SOURCE: My 1996 full size chevrolet tahoe will not go into 4wd

check the solenoid on the front differential. i had a similar problem. when i would start to engage 4wd low/high and it would blow the fuse. i replaced the front solenoid and fixed my problem.

the solenoid can be found in the right side of the front differential. costs about $100 at local part store and takes 5-10 to changeout with an adjustable wrench.

On 97 z71 Tahoe will ignition switch make transfer case try to engage with key off

Dose your vehicle have the electronic shift for the transfer case.
If so the TCCM transfer case control module . Could cause this however there is about 40 pages in the manual about what could be wrong with it .
Mine has a shift lever on the floor and I have to tweek it all the time to make it work..
In short you need someone who spificly works on this system its complex but probblely he would know right away what to replace to correct it

this just happened to mine, you have a short some where. then the system doesn't get power the switch does this to tell you something is wrong, probably just a fuse, if its not the fuse, then you may have corrosion on one of your electrical splices. This may need to be brought to a mechanic otherwise

I have a 97 chevy tahoe and the 4x4 wont lock in i just replaced the actuator and it just blinks on 4x4 . i do have 12 volts @ the harness to????

Your transfer case could be locked up. Try pulling the shifter motor (servo) off of the transfer case and manually shifting the vehicle into 4x4. Make sure to block the wheels as it will roll if you shift into neutral. If you cant shift it, you need to have a professional look at the insides of your transfer case.
