1999 Sierra GMC stuck in 4X4

I have a problem with my 99 GMC sierra. Went into 4X4 and will not come out. You can hear the shift motor running when you push the buttons, but does not shift out. Note, I did not put it into 4X4 it went there by it self.

    can you be more specific on where the part is on the front

  • sowens424 Jul 25, 2009

    I think I found it, how do you get it off?

  • sowens424 Jul 25, 2009

    removed solenoid, pushed 4x4 button with solenoid plugged in but not on car and it activated. 1st the plunger went in then back out again and it repeated for a 2nd time. I guess you could say it cycled. Is the plunger out or in for 4x4? or is it a switch?

    1999 gmc sierra stuck in 4x4. new switch on dash, pulled front solenoid and it goes in and out when i push the dash button. I can hear transfer case trying to work, sounds like a small motor running, when I push buttons. I do not believe I put it into 4x4, it was in when I got in one morning.

I had the same problem with a ford just recently, I tested everything related and all was ok. I scanned the computer and I had an ignition code stored but no check engine light on. I cleared the code and heard the solenoid unlatch and 4x4 light went off.

Has the transfer case ever had the fluid changed? dirty fluid is a common cause of this problem, the case is easy to service and refill, it takes automatic trans fluid, do the service and see what happens.

There is a solenoid (4wd mode switch) that engages the 4wd, connected to the switch attached to the front axle. Either the solenoid, or the control located on the front axel must be replaced. The part is not expensive , the mode switch is about $140.

1999 gmc sierra 2500 6 liter ran out of gas now won't start


If you are at or near the 100,000 mile mark then your fuel pump may have failed. If you remove the fuel filler cap and listen carefully at the filler neck while someone turns the ignition key to "run" [don't actually crank the engine] you should be able to hear the fuel pump buzz for about a second and a half as the key is turned On. If you don't hear the pump buzz then odds are your pump is dead. Your pump may have actually failed making it appear as though you ran out of fuel. Not to uncommon. Hope this helps and good luck!

2001 Sierra. My driver side window stopped


The window motors are getting weak. If they are stuck down you can sometimes get them up by giving a firm hard hit on inside lower door panel while holding button up. This can get the windows up until you can get the window motor replaced. If you would like any further assistance feel free to ask, Thank you.
