2500 sierra HD 4wd is stuck in neutral. this is a manual shift, not electric. Had been working fine

I was in 4wd HI. I had stopped and put vehicle into 2wd and started to move. it seemed as if it was still in 4wd when i went to turn. It wouldn't let me shift back to 4wd hi so i shifted into neutral. When I tried to go into 2wd it wouldn't let me. All the time I am sitting still. I then applied emergency brake and shifted into 4wd lo, then back into neutral. Still couldn't get into 2wd. Then it wouldn't let me shift into 4wd lo either. This is a manual shifter, not an electronic

Put main gears into 1st.
With a gentle foot on the clutch, you can hold pressure on the selector and slowly bring pedal up so you can 'feel' something moving with the stick. If it doesn't go in first go then 'rock the box' with clutch movement at that sweet spot where it just starts to engage (in and out) and it should drop in.

SOURCE: 4wd will not engage on my 1996 GMC Sierra 1500 pickup

Ok the drive shaft will spin thats good. remove the front driff actuator and see if the plunger extents. if it doesn't check that the power and grond ar ok. If they are then replace the actuator. Just so you know the two actuator may be diffrent. If it has been replaced no problem. If it hasn't ever been replaced then ther is a updated part it come as a kit witha harness spacer and actuator.

Testimonial: "Fixya pointed me in the right direction to find the problem. It was in fact the front actuator which was not expanding. The 4wd is working. Thanks."

My 4x4 is stuck in four wheel low it is shift on the fly and i have already replaced the transfer case motor


Ok here is a long shot but sometimes it will work. Put the 4wd position switch to 4wd Lo, put your transmission in reverse and back up for about 50 yards, stop and put your transmission in neutral, then shift the 4wd to 4wd hi, wait a few seconds and shift the 4wd to 2wd hi, Sometimes the t-case will get stuck and this is how you reset the computer. I have known people that really got their t-cases messed up because they thought that shift on the go meant that they could shift the t-case into 4wd LO while moving but shift on the go is only for 4wd hi the gears will not mesh up fast enough for 4wd LO because the ratio is 1 to 1 . I hope this helps you.

Correct shifting to 4x4 on 1998 chevy 2500 not sure. i will be snow plowing this winter i was told you can shift while driving.or should you stop and put in neutral? thank you.


When shifting to 4wd hi you can shift at anytime.The only time you have to stop or slow down is when your putting it in 4wd low.Does this mean I have to get my snow blower ready?Brrrrrr.

2001 jimmy stuck in 4wd low


Usually when a truck gets stuck in 4 low you need to put it in reverse, start backing up very slowly, put it in neutral (or push in the clutch on manual trans models) and stop the truck with the brakes. this will release the load on the gearing which should allow you to shift out of 4 low.
