Question about 2000 GMC Jimmy

Open Question

2000 silverado continually shifts itself into 4lo. it still has all the factory hardware and the switch lights all work. I can fool with backing/ pulling the fuse and such and it will go back into 2hi. but as soon as i stop the 4lo light starts blinking and it shifts itself when i stop. HELP Please!

SOURCE: jimmy wont lock in four wheel drive.

You need to see if the transfer case engagement motor is defective.

SOURCE: on my 2000 chevy S10

vacuum leak or vacuum locker solenoid problem. a great way to check for both is to remove both vacuum lines from the solenoid (located on firewall above destributor), and put a connector between them, push the button on the dash and see if it locks in.

SOURCE: 4wd

I dont know how familar you are with 4wd but have you tried to put it in 2wh and put the truck in reverse for about 15 to 25 feet?Try that and let me know what happens and sounds you hear.Ill also need to know if you have push button or on the floor.

SOURCE: My 4wd switch worked fine. Right now it is stuck

I'm not a mechanic, but I recommend getting this in for fixing ASAP... Mine started doing the same thing, except going from 2wd to A4wd... now it is all over the place, I've spent $2000, and I'm still at square one... You don't want to wind up wrecking your transfer case (or the motor on it), as that gets costly!! :) Good luck

Dave,
The problem your are speaking about could be a few things. All things that are somewhat common to go bad on Chevys/GMCs. Each one of the cars I worked on had a different problem. I have changed the switches, the 4wd solenoid, and TCM on different trucks. IMO the TCM location in the passenger kick panel is a poor location allowing water and other passenger debris to get into it. Once water gets in that area you can imagine already what occurs. One of the cars the TCM bracket was rusted by the ground and eventually the weak ground fried it. The weird thing is the TCM would allow it to shift sometimes and not other times or partially engaging causing the wonderful light to blink rapidly. What I have found of some time with these trucks is pushing the button to change the truck to two wheel drive and driving a few feet in reverse helps ease the change.

So you can start with a new switch that pops in and out of the dash in a few mins. Can get one on ebay for under 25 dollars. Although, I personally would take off the kick panel and take a look at the TCM. If you see any rust around it, my money would be on that.

Good luck

My 99 silverado 4x4 is stuck in 4LO. When I push 2wd, 4wd auto or 4HI it cycles through and returns to 4LO. I have replaced the shift module behind the dash, switch on the dash, transfer case shift motor...


You have to put the truck in neutral first then switch the 4hi and don't use the auto select. If it still won't switch you may have damaged the servo and need to replace it. Or worse damaged the transfer case. So try in neutral first and hope that works.

2000 GMC Jimmy 4x4 Switch not working and Shifting hard between 1st and 2nd


Change the switch itself if it drives normal then randomally kicks into 4 lo/4 hi i had the same problem and a transmission shop told me it was the vaccum and the transfer case but one of my mechanic friends told me that it was my switch and shops only tell you other things for the money. Try changing the switch.

My 2000 silverado z71 when switching to 2hi 4hi or 4lo the push button will flash and the front end will not ingage. and also have a abs light on


The 4x4 will not engage unless the ABS is in proper order the reason being. ABS cannot operate in a 4x4 engagement,and in return the 4x4 will not hi or low without the ABS concerns corrected the solution fix ABS and the 4x4 switch goes back to normal operations

WONT SHIFT INTO 4HI BUT WILL SHIFT INTO 4LOW


Are you sure that the actuator on the front differential is actually engaging? On my 99 silverado, the truck acts as if it is in 4lo when the button is pushed but the front wheels don't actually spin. Get on the ground and listen to whether or not the actuator engages.You should be able to hear it hum. If it doesn't then i would say it is the actuator which is common. Good Luck!

Vehicle: 2005 Chevy Silverado 2500HD 4X4 Duramax. Problem, when I trying switching the 4 wheel drive switch to 4LO, the light just blinks continuously.


You should have it put on diagnostic scanner to tell for sure. system needs to be tested. As a mechanic myself, I know these can be done fairlty easy on most vehicles but some can be slightly tricky
