I replaced the swith, very easy, takes 2 minutes. The dash pops off from left to right pull gently don't force it. Comes apart easy, switch just as easy.

I would try to replace the switch. I believe that chevy had a bunch of problems with the 4x4 switch. I had a message on the display the something was defective with the 4 wheel drive, and it just ended up being the darn switch. Hope this helps.

2005 chevy silverado 4wd emc wiring harness for purge valve solenoid


I am having the same thing. I talked to a guy tonight said take the fuse block under the hood, and flip it. Look at the right side section, bottom left corner a thin red wire was burnt up inside the connectors. His friend works for the dealership told him where to look. Said so many of thesetrucks have this issue but Chevrolet wont do the recall. He also said check them all just in case. It wont cost you anything but a little bit of time. I'mchecking mine tomorrow. I had my transfer case rebuilt, new pushbuttons, new tccm, new transfer case motor, and still nothing. My next step was a auto electrical shop. I truly hope this helps because I know your pain. And stress.....oh the stress

I have a 1995 chevy silverado, my 4wd dont work, the fuse is good, the front shaft dont turn when in 4wd, thats what i chect sofar. also light on floor shift dont light up. it flashed a bit and now it...


look on your front diff there should be a large nut on the passenger side with 3 wire coming out of it that is your 4wd actuator for your front end more thank likely this is your problem takes 2 minutes to fix and probably cost you $30 at your local parts store

I don't know the color codes for this but you should have one hot all the time and both hot when pedal depressed. No hot, check fuses, one hot with pedal depressed, switch.

THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR IS NOT WORKING TO INGAGE 4 WHEEL DRIVE. CHECK WITH DOOR OPEN WHEN YOU PUSH 4 WHEEL SWITCH YOU SHOULD HEAR MOTOR INGAGE 4 WHEEL DRIVE. IF YOU HEAR MOTOR BUT STILL NO 4 WHEEL DRIVE THE GEAR ON MOTOR COULD BE DAMAGED. REPLACE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR.

4 wheel drive service light is on, wont engage into 4 wheel drive and the indicator lights wont come on, what do i do?


On the full size, the front actuator is electric, not vacuum.

When in 4wd mode, a switch on top of the transfer case conducts 12 volts out to the actuator. Wire #50 (brown) is the 12v feed, and it conducts to the light blue wire (#900) to the actuator.
When shifted out of 4wd, the switch opens up and no voltage goes to the actuator.

Check voltage at the connector for the front actuator (at the front differential - it looks like a large bullet that threads into the front diff.) If it has 12 volts, the actuator is the problem. If it does not have 12 volts, check the transfer case switch and the power feed to the transfer case.

I'll assume it is the actuator, if the plug to the actuator is getting 12 volts when in 4wd.
The way this actuator works, is it is a sealed chamber that gets heated by voltage. When it heats, the pin in the end swells and pushes a shift fork in the front differential. The shift fork engages a spline on the passenger side of the differential, and boom! you have 4WD.

GM offered an upgrade to this actuator that is a motor instead of a heated device. However, it requires a small harness addition, a spacer, and a new actuator. It is about a $150 to $200 option.

If I were you, I would buy a new heated actuator. They are available at most auto parts stores, and are about $90. They are also on eBay for about $55 plus shipping. These are very easy to change - just thread out the old one, and thread in a new one.

Good luck, That actuator is usually the problem 90% of time but check the fuse first in your fuse box.

4wd wont work


You need to get it scanned for codes, if you have a B2725 then you have a 4WD switch problem, otherwise the fault is probably in the transfer case control module.
