Question about 1996 Chevrolet Suburban

4WD Hi does not work on 96 Chevy K1500 Suburban

Hello. I am writing to get some help diagnosing the 4WD hi not working on my 96 Suburban. It is electronic 4WD, and when I push the 4WD button, both 4WD Hi and 4WD Lo flash for about 5 seconds, then go off. The vehicle stays in 2WD. 4WD lo works, but seems to **** when accelerating from a stop, almost like the transmission is slipping. I have not checked the fluids yet, and I am wondering if low fluid could cause the 4WD Hi to not work. Any help is greatly appreciated!

My 4wd was having issue going in and out of 4wd and sometimes it would get stuck in 4wd low and enter 4wd low on its own. I fixed this by changing the front differential fluid. I believe it was low and being low didn't allow the 4wd actuator to function properly.

Will shocks off a 2001 chevy truck fit a 1995 truck 4wd


The description is vague. If you are asking if shocks from a 2001 Chevy Silverado, K1500 will fit a 1995 Chevy Silverado K1500, the answer is no (on front and rear shocks). I also looked up a 2001 Chevy S10 4wd and a 1995 Chevy 4wd. The answer is yes (on front and rear shocks). I hope that helps but if not please write back with the exact two vehicle descriptions.

Hello, I have a 1992 Chevy K1500 pickup, 5 speed, 4WD. I just replaced thermal 4WD actuator for the front axle with the new motor type and with a new wiring harness. Always goes into 4WD right away now....


Sounds like you have the actuator switch set to tight. You might want to try to adjust the switch so it has a little room between the switch and the shifter. Hope this helps.

Suburban 4 hign does not work but 4 lo does


I have had maybe 9 Suburbans, over the years. Whenever I put in 4WD (whether Lo or Hi), I drive
normally. THEN, when DISENGAGING, I always drive the vehicle in REVERSE maybe 75 yards
AFTER placing in 2WD mode. Sometimes, still, on my '96 Suburban, --- even though the manual says NOT REQUIRED, it will "stick" in 4WD, UNLESS I take above action. Hope this might help.
