SOURCE: 4x4 wont work

If you can have the codes scanned in your vehicle it would be very helpful to you. If you have a code for the encoder motor sensor or the encoder motor itself on the side of the transfer case, this is where i would begin, quite common with the push button 4 wheel drive. Thanks for using fixya!! good luck

SOURCE: 99 Silverado 4-wheel drive not engaging

It does not seem that sufficient diagnosis was done. No, you cant give a specific diagnosis like that without tearing unit down. It's likely that they told you the most common failure and left it at that. Likely there is a problem with your unit...I think this becomes more of a trust issue than a mechanical one. A second opinion from an independent reputable shop may help but either way, you need to have it fixed. In not using it much, it makes me wonder how it got worn.
good luck

SOURCE: 01 Chevy Silverado 4 X 4 not working. 4WD light

Having the same exact problem but with my 1999 escalade. Thought it was the actuator bought a new one installed it transfer case would engage but front end wouldnt lock. Took it out of housing left it plugged in got a friend to go through all the 4wd for me and the plunger never moved out the actuator. Checked my wiring harness which is a four prong ann it had one hot prong like it is suppose to. Traced wires even replaced dash switch same problem. Taking it to local dealership tom to have it checked for codes. I was told it could be the transfercase actuator even though its workin that actuator is what sends power to the front to engage the actuator to lock the differential.

SOURCE: 4 wheel drive will not engage front axle.actuator

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.

Could be the axle trying to engage or it could be in the transfer case. Suggest you put it on stands all around and have some one listen underneath for exact location while engaging it.

Noise when in 4 x 4


Bad news... It sounds like you have a broken/stripped axle. I would start at the wheel and start disassembling from the outside in. It may just be a stripped spline in the spindle.

4 wheel drive


on the right side of differential there's an axle tube that goes to the right side half shaft, the 4wd actuator is on top of that tube, i believe in 93 it is still freon charged so it can go away slowly and when it is cold, just unplug the wire and unscrew, you can update to an electric actuator, but on some models you need to grind the axle tube a little
