Question about 1998 Chevrolet Blazer

1 Answer

Goes into 4-wheel drive when it is turned on

Once in awhile when I start my Blazer it seems to be running rough/sluggish. When I look at the dash I see that it has slipped in to 4-wheel drive.

I am the only driver and it just happens. I set it back to normal and it is fine for another few months.

Any thoughts?

It could be a junk switch or it could be bad contacts inside the transfer case motor.. Does the transfer case switch to the selected gears? Everytime? If so, you might try another switch. If it does the same, I would say the motor contacts are bad. Replace the motor if you want the lights, But I personally wouldn't do it until the motor quit switching gears. They're not cheap.

1995 blazer 4wheel drive not always working

on the transfer case area there should be a relay to tell it to go in to 4x4. now once you put a blazer in 4x4 and no longer need the 4x4 En-gauged you will need to put the blazer in revers and back up 10 to 15 feet to get it out of 4x4 before driving.

Loss of power and drive but engine is still running

The water bubble under the dash might be a heater core, and the slow and sluggish might be caused by the transmission, try checking the wires and plugs, they may need to be replaced, we just changed out the wires and plugs on ours and it did wonders!
