I have a 1997 Chevrolet 1500 2wd the transmission wont shift into over drive but it will shift through all the other gears. Can you tell me what may be wrong or how to fix it?

some of them, have a switch inside the end center of the shifter! there may be an o on the operator side that lights up when it is not in overdrive mode, and dark when it is in overdrive! it could be a bad relay switch!

Can some explain the proper way to shift from 2wd

4wd auto: you can shift into this mode at anytime. it is good for conditions where you might need 4wd.
4wdhi:: you can shift into this at speeds up to 30mph and both of these back to 2wd while in gear.
4wd lo : stop vehicle and shift truck into nuetral ok to be rolling around 3mph shift into 4lo then put in gear same when shifting back to 2wd

My 1997 jimmy will **** itself into 4wd and wont come out.

There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer-case on the driver's side that has gone bad. It's common on out jimmy's and will need to be replaced. Auto Zone or Parts Source will have that part and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing it and take about 15 min to replace. They go for around $25.00 at Auto Zone and $65.00 at the dealers and all you need is a 1 inch open end wrench i believe and patients. It's a tight fit to turn the wrench but you can do it and once loosen, just use your fingers. First disconnect the three vacuum line harness on the vacuum switch and then remove the switch. Once removed, install the new switch and vacuum lines and that's it. Good luck and buy and extra switch and keep it in the glove box. If you push the button for the 2wd, the transfer case will be on the 2wd selection and the front drive shaft will not have any torque to it but the front differential will still be engaged so you can drive it like that till you get a chance to replace the vacuum switch. Good luck and keep warm.
