Is there an electric or vacuum switch on a 2001 chevy blazer


There are 2 models here the push button will flash if the system is not engaging or disengaging properly . If front drive shaft is turning. That is with car raised and supported . if front drive axles do not turn then the axle actuator is not engaging axle shaft passenger side. Remove actuator and manually engage shifting collar with a screwdriver still does not turn then inner axle is twisted.

When my car is stuck in the snow and doesnt seem to get traction only one wheel spins and not the other and its front wheel drive wouldnt both spin?


No, even a 4x4 will have only 1 wheel that will spin on each axle in this instance. It's called a floating differential. For stock vehicles with non locking differentials like you have, both cannot spin or have full power at the same time. Hard to explain on this, but picture your car making a hard right turn. Both front wheels would be spinning at different speeds because of the turn. The passenger side tire is spinning much slower than the drivers side tire, therefore if both were spinning at the same time, your tires would chirp and skip on the pavement which would eventually ruin your differential. In offroad applications, we WANT the differentials locked and turning at the same time with true 4x4. But in normal everyday vehicles, even standard stock 4x4's, only 1 tire will do the spinning per axle unless it has possitraction or full locked axle. Clear as snow?

AWD vehicles have a centre diff in the transfer case and if there is no traction on the rear wheels then the front wheels will not turn. All wheel drive is not equal to 4 wd which you assume apparently. Check that there is not a diff lock button in the car to lock the centre diff turning it into 4wd vehicle in which case the front wheels would have moved the vehicle

2001 Suburban 4x4 will not connect


4x4 is not all wheel drive. You still have differentials that will only allow one wheel to direct power most of the time, unless you have posi diffs. Many times you can have one front and one back wheel spinning, even though you are in 4 wheel drive, but you should have had one front wheel spinning as well as the back one when you were stuck. Possibly the one on the other side of the truck was spinning.

4 wheel drive light is on in my jeep


vacumn pod on the front axel is stuck on. Jack up the front wheels spin both tires at the same time and see if the front drive shaft turns. If it does the 4x4 on the axel is engaged. The front drive shaft on these should not turn when vacumn pod is disengaged. YJ's have a split axel on the right side inner axel shaft.
