Agree with drgriffth03, yes usually when you have an electric 4 wheel drive engage and it doesnt throw in, it usually is a vacuum leak some where. if you cant find it you could always get it smoke tested to find where it leaks.

Tyler,
This same thing happened on mine about a year ago. Underneath the battery is a vacuum diaphram. You have to take the battery and the metal pan the bateery sits on out. My line just slipped off. I heard this was pretty common.

4wheel drive won't work


First check the fuse located in fuse box under hood. The most common problem is in the push-button switch located in the dash. I am a 67 year old female and fixed my boyfriend's 4WD in under 1/2 hour last week-end. You can order a new switch on eBay for under $40.00. Adjust steering wheel to lowest position and pull shift lever all the way down. Remove dash bezel from around gauges and switch (it just pops loose). This takes a little time getting it off from around steering column, etc. Just be gentle and patient. Snap out old switch, unsnap wiring, replace with new switch, snap in, replace dash bezel and you're done! There is a video on uTube showing steps. His 4X4 works perfect now and I get to tease him Double benefit. This was on a 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500. Let me know how it goes. Good Luck! -Marilyn

Does the vehicle have to be in neutral when you put it in 4 wheel drive, or what is the proper way to engage the 4 wheel drive


it has to be running and in neutral to engauge the 4x4. shift to neutral,then push the 4x4 option that you want. 4wheel high you can use almost any sensible speed.4wheel low is only for low speed 15 to 20mph is best for 4wheel low,otherwise will damage engine or transfer case. when you take it out of 4x4 it has to be in neutral also. thank you for choosing fixya.com

My 1997 chevy blazer does not have a 4wheel drive switch


If there is no switch present then it is full time 4X4, it does not disengage, good for travel bad for fuel mileage.
