Reset light on my dash


Should be in your owners manual.
Put the ignition on "run"; push the accelerator to the floor 3 times w/in 5 seconds. The light should blink, after it blinks turn key to "lock" and then turn the truck back on. Light should be off.

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

I have a 1993 ford f150 4x4 i cant get it out of 4 wheel drive it still drive in 4wd how do i fix this problem


if it has automatic lock in hubs only!! start truck, put truck in neutral, push button for 2x2 shift into reverse,back up 5to 10 feet,truck should shift back into 2x2 automatically. shift into drive and the 4x4 light should go off. if you have manual lock hubs you''ll need to unlock those manually on the 2 front wheels.w/truck in neutral and emergency brake on or someone holdling brake inside truck,go to front and rotate the locking hubs to front tire or wheels in centerof hub to free wheel.they will be marked,or should be. if not,then try turning the center of hub switch counter clockwise until it stops turning,then go to passenger side and turn it counter clockwise. thank you for choosing fixya.

97 GMC Z71 4X4 Not Locking in


If it's a shift - on - the - fly 4wd, then call your local Chevy truck dealer. There was a recall on the Electronic 4wd on these trucks. (common problem). Try this just for the heck of it. With the truck stopped, put in 4hi/lo, then put it in reverse. Back up slightly, (about 5ft or so) and then put it in drive (or first in a manual trans) and go forward. Did it lock in? If it locks in but won't unlock, try backing up to unlock. Hope this helps.
