4wd not engaging. Check actuator and seems to working properly. Jacked front end up and and when in 4wd the front tires spin freely. Any suggestions?


Does the driveshaft for the front wheels turn when in 4wd? The actuater might work but the diff lock for the front wheels might have broken. If the front driveshaft does not turn when in 4wd, the transfer case might be the problem.

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 it won't come out of 4LO.


Likely either a shifter position sensor, transmission position sensor, or a differential position sensor. Had same issue w/ my Montero and it ended up being one of the 5 sensors on the transfer case. It was pretty tough to get to, so replaced all 5. That fixed it.

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!
