SOURCE: Clunking from front end in 2WD
ASE mechanic here:
check the king pins in the front end and the u joints for any kind of play. sounds like front end play while four wheel drive is engaged and stills is affected for a while when two wheel drive is activated. this year truck most definitely has a manual four wheel linkage that could be the problem too. try lubing up any moving linkage and i would shift it in neutral. keep me posted

There is a motor on the rear of the tranny that switches this. check the plug and it is easy to remove the motor and test its operation. then there is a keyway that you can easily turn with a small blade screwdriver...., Odd but there are no vacuum hoses going to the transmission... OH rats unless it is an automatic... but still the 4WD shifting is electrical..

you are right, there is no option to only run an actual 2 wd, and yes it will engage into 4 wheel under a acceleration, but it shoulnt engage under a normal take off but if you step on it it will engage. I"m getting to the point of selling this truck for this reason among many others, my 2003 yukon xl 4x4 doesn't have half the garbage and engineering idiocy this truck has. And listening and reading all these troubles i can't take it anymore. I also have some issues with mine but i'm not gonna put anymore time and money into this.

this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating
that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of
lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected
a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM,
SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You
must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool
and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System
