sounds like it's the motor is going bad or has a bad connection, try cleaning the connector if there isn't any gunk in the connector, check the manual see if there is a ohmn test you can run on the motor, if not i'd replace the motor.

SOURCE: My 4WD is not working. Whether I put the selector

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
Shut of the truck ( still jacked up, and supported ) remove the vac lines from the IWE. The spring should push the gears in, without the vac line on.
Check the vent line ( tube that is routed into the engine compartment with nothing attached to it ), for blockages.
If the vent line is clear, and with the vac lines off the IWE should be engaged ( both front wheels locked ).
If they lock, the problem is with the IWE solenoid not shutting off vacuum to the IWEs. There is a TSB on the 2004-2006 IWE solenoids, a newer revision has been made, and used from 2007 and newer MYs.

Here is a block diagram of the IWE system

The neutral safety switch should have power to it in start. If switch is good, it will pass power through to solenoid, when in park or neutral.
Evenif it starts, it won't come out of park, with no brake signal. Find out why no power to brake fuse

My 1997 GMC Sierra lights for 4hi and 4lo blink when i push the 4hi button and then goes back into 2hi. but when i push 4lo it locks in and works fine. I tried changing the 4wd motor on the transfer c


THE TRANSFER CASE MOTOR IS ONLY FOR 4WD LOW. That would have never been the problem as soon as you confirmed it shifted into 4wd Low. 2wd and 4 Hi work off of vacuum. You may have one or two issues. A vacuum leak up by the front axle that engages the 4wd HI or the sensors on the transfer case.

Shifting 4x4 4lo


Most likely cause is the encoder motor on the transfer case.

1992 chev blazer tahoe lt.. 4 wheel drive worked last year. Tried to engage it this year for first time and would not go into 4Lo or 4Hi. Was in neutral. Start vehicle and green light on 4wheel option...


not a fuse if you have power to switch,if your 4wheel light does come on and is not blinking,check the little motor on the transfer case,tap it while someone tries the switch,it might just be stuck from not being use,if it doesn't free its self you may need to replace it.

HOW DO I PUT A 1998 GMC JIMMY IN 4 WHEEL DRIVE?, DO I HAVE BE IN "PARK" OR CAN I CHANGE IT INTO 4 WHEEL DRIVE WHILE IM DRIVING?


You should be able to put in 4x4 while in drive less than 35mph. Mine had a switch to turn to engage or dis-engage.

Chevrolet truck 4wd switch blinks


If they are blinking I believe it means that there are fault codes present in the pcm. You need to get the computer scaned to see if there are an codes present. If you live near an Autozone or Checker autoparts they can scan it for free.
