Question about 1995 Chevrolet K1500
It seems that the front axle on my 01 gmc sierra is actuated even when in 2wd, is it possible that the actuator could be stuck in the in position keeping the axles engaged instead of free wheeling? I would have assumed that the actuator would normally fail in the rest position!
W9fro..In1995, and other model years, the actuator used to engage the transfer case into four wheel drive is oil filled with a heating element.
When you select four wheel drive the element heats up, the oil expands and engages the transfer case. Unfortunately if the actuator fails, the truck remains in four wheel drive. GM has an improved actuator so the problem does not repeat.
As always, check the basics, power, grounds and switch at floor select before replacing the actuator.
Also, if the truck is truly stuck in four wheel drive, you can tell by turning the truck in a tight circle. If the front end wants to "bunny hop" it is definitely engaged.
Best of luck, let me know.
