4 wheel drive won't engage

Which do you have ?
Transfer Case - NVG 236 (Two Speed Automatic)
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
The NV236 transfer case is an automatic transfer case with three drive ranges. Shifting from rear wheel drive to four wheel drive is done automatically when the transfer case shift control module receives wheel rotating slip information from the speed sensors. The transfer case shift control module then engages the transfer case motor/encoder to position the transfer case from rear to four wheel drive. When the transfer case shift control module receives information that the wheel rotation is the same on both axles, the transfer case shift control module sends position information to the motor/encoder to put the transfer case back into rear wheel drive. The three drive ranges are 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO. The 2HI position is for normal driving with the rear wheels pushing the vehicle. The 4HI, position is for driving through sand, snow, mud, gravel, or heavy rain at normal or slightly below normal speeds. The 4HI engages the front axle to allow for four wheel drive. The front axle is pulling the vehicle, and the rear axle is pushing the vehicle. The 4LO range is used for off road driving, heavy snow, deep mud, or shallow fording. The 4LO is similar to the 4HI except that the gearing in the transfer case is set for low speed and high torque. The NV236 is manufactured at Syracuse New York by New Venture Gear a division of New Process Gear for General Motors.

The problem your are speaking about could be a few things. All things that are somewhat common to go bad on Chevys/GMCs. Each one of the cars I worked on had a different problem. I have changed the switches, the 4wd solenoid, and TCM on different trucks. IMO the TCM location in the passenger kick panel is a poor location allowing water and other passenger debris to get into it. Once water gets in that area you can imagine already what occurs. One of the cars the TCM bracket was rusted by the ground and eventually the weak ground fried it. The weird thing is the TCM would allow it to shift sometimes and not other times or partially engaging causing the wonderful light to blink rapidly. What I have found of some time with these trucks is pushing the button to change the truck to two wheel drive and driving a few feet in reverse helps ease the change.

So you can start with a new switch that pops in and out of the dash in a few mins. Can get one on ebay for under 25 dollars. Although, I personally would take off the kick panel and take a look at the TCM. If you see any rust around it, my money would be on that.

Good luck

You probably have a bad encoder motor.It is located on the side of the transfer case on the drivers side.It is black.The other problem they had with these was the switch but you have already replaced this so your next thing is the encoder motor.Hope this helps.Good luck.

not a fuse if you have power to switch,if your 4wheel light does come on and is not blinking,check the little motor on the transfer case,tap it while someone tries the switch,it might just be stuck from not being use,if it doesn't free its self you may need to replace it.
