Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

1 Answer

Should the front drive shaft turn freely when the transfer case is in 2 high on a 2000 GMC Jimmy with auto 4 wheel drive?

Or do the clutches in the transfer case keep constant tension on the front output shaft even in 2 hi? Just want to be sure everything is working as it should. Thanks.

2002 1500 when you manually take the transfer case out of 4 wheel drive, is the front shaft suppose to turn freely


if you have free wheeling front hubs ---yes
if you have auto locking hubs --yes until the hubs lock up
if you do not have free wheeling front hubs ---no as the wheels will turn the drive shaft through the diff

The Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) Front Axle consist of the following components:
• Differential Carrier Housing
• Differential Case Assembly
• Inner Axle Shaft
• Intermediate Shaft Bearing Assembly (located on the right side of the oil pan)
• Electric Motor Actuator
The front axle on Selectable Four Wheel Drive (S4WD) model vehicles uses a disconnect feature mounted on the right side of the oil pan in order to engage and disengage the front axle. When the driver engages the 4WD system, the Transfer Case Control Module sends a signal to the electric motor actuator to energize and extend the plunger inside. The extended plunger moves the clutch fork and clutch fork sleeve across from the clutch fork outer gear that is splined to the right side wheel drive shaft to the clutch fork inner gear that is splined to the inner axle shaft. The locking of the two gears allows the axle to operate in the same manner as a semi-floating rear axle. A propeller shaft connects the transfer case to the front axle. The differential carrier assembly uses a conventional ring and pinion gear set to transmit the driving force of the engine to the wheels. The open differential allows the wheels to turn at different rates of speed while the axle continues to transmit the driving force. This prevents tire scuffing when going around corners and premature wear on internal axle parts. The ring and pinion set and the differential are contained within the carrier. The axle identification number is located on top of the differential carrier assembly or on a label on the bottom of the right half of differential carrier assembly. The wheel drive shafts are completely flexible assemblies consisting of inner and outer constant velocity CV joints protected by thermoplastic boots and connected by a wheel drive shaft.

2000 jimmy cant turn 4 wheel drive on pushed thev button n light keeps on flashing n 4 wheel drive


The simple answer is to replace the TCCM (transfer case control module).
Being both cheap and inquisitive, I wanted to investigate further, and I will provide a more in-depth answer.

This answer pertains to various GM vehicles. These include the Chevy Blazer, GMC Jimmy, S10, S15, Sonoma vehicles from 1999, 2000, 2001, 2002, 2003, 2004, & 2005.
Specifically the 15748800 module for the NP8 option 4 button automatic 4X4 NVG-236/246 transfer case.

I doing research online, I find that 15154323 might be an alternate TCCM, and that GM redesigned the module and now sells the replacement for this module with a 12577412 part number for about $300.

This information refers to the 15748800 module.
2000-jimmy-turn-4-bqqpoqfgk1hfvr1c2liydaq2-3-0.jpg Symptoms. If the vehicle is started and driven in 2 hi, the vehicle operates normally.
If the driver attempts to switch the transfer case into any other mode, the transfer case makes noise as it shifts, the service 4x4 light comes on and the newly selected mode indicator light starts to flash.

2000-jimmy-turn-4-bqqpoqfgk1hfvr1c2liydaq2-3-2.jpg The TCCM is mounted behind the passenger side kick panel cover. It should be removed but left connected. Pin F4 should be monitored with either a lamp or meter. This pin should be high or 12 volts when in 2 wheel drive, and low or ground when in 4 wheel drive.
A quick test of the system is to ground the F4 pin, recycle the ignition, and try shifting the transfer case into and out of 4 wheel drive. ( I used a lamp based test light to be safe. Do not an LED based one.) If the mode indicator light remains steady and the Service 4X4 does not light, proceed with this repair procedure. If this does not resolve the issue, please proceed to troubleshoot the front vacuum system, 4X4 solenoid, 4X4 actuator, front axle, or front axle indicator switch.

If this test appears to resolve the issue, you will need to remove the TCCM module from the vehicle. Bend the 8 tabs away from the back cover. Remove the top cover, unscrew the board from the back cover / plate. turn over the board at a static safe work station, and measure the indicated 10,000 ohm SMD resistor. In this module, the resistor is required to operate near it's limits, and I believe that the conformal coating trapped heat and caused the resistor to fail. You can check other resistors nearby for a relative comparison. If found to be open, the resistor can be replaced with a higher power value 10,000 ohm SMD resistor, or a conventional 10,000 ohm resistor with wired leads.

The TCCM should be checked for corrosion on the connectors and cleaned if nessacary. The module can then be restored to the vehicle, and your 4X4 should work normally.

Please respond if this procedure helps you.

Four wheel drive won't work


the fist thing to check is the front drive shaft if it turns freely while in 4wd that means you have a bad transfer case. also check your fuse box make sure the 4wd fuse is not blown.

GMC '91 Jimmy, Transfer case. When in two wheel drive I hear a slight grinding noise and rattling noise. When in 4 wheel no noise. 330,000 miles, could something be worn? What keeps the transfer case gear...


Remove the transfer case and strip it down,wash it out and replace whatever is worn.
330,000 miles is unrealistic
Your chain is worn and stretched for sure, and rattling and may be cutting into the case.
Don't install another salvage yard unit, unless you can not repair yours. Then strip down whatever you purchase, and go thru it also.

My 2000 gmc jimmy 4x4 stoped working. It wont go into 4 hi. the vacume pump under the battery is good. can hear and feel the motor switch from 4 low to 2 hi. any ideas? Is there a code reader for this...


Hi, it sounds like your front diff engages but your transfer case is not. raise one of your front tires off the ground and see if it will lock up when you go to 4hi. If it does then the problem is your encoder motor that hangs down under your transfer case.

Won't shift back into 2 wheel drive after being in 4 wheel drive. 4 wheel low work good.


There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer-case on the driver's side that has gone bad. It's common on out jimmy's and will need to be replaced. Auto Zone or Parts Source will have that part and can give you the step by step instructions to replacing it and take about 15 min to replace. They go for around $25.00 at Auto Zone and $65.00 at the dealers and all you need is a 1 inch open end wrench i believe and patients. It's a tight fit to turn the wrench but you can do it and once loosen, just use your fingers. First disconnect the three vacuum line harness on the vacuum switch and then remove the switch. Once removed, install the new switch and vacuum lines and that's it. Good luck and buy and extra switch and keep it in the glove box. If you push the button for the 2wd, the transfer case will be on the 2wd selection and the front drive shaft will not have any torque to it but the front differential will still be engaged so you can drive it like that till you get a chance to replace the vacuum switch. Good luck and keep warm.

2000 GMC Jimmy Transmission Whine


Does it sound like a loud winding sound coming from the front right side? I have a 2001 Jimmy and the 4wd tries to engage when driving up steep hills and going at highway speeds. The actuator vacuum switch engaged when the transfer case vacuum switch sends the vacuumed air to the actuator. What is happening is their is either a leak in the vacuum lines, a faulty actuator switch, or a faulty transfer case vacuum switch. When the jimmy has enough air pulling in, the extra vacuum is trying to push the actuator switch in when it is not supposed to. It is a much cheaper fix than a transmission. GMC should have recalled the whole 4wd system on any of the S10's, the JImmy's, and Blazers.
