a little tip a friend gave me in unlocking the 4wd drive on ramps or hill and then put in neutral let roll back a foot put in park and then let off the 4wd
when in 4wd the hubs get a little heated cause they need greased so they stick into position making it hard to come out of 4wd this which i spoke of i got stuck in the senerio where i almost drove home in 4wd from 300 miles away but i called my friend he told me bought this and so i thought it could help you
your hubs just locked up on you your bearings are going to need to be packed again this is normal for this

check the solenoid on the front chunk these vehicles have had a lot of problems with these solenoids. have personally replaced about 10 of these on 98-02 models.

Check the fuse to the 4x4, if the fuse is good then check the 4x4 electric motor actuator on the transfer case. You should hear it work from 2wd, 4hi to 4low and back to 2wd with the push of the switch. if you don't hear it working then check the wire harness at the actuator motor, look for any damages like corrosion or cracked wire connector clips. If all electrical is in good working order, replace the actuator motor. If the 4x4 actuator is working on the transfer case, then the front hub 4x4 actuator may have gone bad and that's located on the front differential. It's common for the clip there to corrode and break and is an easy fix with a new collar pin, at worst it's the diaphragm on the vacuum actuator that is located under the battery tray. There is a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, driver side but when that fails, your front hub stay's locked in the on position. Good luck and keep me posted and hope it's a simple fuse that has gone bad. You can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools.

Testimonial: "Thank You! I am a machanical idiot and your answer is clear and explains things well."
SOURCE: My "service 4wd" came
You definitely need to have it serviced & checked out...The service 4WD indicator read across my screen, but I did not have serviced...Eventually, I heard a grinding noise & because I didn't have it serviced when I took it in, it was found that the transfer case had no tranfer case fluid at all...This damaged the transfer case which had to be replaced (used transfer case-$400.00)....The transfer case is part of your transmission...The shape mine was in could have broke my transmission...Have it taken care off before it gets too bad...You must use only GMC Transfer Case Fluid
