Question about 2003 Chevrolet Suburban 1500

Service 4 wheel drive

I drove my 2003 Chevy Suburban yesterday & I heard a noise coming from the back end. At the time it was in automatic 4 wheel drive, so I put it in 2 wheel drive. This morning upon starting my vehicle a message said service 4 wheel drive.

    My 2003 has about 98,000 miles on it. The other day the indicator panel displayed a message with respect to checking the four wheel drive. I have been a little busy and have not had a chance to follow up; this morning the RED light next to the neutral display on the 2 wheel, auto and 4 wheel Hi/Lo switch lit up instead of the typical 2 wheel drive green light.

    Is this serious? The previous entry indicated that driving in 2 wheel drive was ok. Is this the case even if the RED neutral light is on?

This year model has had problems with the "Encoder Motor" Its is a bolt on unit around 300 dollars if you do it yourself. I would just leave it in 2WD for now.

Surburban has gone into four wheel drive and will not come out


you might want to check the gear selector switch that is located on the driver side of the tranny, if the 4x4 is electric and not manual for engagement, selector must read neutral to disengage 4 wheel drive. by experience if you drove it through deep water gear selector switch can get damaged.
