You will need to remove the transfer case and rebuild it or buy a remanufactured one online from the many sources out there, cost about $400.00 You can also do a used parts search for one at this site

SOURCE: 2004 GMC Sierra 1500 4wd. Auto transfer case light issue

I have the same problem. It is intermittent and sometimes shows up with service transmission message. To get rid of it just put the truck in park, press the 2 high button and shift into drive while it is still flashing. I will worry about it more when it blows up. You can drive with the vehicle showing the solid neutral and it seems to make no difference. It has to be a wake up problem between the control modules. It only happens on start up.

SOURCE: holes in the transfer case of a 2002 gmc duramax

well there are a few options, depending on the wear of your transfercase you can just replace the rear housing and install new pump clips from gm, jb weld and other bonding agents will not fix the problem but rather prolong it, I just pick up a reman this week for my own truck that was only$1100 great deal compared to junkyards

2004 gmc sierra some times will not shift in or out of 2x2 or 4x4 some times it wont even show you what gear you are in. if you turn engine off it will reset and work then go back to not doing nothing. i...

first check is to inspect the wiring harnesses at the transfer case disconnecting all connectors on the transfer case and the connector to the transfer case shift motor and to inspect for water intrusion and corrision...You may also have a faulty actuator on the transfer case or faulty sensor in the actuator on the transfer case that can cause this problem
Good luck, i hope this helps.

Not good! there is a sensor in your transfer case that senses that you are now in four wheel drive if your transfer case does not lock in it will set a code and the light will flash and default back to two wheel drive. check the fluid level in the transfer case and front differential for a sign of internal failure. that is causing the grinding sound.

It's the transfer case motor.I had the same problem and replaced it, now it works great. Part is about $100.00 ( aftermarket ) .Ifyou are going to replace yourself you will have to remove front drive shaft and remove yoke from transfer case with an impact wrench for clearance to remove transfer case motor . When you put the new transfer case motor in make sure you line up slot with grove in transfer case motor. Good Luck.

Gearshift selector problem

The gear selector switch is either out of adjustment or it is bad. Loosen the two bolts holding the gear selector in place and turn it slightly to see if the display stops flashing. You will have to manually shift the transmission lever at the switch into neutral, and then turn the switch until the display says neutral. Tighten the bolts and then check all gears. It's also possible the shift cable could also be out of adjustment. Does the display change if you simply wiggle the gear selector lever?
