Seems like it engages in gear fine but will not go in 2 wheel drive. but does fine in 4. Could something be wrong with tranny or just a bad rear end?


check linkage or cable at transfer case, it may need adjusting. if not.its the transfer case that needs attention. check all lines to transfer case. God-Bless! The vacuum lines from engine if needed.

Service awd light comes on and off awd doesn't work when light is on


You need to check wiring an connectors at the transfer case shift control module an check power an grounds at the module ! If all seams good there a scan tool will need to be hooked up to check for codes ! If none of this makes no sense or you don't under stand any of this you need to take it to someone who does !

I have a leak in the transfer case, just had the shop replace so seals in the engine and now they say transfer case is leaking shouldn't that have been checked then?


the engine and transfer case are to totally different monsters your transfer case controls the four wheel drive if your engine was leaking oil and they replaced some seals most likely they seen grease and oil on the transfer case and assumed it was leaking from the leaking engine that is directly above it even if you dont use the four wheel drive I would still sugest getting that fixed because the axles still turn inside there and you dont want those bearings drying up and going bad

Transfer case jumps out of gear


sounds like a servo or sensor problem more than a transfer case. try removing all electrical plugs to t case run it through the gears then replace one by one to see if there is a problem there.

I drive a 1991 toyota v6 camry le and i can find out why it doesnt have any power (slow acceleration speeds) the RPMs go up to about 5k and still cant feel the acceleration in it.


1. If you have the check engine light on then the emission control could be doing this because of bad oxygen sensor(s).

2. Check the transmission fluid. If the level is low then the transfer case would not transfer all the power from the engine to the transmission.

Service Engine soon light and Service AWD ligths are on, also the abs light


ABS light is on due to a bad or dirty ABS sensor on the front wheel hub. Inspect the front wheel ABS sensor and wire leads on the front wheel inner hub where the speed ring is. At worst it's going to be a bad electronic Actuator at the transfer case or one of the speed sensor at the transfer case, but most likely it's going to be the vacuum switch if you don't have any check engine light on.

I suggest visit autozone or dealer for scanning and know exactly the fault code.

Hope helped.

2000 bravada, abs light on, all fuses are fine, any ideas, and can this be linked to accuator, as 4 wheel drive will not disingage


ABS light is on due to a bad or dirty ABS sensor on the front wheel hub. Inspect the front wheel ABS sensor and wire leads on the front wheel inner hub where the speed ring is. The 4wd will not disengaged is common when the vacuum switch on top of the transfer case drives side has gone bad and needs to be replaced, you can pick one up at Auto Zone or Napa for around $25.00 and take about 20 min to replace with a wrench. At worst it's going to be a bad electronic Actuator at the transfer case or one of the speed sensor at the transfer case, but most likely it's going to be the vacuum switch if you don't have any Check engine light on. Good luck and keep me posted.

Transfer case wont engage


shift into 4wd and move truck a couple of feet.
if light is still off, park truck block the wheels set the park brake jack right front wheel and try to hand spin the wheel if wheel doesn't turn 4x4 is functioning properly but there is a wiring problem use an ohmmeter to check the 4x4 switch wiring fuse and bulb
if wheel turns freely the front axle or transfer case is not engaged
attempt to hand spin the front driveshft if the driveshaft will spin the transfer case is not engaged check the transfer case shift linkage, problem is in linkage or transfer case internals
if the driveshaft will not spin the transfer case is engaged properly
with trnsmission in neutral or park start engine measure vacuum on the two vac lines at front axle shift motor . one line should have approx 20" vacuum. other line should have none
if no vacuum measured look for vac leak or bad vac switch
if both lines have vac look for a bad vac swithc or ruptured cad actuator diaphragm
if one line has 20" +- VAC
move transfer case lever to 2wd measure vac again lines should have swapped vac signals
if no vac switch bad or 4wd shift likage needs adjusting
if yes vac motor bad or stuck or shift fork stuck
remove vac shift motor from the axle attach vac lines to shift motor engage disengage 4wd
does shift motor plunger move at least 1/2 inch
no shift motor bad
yes check axle shift fork and vac motor for binging

Transfer case motor for push button 4x4


i have a 1993 blazer 4.3 w code 4x4 with a 4L60 E . my truck wouldn;t go in 4 hi or low. so i changed the transfer case motor and it works fine now. If you turn the ignition key to on but not crank the engine and open the driver door and push 4 hi button, you should hear the transfer case motor cycle for 3 or 4 seconds every time you push button and the light will flash until it goes in 4wd If the 4 hi button light doesn't flash during cycle then it could be a bad switch. if the transfer case motor won't cycle it could be a fuse or a bad transfer case motor . Hope this answers your question.
