4wd will not engage in 4HI, 4LO or Auto 4WD


most of the engine power is designed to go to, the back wheels UNLESS the transfer case is in LOCK position in 4 hi or 4 low..also was the front hubs locked in...some models still use lockouts in front..remember this also.. if most of the weight is up front as it is on pickups, the rear wheels are the least resistance for the power so they will move first unless thers enough weight on top of them say sandbags or firewood or just dead weight...(if the truck is used look under the vehicle to see if the front driveshaft was taken out..some folks do this for fuel economy purposes) good luck repost findings please...thnx

My truck is stuck in 4LO and the button in the truck dont work.


If its a push button 4x4 take it to the shop its a VERY COMMON Problem dealing with the electric.Once you pay the $400 to get it fixed get rid of the truck and settle for a Jimmy/Blazer/Bravada with a floor shift 4x4..GM had problems with the push button 4x4.DONT DRIVE YOUR TRUCK IN THE MEANTIME.YOU WILL BLOW YOUR TRANSFER CASE RIGHT OUT OF IT!

There is a relay switch box under dash. But there is also a vacuum diaphram in the passenger front fender, which operates the front axle, that turns the light on and off along with the cable movement. Also there is a vacuum switch on the transfer case. When you flip the switch it sends the vacuum to the switch on transfer case which allows the vacuum back to the diaphram to pull the front axle cable. I would check for the vacuum lines first.

4WD basic question


The 4-lo is so low that sometimes you really have to push it to go into gear. Put the transmission into neutral, and even let it roll a little bit to get it to slip in easier.

You could try to turn the engine off as well while you're in neutral, and then put into 4-lo.

If it's impossible, I'd have your linkage checked to make sure nothing flew up in there and is stuck and/or it's bent.
