How to remove upper ball joint on driver side of an 1994 GMC Sonoma


The OEM ball joint is riveted into the upper control arm. There are two possible ways to replace the joint. You can purchase the entire upper control arm/ball joint assembly, which comes complete with the upper control arm bushings. This part costs about $150.00. You will also have to deal with the coil spring when replacing it this way. You can also buy just the ball joint for about $30.00. This will require that you drill out the rivets of the original ball joint and then bolt in the replacement with the bolts that are provided with it. The 2WD and 4WD versions are the same. See this link.

On my 1999 gmc jimmy the lights on 4wd switch are out and 4wd wont engage. the switch is good(tried it in my 2001 Sonoma)and the 2 switches at transfer case were changed still nothing. Any clues?


On my 01 Yukon it was the switch in the dash. I took it apart abd found several bad soldier Joints. I found the same problem in the rear AC controller module. You can buy a new module or take yours apart

4wd problems


How many button's on the dash for the 4X4 ? Any light's lit ? Which transfer case ?
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
Transfer Case - NVG 236/246-NP8 (Two Speed Automatic)
The NVG 233 transfer case features a 3 button shift control switch, located on the instrument panel. When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch, to determine if a new mode/gear position has been selected. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new position begins flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been reached, or has engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position remains ON constantly.
The NVG 236/246 transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the vehicle has the ignition key in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/gear position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position will begin flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp will continue to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been reached, or has been engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position will remain ON constantly.

Both of these 4X4 systems are capable of setting DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

For 4x4 gmc sonoma is the 4 wheel drive light is always supposed to be on


It's only suppose to be on when the 4WD is in use and should be off when in 2WD. If the light is on, replace the 4WD switch on top of the transfer case, drivers side. You can pick up the vacuum switch at Auto Zone, Napa for around $25.00 and is common to fail. When they fail, the vacuum to the front axle hub actuator will stay engaged and the axle will always be engaged. it's a simple fix and should take you 15min to replace if you can get under the Sonoma with out jacking it up off the ground.

Disconnect the vacuum line from the switch and unscrew the switch out from the transfer case with a 3/4 inch wrench i believe. No need to worry about Teflon tape, the switch is tapered and will not leak fluid.

Good luck and thank you for using Fixya.
