I have a 1999 bighorn, when i press the 4x4 button on the dash it wont go into four wheel drive no matter what speed or diretion i go in the light just keeps flashing, if it does go in and i press it to...


This is a car with fixed wheel hubs ? not auto or manual locks ?
First test the shifter on the transfer box is ok - just push for 4wd with the car running but not moveing then see if you can shift into low range easy - if you can ,carry on reading if not its the transfer box motor at fault .
You need to check out the vacumme pipes on the valves on the front axle . On the axle you will see an actuator looks like half a dumbell with two pipes on . In 2wd the pipe furthest from the wheel is sucking and it 4wd the one nearest is .
If you dont have this check the vac pipes and the grey and blue solenoid valves - the grey one is a good place to start it sticks .

I have a 2000 GMC jimmy the service four wheel drive light is on I was told it was the four drive buttons were bad switch them out and still has service four wheel drive.


The transfer case may be low on fluid. I know from experience that if the level is too low or too bad the light comes on. Either way I would have it serviced.

Four wheel drive wont engage


If you have push button 4-Wheel Drive, it is recommended that you use it every once in a while, in order to keep gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up on moving parts. The mostly likeley (though not definite) reason would be that you let the 4-wheel drive unused for so long that corrosion has built up on the parts and the actuator that engages the 4-Wheel Drive doesn't have the power to engage it past the corrosion. You'll need to take it in to be cleaned, or to have parts replaced. In the future, every month or so, engage 4-Wheel Drive and drive around in some mud, grass, sand, or any other loose ground for a bit, just to keep the parts moving and clean.

The service Four wheel drive light is to alert the operator the system is not being read properly by the ECU.

If the ECU loses contact with or position of the Transfer case actuator motor the service light will come on. Same thing goes for the front diff actuator.

So it may be a bad switch, sensor, or an actual problem in the 4WD linkage. This is not a Oil Change light that you can ignore a few extra weeks - it indicates a problem that should be taken care of ASAP to avoid costlier problems down the road.

Transfer case fuse blows when engaging four wheel drive.


Hello;
Sounds like yoou have a short either in the switch pod or in the 4wd electrics. Check for pinched wires or bare wires grounding out at the front axle and at the transfer case.
Thanks;

There is an electric motor that engages drive.  Mine was stuck and a mechanic beat it w a hammer while I was in vehicle w brake on in drive pushing the diff 4wd buttons.  It freed up and started working fine!!  It looks like a small starter under car on passenger side. Or buy one on ebay  for cheap and replace it

2001 Chevy Blazer 4 wheel drive


The four wheel drive systems in these vehicles are simple. The push button controls the four wheel drive computer. The computer tells the encoder motor (on transfer case) to shift. When the transfer case shifts there is a vaccum switch on the transfer that is activated which sends vaccum to the accuator under the battery. The accuator pulls a cable to lock the front axle in. This covers all s series trucks and suv's with push button four wheel drive but not with auto or all wheel. Now to answer some questions. If your push button is lit up but will not go in to four high you should try to reset the four wheel drive computer. To reset pull the courtesy light and atc fuses for sixty seconds install fuses then cycle key on and off 5 times. If your transfer case shifts but your front end does not lock in check for vaccum at the switch on the transfer case in and out. If no vaccum out replace switch motormite number 49315 at parts store. If you have vaccum out check accuator.
