I had the same issue with my truck, the switch was the problem.

I solved my issue by process of elimination which started with the switch,,, easiest thing to replace first.

4wd wont switch out of 4 hi if it does goes to


Most likely the actuator motor on the transfer case or the switches in the dash,very rarely have I replaced the module under the dash!!

Hope this helps,Have a Nice Day!

PS From my experience it's probly the actuator motor.

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi


It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.
