    Got under it today.The tranfer case is shifting and locking in the axle.
    The switch at the front dif has voltage at the wires.My guess is the dif switch is bad.
    Anyone else have this problem and fixed it

The 4x4 in my blazer works only in 4 low sometimes the lights for the switches dont go on the 4hi doesnt work when i press on the brakes while in 4low the rear wheels keep spining and push the blazer...


Ineed to know what kind of shifting system you have. Is it a shift lever or a push button systemThe fact that it works sometimes is a good sign. So this means its not completely broken and could be a simple adjustment

Won't shift into 4 wheel drive..lights on panel


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.

you need to pull the switch out of the dash and look behind the swict hfor the actuator, chances are the stud that touchs the actual relay is broken use a pen or something slender and long to push it to the desiref position, other than thats go to a junk yard and look for that switch, should just pop out with a lil prying..

97 S10 4x4, 2 Wheel light does not turn back on immediately


I had a 2000 blazer do the same and it was a vacuum hose leak by a little box in the middle of the firewall.

On my brother's blazer the hose leak was under the top part of the driver's side fender.
