2000 chevy suburban stuck in 4 lo anyone out that cant help


Put truck in Neutral while key in run position engine off or on (doesn't matter which). If it's pushbutton 4wd then try hitting 4low again. if that doesn't work some of the chevy trucks required you to press 4hi to get into 4high and then press 4hi again to get back to 2hi, unless yours has a 2hi button. In that case press 4hi to get into 4high and then press 2hi to get back to 2wd. either way you need to be in neutral to get out of 4lo. I have shift on the fly (Mechanical Shifter on floorboard for transfer case) on my 1990 Suburban and still have to put it in neutral to get out of 4lo. Good Luck.

My 1997 GMC Sierra lights for 4hi and 4lo blink when i push the 4hi button and then goes back into 2hi. but when i push 4lo it locks in and works fine. I tried changing the 4wd motor on the transfer c


THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR IS ONLY FOR 4WD LOW. That would have never been the problem as soon as you confirmed it shifted into 4wd Low. 2wd and 4 Hi work off of vacuum. You may have one or two issues. A vacuum leak up by the front axle that engages the 4wd HI or the sensors on the transfer case.

Silverado wont shift back to 2wd.


What you have to do is go to a service shop and get the codes from the transfer case control module.This will help you find out what is causing the shifting problem.When the technician gets the codes there is a trouble chart that is followed to find the problem.Weather it be a sensor,wiring,switch,or wiring problem.This would be the best way to fix the vehicle other wise you are just throwing parts at it and this can be very costly.Unless you know someone with a scanner and a service manual this would help.Hope this helps.Let me know what you find out.Good luck.

Wont shift out of 4lo to any other 4hi or 2hi what can i do


Shot in the dark but I have done this before! Back up at least 50 yards in reverse with the selector set to 4wd Lo come to a stop, put your transmission in neutral, shift the 4wd selector to 4wd hi wait for a few seconds, shift it to 2wd hi wait a few seconds then put your tranny back into drive and see if that takes it out of 4wd. Good luck

I have a 2001 GMC Sierra Pickup that has electronic 4WD that will not engage. If you press the buttons to enter from 2HI to 4HI, 4LO, Etc. the choice of the button changes (lights up) but the truck does...


fullyjr.

Engaging from 2WD - 4HI/Lo requires movement of the vehicle. very low speed under 5mph, push button should engage. the vehicle has to be moving.

2002 Chevy Silverado clunking noice when shift from 2wd to 4hi


It is somewhat Normal Depending on how Loud the Clunking is. This is a Common Complaint on the Chevy 4x4's. I have verified this through the Dealerships here in Oklahoma and they all say the Same thing But, I am with you, They should go into 4x4 without that Clunk for as much as we pay for them.

My 98 chevy blazer won't shift into 4wd.


Most common problem is the vacuum diaphragm that is so inconviently mounted UNDER the battery tray.The cable that locks in the front diff is attached to it and vacuum pulls it in/out.

4wd stuck in 4Lo


it is either the control switch or the actuator. look if light is flashing on push button switch. if so it is stuck. you can check actuator on front axle, to watch and see if it is moving.
