I suggest you get a manual for your model vehicle, or get a mechanic to do the job. It is a more complex job than one can address here.

If the mount is bad the engine will lift up when you hold the brake and add a little throttle, it will really jump up of the mount is broken, some movement of course is normal.

Service AWD code light is on

Probably bad transfer case "encoder" motor. May be fuse or awd contoller also. Prior to replacing the encoder motor (try "thepartsladi" store on eBay) plug the new motor up to wiring harness at transfer case. Start car, if your light goes out bingo, yet another bad gm encoder motor! Beware aftermarket encoder motors!

AWD service light io on all wheel not working

Probably a bad transfer case encoder motor. Common problem on Bravadas. Also make sure your transfer case uses only "blue" GM Auto Trac II fluid. Flush once after driving a week with "blue" if you don't find "blue" fluid when origianlly checking. Just temporarily plugging a new encoder motor to harness should get the light to go out. Other less likely problem could be bad AWD control module or fuse.

AWD on 2003 Oldsmobile Bravada

possibly, but the most common problem is the engagement motor located on the rear of the transfer case. Motor looks like small wiper motor and can be replace fairly easily.

When I turn sharpling left or right(like parking) there is a binding noise ,but not driving straight or normal speeds. 0there is a binding

this is a verry common problem with the awd bravada a tsb was sent out telling you to change the transfer case fluid to gm tract 2 fluid well let me tell you my story first i am a mechanic of 40 + years i have a 2000 bravada awd i changed the fluid 2 times like the tsb says no fix got a low mile used transfer case instaled it put the trac 2 fluid in it no fix replaced the awd module no fix so i decided to take my old transfer case apart and see what makes it tick i found out that a spring pushes the clutch fork to disingage the front drive shaft clutches the encoder moter applys the fork sending power to the f drive shaft the spring was weak and did not disingage the cluch pack THIS IS AN EASY FIX but you should replace the fluid first if it remains the same then remove the plug in the bottom and i mean the bottom of the transfer case cant miss it it looks like a tall bolt when you remove the plug a spring will come out with it i shimed my spring about a 1/4 inch PROBLEM GONE i tested this on my old transfer case on the bench first and it worked fine i also tryed streching the old spring that did not work maybe replacing the spring with a new one might also work also i would think a new encoder motor might return to rest easer then an old one this spring is what returns the encoder motor and pushes the clutch pack to 2wd

AWD on 2K Bravada not working. Service AWD light is on.

Probably encoder motor on transfer case. Try "thepartsladi" store on Ebay for low price OEM motor.

1999 olds bravada smart trac four wheel dosent engage

Probably the transfer case encoder motor. Unplugging it at the wiring harness should make the "service awd or smart trac" light come on. This will tell you the awd controller module is probably OK. Common failure item to Bravada's. Try "thepartsladi" eBay store for lowest price motor, beware aftermarket!!! Also make sure transfer case fluid is "blue" GM Auto-Trak II only! If not bllue when checking change twice after driving for a week with blue fluid.

02 olds bravada locked in awd

This is very common. It is the transfer case encoder motor. That controls the shifting of the transfer case. It needs to be replaced. Its not that hard to replace but the part is expensive. You will also need to replace the front drive shaft boot clamps, you have to cut the originals off when removing the front drive shaft. I've replaced many of these for myself and others. Good luck I hope this helps you.
