SOURCE: 4x4 wont engage
There is a switch that has twwo wires going to it, it's located just above the motor on your transfer case,on the drivers side, one plug goes to the motor and the other goes to this switch, it's the motor that shifts it into low and high range, I'm not sure what the switch is called but it tells the front end when to lock and unlock.
Hope it helps

I had the same problem on my 90 K1500, it was the 4 wheel drive actuator unit itself. Bout it at the local parts store for 30 bucks and installed it in 10 minutes or less - and vavoom! 4 X 4 back in business.

On the front axle of your Suburban there is a thermally (an internal heater) activated devise that pushes on a lever to engage the axle. There is a technical service bulletin ( #76-43-01A) on this problem but the repair isn't cheap.It involves installing an updated devise with a DC motor from General Motors which also requires a new wire harness.
I have found that installing an aftermarket one (available at your local autoparts store) that just bolts on will work just as well.
It just threads in to a housing and is very easy to replace.

Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace
