Mr D is on the right track, but the popper thingy (4 wheel drive actuator ) is located in the front axle on the right axle tube. It has the 2 wires going to it and threads in and out with normal (right hand) thread. No danger in removing it, nothing will fall out or cause worse probs. The actuator is filled with a gas that expands when current is applied to a heating element. Your gas has leaked out. The GM fix is to install an electric motor actuator like they started in 98 or 99. Not sure if you can obtain the gas filled yet or not. Anyway once it is out shift the vehicle to 4 wheel drive and see if the actuator moves, yours won't. Good luck finding one or see a GM parts store they can get the electric one with new upgraded wire harnes and instructions.

There is a solenoid (popper thingy) that engages your four wheel drive. It is bad, it costs around eighty bucks, but is easy to fix. Go underneath your truck and look at your transfer case, it should have a wire or two going to it, that wire connects to the solenoid. Remove the solenoid, put the new one in and your light, and your four wheel drive will work again. This is a common problem with that type of four wheel drive system in the year ranges of 88-97.

The 4wd will not engage.


Most likely the front axle actuator,unhook it ,unscrew it from the axle ,then engage the 4x4 ,see if the actuator extends,if not it will need replaced.

4 wheel drive won't engage or light up on 1995 chevy tahoe . It doesn't do anything when I move the gear selector


Had the same problem, so I changed the actuator on the tranfer case. After I did that I still got not nothing. No engagement or a light at the shifter. So i popped the fuse panel cover on the left side of the dash and found the 4wd fuse was fried. Changed it and low and behold I had my 4wd back. So in actuality I just had to to change a fuse. So now I have a spare actuator. Oh well!!!!

1995 dodge 3500 4wd wont engage have shifter on floor light wont come on or 4wd wont engage


Any time your dealing with a 4x4 system the best start is at you front axle. Its primarily a vacuum leak so check to see if the 2 vac lines are hooked up (its good to check the electric connections.). When your 4 wheel drive is engaged and the motors running you should have vacuum at one or both of thee lines depending on if your in 4 hi or low .
If no vacuum at axle check the Vacum switchs(the plug with 4 vac lines) on top of the transfer case it will have 2 feed lines(grey & green) they conect in to the into the vacum harness on back of motor (passanger side). A vacum schematic is normally located on the raditor core support (right under the hood next to hood release)
Hope this helps

Front axle will not engage, transfer case is working fine. I was told the accuator was probably the problem. There is another sensor right above it and I don't know what it is?


Try this OLD trick.

Next time you go off road, after you made the selector to 4X4 HIGH.

SLOWLY drive backward for 6 to 12 feet.

See does the front axle engage.

Test 4X4 low.


Please give this a shot and let me know the result on the comment window.
