This sounds like the electronic shift controller for the dif. I would get that looked at. Not sure the cost but i am sure they are not that cheap. If the lights are blinking and its not engaging that would be the first place i look.

97 GMC Z71 4X4 Not Locking in


If it's a shift - on - the - fly 4wd, then call your local Chevy truck dealer. There was a recall on the Electronic 4wd on these trucks. (common problem). Try this just for the heck of it. With the truck stopped, put in 4hi/lo, then put it in reverse. Back up slightly, (about 5ft or so) and then put it in drive (or first in a manual trans) and go forward. Did it lock in? If it locks in but won't unlock, try backing up to unlock. Hope this helps.

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.
