Is it starting out in 2nd. too? If so you may have a blown fuse or you tore some wires off. If the trany loses it's electrics it will go into the limp home mode. It will only have 2nd. and reverse. GM vehicles do the same thing.

Try jacking up one side of the front and putting it on a jackstand. Then turn key on(but dont start it) and put it in 4hi. Try to spin the tire in the air. The drive shaft should not turn nor the wheel. If the wheel does then maybe the acuator is not moving in the axle. It worked when you pulled it out but it might be hanging up on something in the axle.

Had the very same problem . It is the actuator pod under the battery tray. You have to remove the battery and battery tray and it is located under it. 3 screwsand one vaccum line. Part is about 50$ at the parts house

SOURCE: 4x4 quit working

Jack up the rear wheels and put it on jack stands. Have someone get in it and put it in 4wd and drive. Release the brake. Rear wheels are spinning only right. Don't get under it but look under it and see if the front driveshaft is spinning. If the shaft is spinning but the wheels aren't it is likely a bad front axle actuator. If the front shaft isn't spinning it is a transfercase problem.

WERE YOU in auto 4wd or 4hi? sometimes vehicles will pop out of 4wd in reverse the auto mode detects slip going forward not backwards so if in auto tes it will have problems in reverse.

Mudding 4x4


This is because the 1500 series is considered light duty regardless of whether it is 2x4 or 4x4. When you add the large mud tires and wheels to the vehicle, that alone stresses the hubs and transfer cases. Add in the overevvving and sudden start-stop jolts of mudding, and you have all the making of drive train failure. If you want to play big boy games, get big boy equipment.

I have a 1989 chevy 1500 4x4 manual transmission i locked it in 4 wheel drive and then i had to shut it off and now its stuck low first and wont come out of granny gear low firzt


any stress or strain on the 4by4 will hold the shifters from moving...need to find a level spot..and rock the truck back and forth to find a "wek spot" where the shifters will move..also unlock the front end if possible..good luck..

How do i install mud flaps 12wx22h inches on my 2011 ram 1500 thanks in advance


That depends on the design of the mud flaps. Typically they have holes in the top for sheet metal screws. Look for any existing sheet metal screws in the fender wheel behind the wheel that match with the holes in the flaps - you can just remove those, put the mud flap up and put the screw back in if it is long enough (if the mud flap doesn't have a metal strip across the mounting edge, you'll need a large washer under the screw head to distribute stress across the material or it will crack).
If you don't have matching holes, you'll have to drill them. If you are going into steel, use a bit sized for the shank of the sheet metal screw, or just drill the screw in directly. After you get the screw in, take it out and fill the hole with rust-protecting sealant, then put the screw back in. If your mounting hole is on fiberglass or plastic, use a nut and bolt with fender washers under both the screw head and the nut. I recommend either stainless steel or cadmium plated hardware for corrosion protection; this is a harsh environment.
If you don't have a straight surface for mounting the mud flap, you may have to bend a heavy galvanized steel strap with holes in it (perhaps a pipe hanger) to make a mounting bracket. Attach one end to the vehicle as described in the previous paragraph, and attach the mud flap to it.
I would expect a new mud flap set would include the necessary hardware to adapt it to different vehicles. If you've already purchased a new set without any of this material, you can look at some of the other sets on the market for ideas on mounting brackets. The exact method you use is not critical, so long as it holds the flap without breaking anything (consider the stresses from flapping back and forth and try to envision where the greatest stresses and material fatigue would be), and is reasonably protected from corrosion.

How do I operate the 4x4? It works but I dont know how to put it to use..


okay the truck must be at a stop and shifter in neutral then you can shift into 4wd, this is for snow or wet conditions but more for snow and ice, the 4wd low is for lets say you are stuck in snow or mud this is to get you out its for low speeds only or climbing a hill in mud or snow, not to often is the 4wdlow used.and then 2wd is for all driving conditions, the thing is the 4wd needs some slippery conditions for example driving in 4wd on dry roads puts alot of pressure on the trany drivetrain and the transfer case, the wheels need to slip sometimes to give way in 4wd, hope this helps good day.

I have a gmc sierra 1500 4wd. when I engage the 4wd and go to make a turn I hear a loud popping noise. In 2wd it does not do this. Is something wrong with the transfer case?


Alot of people are having this problem. A locked 4x4 while turning on a dry or wet surface will do this, unless it is snow or mud which allow the wheels to slip the front wheels bind and buck,clunk. Now if this is not the case then check the CV joints, jack front wheels off ground, one at a time is fine, grab wheel and wiggle all around and see if tire feels loose as it might be a bad wheel bearing hub also. I don't believe there is anything wrong with the ,transfercase. I have owned 4x4s for 31 yrs ranging from 1967 - 2003, mostly chevy (gmc) ford, and 1 dodge ram. 9 out of 10 times it is front hubs,pinion,front driveshaft. Transfercases either work or they don't,and if they don't its because it's broke and your not driving.

How does my 4x4 push button locker work in my 1989 chevy K1500?


That depends a lot on how your truck is equipped. GM uses several different 4 wheel systems including AWD, Part-Time 4WD, Full-Time 4WD, and ON-Demand AWD. Then there is another version used on some trucks that is a combination of 4WD and On Demand AWD. - it gets a little confusing but each system as slightly different charachteristics.

Genericly speaking, if you have the push-buttons on your dash that say "4-HI", "4-LO", and "2HI" and/or Auto-4WD , the transfer case has an electronicly-controlled stepper motor which shifts the transfer case into the selected mode. An electric solenoid/actuator then engages/disengages the front differential for 2-Wheel or 4-Wheel modes. One push of the button and it shifts the transfer case and engages the front differential.

That's much easier than the old days when you had to stop the truck, get out (Sometimes in the middle of a big mud hole) and lock the front hubs then get back in and play with the lever in the floor to get the transfer case to shift into the desired mode.

Front tires not spinning while in 4wd on 1999 chevrolet


Sounds like your front actuator in the axle is not working..What you can do for now instead of buying a new one is remove the front actuator.It is a threaded in unit.Take a crescent wrench and remove it.Next find a big nut or bolt to put inside of it.Once you have it off you can jack the front end up put your finger inside of the hole where actuator goes.Rotate the front tires back and forth and till you can push the tab inside in.That will lock the front end .And the reason your putting the bolt or nut in there is to take up the space the actuator would normally would Push in..Remember your front axle is always going to be lock and you will still be able to unlock it with the push button.After you put the bolt in the hole screw the actuator back in.This will hold the bolt and keep your axle locked.........
