That noise is the transfer case making the grinding noise because its onky designed to stay in 4wd for short periods only or you are running the risk of it burning out. What you need to do is to take it to a 4wd mechanic straight away or it may be costly.
Hope this helps and Thanks for using Fixya.

1996 gmc jimmy started making noise sounding like it is is right front was told need to replace wheel hub which was done. Still making the same noise in 2 wheel drive. when you push button for 4 wheel...


Sounds like your front axle is trying to engage but does not engage fully.check your vacuum going to the t-case switch and then if that is ok check your vacuum at the front axle actuator.It is located under the battery tray.

1996 GMC Jimmy manual - need help with 4 wheel drive - stuck in 4 wheel low and can't get out


Try to place the vehicle in park, then reverse, move the vehicle a few feet in reverse, then switch to neutral but NOT DRIVE. Attempt to take it out of low again and then go to drive. This is the method I had to use occassionally when my vehicles would get stuck in low.

Push button 4 wheel drive stuck in 4 wheel hi


My GMC Jimmy '01 would slip from 2-wheel to 4-wheel drive while I was driving. First time it happened my mechanic replaced a small part. This last time, he couldn't find anything wrong so he popped the 2-4 out and disconnected the 4-wheel drive. Now I don't have the problem.

Rhythmic thud that increases and decreases with speed. I replaced wheell bearings and seals the differential looks ok, real clean. should the axle have any play up and down?


On a 1996 GMC Jimmy 4 wheel drive
Why is it reluctant to coming out of 4 wheel drive? Switch must be working when activated, you can hear it clicking but it won't release into 2 wheel drive, even when backing up and turning the wheels!

Stuck in 4 wheeldrive


Have you gotten a service light? Sometimes these electronic things just freak out. It might be as simple as a new switch. There is a motor on the transfer case that is responsable for moving the levers in the case that use to be done by a lever from inside the truck. I think it may be possible to remove this motor and replace it with a lever. I would check into this by calling a local 4x4 shop, or a mechanic that specializes in 4x4 vehicles.

2001 gmc jimmy keeps kicking into 4 wheel drive


the 4 wheel low light will usually only blink because the low gear is meant for a very slow speed and usually wont activate with the vehicle in motion i would have to say the sudden switch to 4x4 though would probably be a short in the wiring some place
