This could be several issue. On my 2003, it was 2 of the 5 transfer case switches. It was explained to me that if the sensors get corroded, that the system doesn't know what 4WD mode your truck is in, causing it to lock into that mode. With my 2003, I caught it on a good day and moved my 4WD selector to AWD. That way, I could drive it on dry land as well as have some AWD capability in the rain and snow. It knocked my MPG down, but it worked for me. The cost to replace the 5 sensors (recommend replacing all b/c the labor is high due to having to drop the transfer case to get to the sensors on top) was around $800 at my local import dealer. Twice that price at the Mitsubishi dealer.

2009 Colorado 4x4 38000 miles. 4H wont engage, light wont stop flashing. Replaced the Actuator but still the same problem.


I am sure you already know this but will mention it anyway just for others that read your question. On all of my trucks you can not shift in or out of 4wd low unless transmission (not transfer case) is in neutral and vehicle pretty much stopped. The transfer case for 4wd low is geared so different that system will not change back out of low (or fully into low) unless trans control is telling computer that it is in neutral.

4wd 4wdlow light flashing


Hi there:
That flashing is a signal from the GEM computer that indicates a failure in the Control-Trac system. Typically it is one of the Hall-effect axle speed sensors (located in the t-case) that has failed. In the auto position on your model the system monitors relative front and rear axle speeds, increasing the period of engagement of the clutch pack in the transfer case to eliminate the rear moving faster than the front. If it gets to full-lock, for example, and the rear still seems to be turning faster then it reverts the system to 4WD (locks the transfer case in 4wd as it does in 4wd-lo) and flashes the lights to tell you of the problem (in 97 and later models it reverts to 2WD in the default, auto position). Some have reported cleaning the contacts on the speed sensors has helped, but you may want to get to a dealer if the problem persists. Watch that they dont automatically try to replace the computer or the transfer case. Usually it is just a sensor problem, which is relatively easy and inexpensive to replace. There is a shift motor on the t-case on these models, but it is only used to select 4wd-lo and yours seems to do that OK.

Hope this helps; also keep in mind that your feedback is important and I`ll appreciate your time and consideration if you leave some testimonial comment about this answer.

Thank you for using FixYa, have a nice day.

94 explorer, manual trans. last night while driving, 4x4 and low range lights flash on then off. when I shifted into 5th getting on freeway, lose all drive power as if clutch suddenly went out. 4x4 light...


It sounds like the bearings inside the transfer case are going out, with pressure on it while accelerating its fine, then when you push in the clutch the transfer case gets slack allowing the internal parts to move, causing the lights to flash as gears move causing the shift motor to move. I would start looking for a replacement transfer case.

first the flashing light means that it is trying to go into 4wd. as far as i know there is no adjustment. The shift motor may be bad, If the transfer case is shifting it could be the silinod in the front differantal.

When you press the shift on the fly button s on the dash for 4 wheel drive the light keeps flashing but after 2 or 3 flashes it is suppose to stop. It seem like the 4 wheel drive isn't fully engaging.


If the light is continuing to flash the 4X4 is not engaged, most likely the motor that engages it on the transfer case is either stuck or defective.

1996 Yukon 4X4 Electronic Shift on Fly.


I had the same problem with the shift on the fly push-button 4x4 on my 97 Suburban. GM Shop manual indicates that it could be due to an encoder error on the actuator motor. Try pulling the transfer case fuse to reset the transfer case control module. Wait at least one minute. Re-install fuse then re-try operation. Did it last week and that saved me a trip to the dealership and extensive troubleshooting.
