Where is the power source for the 4wd switch on my 94 blazer

I am not getting any power to the 2 button 4wd switch on my 94 blazer. does anyone know where the power source comes from? i have only located the one under the dash and it doesnt have a 4wd fuse anywhere in that fuse box.

    its not getting any power at all. no noise, no clicking, nothing. it is stuck in 4wd now and has been for a week. what puts off the positive power to the switch?

  • Josh Dec 07, 2012

    if it is just a grounding switch, then what causes the light on the switch to light up?

  • Josh Dec 07, 2012

    then what would be the cause of the switch not lighting up? is there another way to disengage the 4wd?

  • Josh Dec 07, 2012

    where is the transfer case control module that controls the 4wd communications coming from the switch?

94 Silverado, not correctly disengaging 4hi

either there is a vacuum leak from the transfer switch to the front axle actuator on the inner fender well--down a cable into the front axle --most likely it got stuck and it's front axle is LOCKED in
? in 2 high is the front axle indicator light on then ---my solution is good ---if not ? did the indicator lights work in 4 hi / 4low ---when you put it back in 2 high the lights should all be off
if it's acting that way and the lights don't work ---I don't know right this minute to tell you --sorry

I despise GM --and Ford ---will no longer them ---nothing nada ever
I have a Blazer ---my opinion completely faulty from the factory --everything
97 Ford Taurus SHO yamaha aluminum racing 3.4V8---no dealer --27 straight is "not allowed by ford" to change the oil even ---But Lexus will I find that silly -but kudos to lexus --Thanx

just traded off my 74cj5 jeep

I have a 94 S10 Blazer four wheel drive push button.My vehicle will not come out of 4hi or 4low.When I push the button for it to go out of 4hi or 4low I hear noise somewhere but it does not come out.Do you...

I had this on my 2002 blazer (4wd 4dr 6cyl) about a year and a half ago. I found two things out. First, have to try shifting out of 4lo while in neutral with foot on the break. It seemed to work better while on a small incline (like waiting to put the boat into the water, not on the ramp but the somewhere shortly before ramp).
I finally decided to try to replace the neutral safety switch after much reading online. It worked and has worked perfectly since then. The shops I took it to told me to put in a whole new motor for about $600. I think I got the safety neutral switch for about 50ish. I have a pit in the garage so it was pretty easy to get under the truck to the transmission and remove the existing switch board. I then just attached the new one and plugged 'er in.
Hope it helps, good luck.

I need to know where the actuator for 4wd on a 95 blazer gets its vacuum from.. anyone know where it runs to?

well the vacume starts from the engine, goes down to transfer case, then back up to actuator, then i believe back down to transfer case, than to switch.

99 Blazer-push button 4wd not working

Make sure that all 4 tires have the same tread on them, if one or more of them are different, then the 4wd may not engage. I had the same problem with my blazer, I changed only 2 tires at a time. The front tires would rotate faster than the rear ones, the gears in the transfer case won't line up right.
