nothing. I don't know if the 4wd is vaccuum like the older ones , electric? What? We have over 2 feet of snow here and need the 4wd to work but don't want to get burned by a repair shop.

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.

Does a 1997 Gmc jimmy have back bums or pads


You mean drums? Depends on the vehicle options but should be rotors/pads. Easy to check - look through the wheel spokes and if pads, you should see the rotor.

Where is shift actuator located on 1999 Jimmy 1999


I had the same problem with my 1999 Silverado which would blink several times on the mode I selected then go back to the 2 wheel High. I found the switch module to be defective, after replacing it I have never had the problem again.

2001 jimmy stuck in 4wd low


Usually when a truck gets stuck in 4 low you need to put it in reverse, start backing up very slowly, put it in neutral (or push in the clutch on manual trans models) and stop the truck with the brakes. this will release the load on the gearing which should allow you to shift out of 4 low.
