It sounds like a bad encoder motor on the transfer case. This was a very common problem with the S series trucks. Unfortunatly it is not a cheap fix. You will be looking at around $450 - $550 to have it fixed, more if at a dealer. Hope this helps.

How do I fix my 99 blazer the dome lights won't turn on and the 4 who drive won't light up or work


In the instrument panel fuse box fuse # 8 CTSY LP 10A ,that's for the dome lights, fuse panel is left side of IP. What are you talking about 4 who drive won't light up or work ? 4 wheel drive ? Do you have two speed automatic or two speed selectable ?
Switch Indicator Lamps Do Not Light - One or More ? Check fuse #15 IP fuse box 10A 4WD . This is for two speed auto !

Circuit Description

The indicator lamps circuits consist of 5 individual lamps contained inside the mode/range switch assembly, they are AUTO, 4WD, 2HI, 4HI, 4LO and NEUTRAL. The AUTO, 4WD, 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO lamps are contained inside their respective range button. When the ignition is ON, the transfer case shift control module illuminates the indicator lamp that corresponds to the current ATC gear position by providing a ground through a current limiting driver.
The transfer case shift control module flashes each indicator lamp after a shift has been requested and will continue to flash until the transfer case shift control module can complete the shift. After a shift to AUTO, 4WD, 2HI, 4HI, or 4LO is made, the transfer case shift control module will flash that indicator lamp until the transfer case shift control module receives a high voltage signal on CKT 1695 from the front axle switch.
A solid state circuit located inside the switch supplies ignition voltage to the lamps. The solid state circuit also receives voltage whenever the headlamp switch is in park or headlamp position. When the solid state circuit receives voltage from the headlamp switch it will reduce the voltage that it supplies to the indicator lamps, dimming the lamps when the headlamps are ON.

I just bought a 2001 blazer 4.3 4wd and it was stuck in 4 low


It should tell you on the Shifter whether or not that you can Shift on the Fly. Check the Manual first if there is one in the Truck. Some Models had this and some Did not. Was an Extra from Factory Option.

My 98 chevy blazer won't shift into 4wd.


Most common problem is the vacuum diaphragm that is so inconviently mounted UNDER the battery tray.The cable that locks in the front diff is attached to it and vacuum pulls it in/out.

Tranfer case does not shift into 4HI from 2WD


try resetting the 4X4 module first. Remove the courtesy lamp and ATC fuses for at least 1 minute the reinstall fuses. Cycle key on and off 5 times then try your four wheel. Please rate if this works.
