I had the same problem with my 99 Jimmy. try to disconnect your battery for about 5 minutes and see what happen. it fixed mine by doing it.

Why wont my 2001 jimmy go into low 4x4 and wont come out


I had a similar issue. In my case, the cause was a faulty electronic 4x4 switch, that is, the small unit with the push-buttons in the dashboard you push to engage or disengage the four-wheel drive. Replacing the switch fixed the issue.

It could probably be many different things, so I can't say for sure that this will solve your specific issue. It's probably worth checking out, though.

97 JIMMY,PUSH 4X4 BUTTON,NOTHING HAPPENS


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.
