You can shift into and out of 4wd hi in any gear even when vehicle is moving. You must stop and put in neutral to shift into or out of 4wd low.
To see if it is working, go to a dirt field or on the beach if one is available. Put truck in four wheel drive, turn steering wheel all the way one way or the other and stick you head out the driver window and look at the front tire and "PUNCH IT". If the four wheel drive is working you will see the front tire spin. Hope this helps.

I just bought a 95 gmc jimmy 4.3 vortec with 4wd and underneather on the frontend differential there is a bar sticking out that is welded to stay out and my jimmy will not go into 4wd at all why and how do...


I don't know what the bar is for, but I can help you troubleshoot the 4wd. I have a 1996 4wd Jimmy. The 4wd didn't work when I bought it. Here is what I found. The vacuum lines at the rear of the engine compartment were soft and gummy and some were rotted. I replaced every vacuum line I could find. Hidden underneath the battery tray is a vacuum operated actuator that engages the front axle. This line was not connected at all. I popped the push button assembly out of the dash to make sure everything was connected and replaced the light bulbs. Installed the switch back in the dash and went for a test drive. Everything is now working as it should. Did the testing on a dirt drive. Never on dry pavement. There are also electrical connectors underneath the vehicle that must be checked. They are attached to switches on the transmission and the transfer case. Let me know if this helps you get your 4wd working again.

My truck is stuck in 4LO and the button in the truck dont work.


If its a push button 4x4 take it to the shop its a VERY COMMON Problem dealing with the electric.Once you pay the $400 to get it fixed get rid of the truck and settle for a Jimmy/Blazer/Bravada with a floor shift 4x4..GM had problems with the push button 4x4.DONT DRIVE YOUR TRUCK IN THE MEANTIME.YOU WILL BLOW YOUR TRANSFER CASE RIGHT OUT OF IT!

1995 gmc jimmy will not shift out of 4wd high


sounds like the vacuum lines are either pinched or the vacuum pump is shot. try getting a mechanic look at the lines on and around your transfer case... also try checking the fuses for the 4wd selector. let me know how it goes

Won't shift into 4 wheel drive mode at all / 2000 GMC Jimmy SLT


I have had the same problem with my 2000 jimmy. Disconnect the battery for approx 1 minute and then reconnect, this should reset the computer. It has worked for me every time. I was told it was a glitch with GMC.
