SOURCE: 4wd not engaging

These trucks are famous for the transfer case control module failing
and causing problems like you are experiencing. The module is
usually located in the passenger foot well kick panel. You should
be able to find it easy since that is what is making the clicking noise
when you try to go into 4x4. When you find it-unplug the 2 connectors
and looks for green corrosion on the terminals in the plug and also on
the module. They are famous for water intrusion thru the heater system. If you find corrosion, terminals in the connectors will need to
be replaced as well as a new module(they are expensive).

SOURCE: service 4WD light illuminates on the dashboard message box

this is most commonly a electrical problem, does the speedometer read out correctly? if not it may be depending on if this is a Autotrak model, one f the two speeed sensors, or the acuator on the front diff, put the truck in 4wd, check the front dirveline to make sure it is engaing, if not your problem is in the t-case, if it does then move to the tires, if they are not engaged you have a problem with the actuator.

in most cases i have found the actuall 2wd 4wd switch to be the problem if you find that the switch is acting slow or you need to select the gear a few times before it shifts, then replace it these are very faulty

Suburban 4 hign does not work but 4 lo does


I have had maybe 9 Suburbans, over the years. Whenever I put in 4WD (whether Lo or Hi), I drive
normally. THEN, when DISENGAGING, I always drive the vehicle in REVERSE maybe 75 yards
AFTER placing in 2WD mode. Sometimes, still, on my '96 Suburban, --- even though the manual says NOT REQUIRED, it will "stick" in 4WD, UNLESS I take above action. Hope this might help.
