Hi,
When you switch it from 2H to 4H you can push the switch at any speed but if you switch to 4L the car must be stop and the shifter is in neutral position.
Anyway here is my suggestion.... I would check the switch it self 1st for proper contact, also check the owners manual if there is a fuse for 4X4.
The worse scenario is the 4X4 computer is dead and if you have problem with transfer case you would notice a whining noise.

97 chevy z71 push button 4x4. Want engage. Hear tcase trying then goes back to 2wd. Put new tcase motor still nothing. What could it be


Is the light on the switch "On" in 2wd? If not, I found a bundle of wires on my 96 Suburban that were melted. They were too close to exhaust. Fixed those and everything worked great. There is also a way to push a couple of the buttons and the light will flash a code. Sorry, I don't have that info with me. Might have to google it.
There is also a "control module" kind of box under the dash, driver side, for the 4wd.

No 4x4 when i push the switch on my 97 blazer


I have had this problem before but all I had to do was disconnect the negative battery cable for about 5 minutes and it fixed itself, maybe just a coincidence but it is fixed now.

The 4x4 actuator located on the front axel/tranny transfer case is probably faulty. Make sure the electrical connector that goes to it isn't damaged. Should be a easy fix.
