How to change 4x4 actuators on a 1995 chevy k1500 truck. I've located 1 out of 2 actuators but the second one appears to be in the transfer case maybe? HELP

I had this problem in the middle of nowhere. On the passenger side of the front differential, there is a "thermal Actuator" that screws into the diff. This is what engages the front axle. I replaced mine and 4 wheel works again. Don't know about a second. Be sure to remove the wire connector before removal or your wiring connector.

I got a 96 chevy 4x4 and my front wheels aren't pulling. i replaced the acuator and still nothing. everything sounds like it is engaging but no turning of the front wheels. do 96 models have auto locking...

96 chevys have a ifs (independent front suspension) this give it more ground clearance but does not have lock out hubs, the cv axles go into the front differential an spin freely until you put it in 4wd, how this works is your transfercase spins the drive shaft that goes into the front differential an while you put it in 4wd it sends power to the actuator to lock the front differential. if your front end isnt pulling you either popped your 1 of your cv axles but if you did this you would know because it makes a very loud thunking noise while you're driving, my guess is you have a short thats not sending power to the actuator. check to see if the wiring harnesses are connected and check if the fuse that operates the 4wd in the cab of the truck is not blown. also actuators for these trucks are horrible they go out alot

I have a 93 chevy z71. I can't get the auto locking hubs to lock. My transfer chase works. But when i try to shift it into 4hi or 4low the 4x4 fuse in the fuse box will blow

The actuator down on the front axle is probably stuck, or shorted internally. You can prove this by unplugging the actuator (it's down by the diff. on the front axle) then try a new fuse and see if it still blows, there is a short in the wiring, if not it is the actuator causing the short.

4 wheel drive dont work you can hear it lock in but dont get anything out of tha front chevy 1995 z71 silverdo

Check your wire harness to your front axle actuator. The front actuator is electrical and common for the wire harness or the actuator it self will go bad and will need to be replaced. You can pick up a new actuator at Napa and GM has a new updated front axle actuator which is more reliable then the oil one that is used in your K1500.

Front diff does not engage on my 95 chevy k1500 4x4 .the actuator is new.what do i do?

first make sure the new actuator is gettin' power. Do this by placing your hand on it while someone engages the 4-wheel drive. Then try cleaning your vacuum actuator valve and vaccuum lines leading up to it for possible holes.

4wd not engaging

Is it a two wire actuator or a three wire actuator? The two wire ones are pretty unreliable. that is why Chevrolet converter them to the three wire. Check for power and ground on the two wire in 4wd. For the three is should have one ground wire, one wire that is hot in 4wd, and one wire that is hot in 2wd.

My chevy k1500 4x4 problem

It is called a thermostatic actuator; you can purchase one at most auto part stores or at the dealership. I have also seen a manual cable replacement kit that bypasses the thermostatic unit.
