2001 GMC Yukon 4 wheel drive problem

Do you know of any common problems with the 4 wheel drive on these trucks? My Serivce 4 wheel drive light is on and the lights on my switch to engage the 4 wheel drive is not lite up any more, and also will not engage.
I've checked the fuses and pulled the switch apart but it is all OK. Is the switch bad you think or another problem?

My 2001 GMC Yukon seems to be stuck in 4 wheel drive. The drive train is binding up when turning on dry pavement. The push button light is on 2hi and the service 4wd light is on. Is there a way to get it...

It may be the front axel actuator moter(on front axel right side) is not disengaging the axel. There is a 4wd
fuse 15amp in the fuse block under the dash, make sure it's not blown. If the fuse is ok, check the connections at the actuator and the transfer case switch. These are the more common causes for the
problem you have. Give these tests a try and let me
know if you want to go to the next level.
Hope this helps. Good luck.

I have a 2001 GMC Yukon that will not shift into four wheel drive. I can hear the click, when I push the button and the light blinks but it will not remain solid and I dont think I should drive it without...

it sounds to me like the motor that switches the transfer case into 4 wheel drive DO NOT try to put it in 4 wheel. There should be no problem driving it as it is but if you continue to try it may get stuck in between and cause major problems

My 4 wheel drive switch would engage my 4+4 wi

If the transfer case is engaging, try it in 4X4 low foot on the brake and other on the gas (power braking) and you can get the rear tires to break loose your 4 wheel drive actuator switch is bad, a common problem on these 4X4's. It is a simple repair and is located on the front differential.
