It could be the switch motor if it is manual then it could be a bad transfer case either way you can check buy simply crawling under it and try to engage it buy hand

I need a spark plug wire diagram for a 1985 gmc jimmy 350 engine


Most all Chev or GMC v8 engines use the firing order of 1-8-4-3-6-5-7-2. You have to find where #1 is on the distributor cap which is usually closest to #1 cylinder then looking toward the back of the engine go clock-wise to install the rest. Don't get too close to the headers. Plastic melts!

NO 4X4, TRANSFER CASE ENGAGES BUT FRONT DIFFERENTIAL NOT WORKING


There is a vacuum line that goes to the transfer case.if this line is ruptured it will not engage the 4wd.Next there is a switch on the t-case that may not be working.In 4wd it supllies vacuum to the 4wd actuator that is under the battery tray.next the applied vacuum pulls the cable engaging the frontaxle.
