This usually means the actuator isn't shifting in. If you look on the transfer case you will see an actuator, have someone hit the button while you have your hand on it, you should feel the solenoid react. If not check the connector for and bent or corridors terminals, if not I would unbolt the actuator and see if it works pulled out. It maybe the connection, actuator or the shift fork inside the transfer case. Good luck

My 05 Chevy 4 wheel drive will not engage, the light on the button just blinks, you can here it try to engage. I have replaced the switch and nothing happened.

Hi, the actuator for the 4X4 is bad . It should run around $50 for the part .. If you are mechanically inclined, you can switch it out . It is mounted on the transfer case and looks like a small starter. Before you replace check the fuse located on the drivers side door panel. You will see 4X4..fuse i believe 30 amp, replace the fuse and if it does not solve the problem then you have to change the actuator as i have said earlier....

My 2004. Chevy trailblazer is stuck in 4L. I can't get the transfer case into anything else. There is no voltage change at the transfer case actuated.

you may have a bad switch or actuator is bad, try switching the gears and testing power at the actuator, the most common problem with this would be the switch and somtimes the actuator.

Crackling noise from transfer case

What you may be hearing is the wheel bearings instead of the transfer case. I had this problem with GM before and found it to be the wheel bearing was bad. I know it is not what you think, but it would be an easy thing to check first.

I have a 97 chevy tahoe and the 4x4 wont lock in i just replaced the actuator and it just blinks on 4x4 . i do have 12 volts @ the harness to????

Your transfer case could be locked up. Try pulling the shifter motor (servo) off of the transfer case and manually shifting the vehicle into 4x4. Make sure to block the wheels as it will roll if you shift into neutral. If you cant shift it, you need to have a professional look at the insides of your transfer case.
