If you have been driving in 4WD on hard surface then there will be torque wind up that has put pressure on the selector and gears and it will not slip out until the torque is released . Try driving with a set of tyres on a surface that allows the tyres to slip or jack up a wheel to allow the torque to go.

SOURCE: my 2002 chevy silverado 4x4 will not disengage

The issue is usually loaded gears. The secret is to try circles, one way and then the other. This preload is why 4x4 is supposed to be used on loose surfaces....The gears will disengauge after they unload.

SOURCE: I have a slapping noise in the front differential on my '96 yukon when the 4 wheel drive is disengaged. It is a manual pull 4x4 not push button. Any guesses?

Slapping sounds like a transfer case chain

Why wont my 2001 jimmy go into low 4x4 and wont come out


I had a similar issue. In my case, the cause was a faulty electronic 4x4 switch, that is, the small unit with the push-buttons in the dashboard you push to engage or disengage the four-wheel drive. Replacing the switch fixed the issue.

It could probably be many different things, so I can't say for sure that this will solve your specific issue. It's probably worth checking out, though.

My gr is stuck on 4x4 and won't go to 2wd


Usually if you push the button to go back to 2 wheel drive and back up a few feet it will let the axle hub disengage.

If that's a model where you push a "4x4" button to engage it then it's
probably a defective motor that engages/disengages your transmission
from the transfer case. It's bolted onto the transfer case just like a
starter is bolted. Yes, the 4x4 light will sometimes mislead you by
going on or off when you push the button.
Ford charges an arm and leg for their replacement but an aftermarket
one runs about $90 from rockauto.com. Make sure you get any electrical
documentation for this motor to show you how to set up the connections
for your particular vehicle......Ray

If its a push button 4x4 take it to the shop its a VERY COMMON Problem dealing with the electric.Once you pay the $400 to get it fixed get rid of the truck and settle for a Jimmy/Blazer/Bravada with a floor shift 4x4..GM had problems with the push button 4x4.DONT DRIVE YOUR TRUCK IN THE MEANTIME.YOU WILL BLOW YOUR TRANSFER CASE RIGHT OUT OF IT!

1996 Ford F150 4X4 won't shift into low range


I am not sure about Ford, but several of the 4x4 models use a vacuum hose connected to engine vaccum to switch the 4x4 functions. If you have a push button engage system then you may want to check the rubber hoses around the front drive shaft. This only applies for the push button models.
