This means you have a problem in the transmission. just like a check engine light. the pilots have alot of problems with the transmission. usually if you have less than 100k. the dealership has to replace the trans for free

2003 Silverado 4WD. Service 4WD dash light comes on after engaging 4WD and acts up by engaging itself randomly for several days, then goes back to normal.


Check connection at the 4X4 control module , check power and grounds . Do you know how to do basic electrical testing ? Does your truck have manual or automatic trans mission ? Which transfer case does yours have ?

The NVG 263 transfer case features a three button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module (TCCM) starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/gear position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position begins flashing to inform the driver that the TCCM has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator for the new position remains ON constantly. In the event that the TCCM can not or will not complete the shift, the indicator returns to the previously selected position; this is a Transfer Case Shift Control Switch Indicator Flashes, then Returns to Previous Mode condition.

The NVG 263 transfer case provides the driver with 4 manual mode/gear positions:
• 2HI - 2 Wheel Drive high range
• 4HI - 4 Wheel Drive high range
• 4LO - 4 Wheel Drive low range
• Neutral
Have it check for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes ?

DTC B0790
DTC B2725
DTC C0306
DTC C0327
DTC C0359
DTC C0379
DTC C0550

Your best bet would be take it to a qualified repair SHOP

My 1996 Buick Riviera has a Traction, security light, seat belt light that stays on all the time and the Temp gage will register the correct temp then drop out as does the gear position indicator and then...


gear position indicator will start blinking a code(?) You may think it's blinking a code , but it's not . Doesn't have the capability to do that . Traction, security light on - take it and have DTC'S - diagnostic trouble codes checked . Sounds like you have insturment cluster problem , Without testing anything that would be a guess . Take it to a qualifieed repair shop an have it diagnosed .

How many button's on the dash for the 4X4 ? Any light's lit ? Which transfer case ?
Transfer Case - NVG 233-NP1 (Two Speed Selectable)
Transfer Case - NVG 236/246-NP8 (Two Speed Automatic)
The NVG 233 transfer case features a 3 button shift control switch, located on the instrument panel. When the ignition is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch, to determine if a new mode/gear position has been selected. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new position begins flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp continues to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been reached, or has engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position remains ON constantly.
The NVG 236/246 transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the vehicle has the ignition key in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/gear position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position will begin flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/gear position. The lamp will continue to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/gear position has been reached, or has been engaged. Once the new mode/gear position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position will remain ON constantly.

Both of these 4X4 systems are capable of setting DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's . Your best bet , take it to a qualified repair shop .

Shift position indicator has moved from D for drive to 2. How do you fix it?


First verify if it is a shift position problem or an indicator problem. If the position is wrong, there is a shift linkage from the gear shift to the transmission that can be adjusted. If it is the indicator, then it is in the gear shift mechanism proper. I don't think it is possible for the transmission to change the angular position of the control shaft that engages various gears, etc. But the linkage could change.

While troubleshooting this problem, try to figure out why it happened. Is something loose? Did something bend the linkage while you were out 4-wheeling? Is something else about to break? Are your motor mounts OK, or has the physical position of your engine relative to the gear shift mechanism changed for any reason? I never had a vehicle do this, but maybe you are just lucky.

HOW TO SHIFT TO 4 WHEEL DRIVE


Hi - Here is instruction how to do.

From N to 4H

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to shift into "4H".

From 4H to 4H LOCK

You can operate the transfer switch either

when the vehicle is stopped or while the

vehicle is moving.

Position the front wheels straight ahead

and turn the switch to shift into "4H LOCK".

If the vehicle is moving, we recommend

that the speed be less than 100 km/h (60

mph) during this operation.

NOTE:

• When shifting between the transfer

switch position and the transfer gear

position is unmatched, all 4WD indicators

will blink and the buzzer will sound.

• If it is difficult to shift between "4H" and

"4H LOCK" while the vehicle is moving,

try accelerating and decelerating your

vehicle several times after turning the

transfer switch. Be sure to wait until traffic

conditions allow you to accelerate and

decelerate safety before using this procedure.

From 4H LOCK to 4L LOCK

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to shift into "4L LOCK".

From 4L LOCK to 4H LOCK

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to shift into "4H LOCK".

From 4H LOCK to 4H

You can operate the transfer switch either

when the vehicle is stopped or while the

vehicle is moving.

Position the front wheels straight ahead

and turn the switch to shift into "4H". If the

vehicle is moving, we recommend that the

speed be less than 100 km/h (60 mph) during

this operation.

NOTE:

• When shifting between the transfer

switch position and the transfer gear

position is unmatched, all 4WD indicators

will blink and the buzzer will sound.

• If it is difficult to shift between "4H" and

"4H LOCK" while the vehicle is moving,

try accelerating and decelerating your

vehicle several times after turning the

transfer switch. Be sure to wait until traffic

conditions allow you to accelerate and

decelerate safety before using this procedure.

From 4H to N

64J209

Stop the vehicle completely, place the

transmission in "N" (Neutral) and depress

the brake pedal and the clutch pedal fully

(if equipped), then push in and turn the

switch to the mark (1) at the left of the "N"
position, and hold the switch in this posi-

tion for 5 seconds until the "N" indicator

blinks, then turn the switch to the "N" position.

When you turn the transfer switch to the

"N" position, "N" indicator will come on with

the buzzer sound.

CAUTION

• Be sure to stop the vehicle completely

before operating the transfer

switch to shift between "N" and

"4H", or between "4H LOCK" and

"4L LOCK".

• Do not shift between "4H" and "4H

LOCK" unless the front wheels are

in the straight-ahead position and

we recommend that the vehicle

speed be less than 100 km/h (60

mph).

Do not operate the transfer switch

while tires are racing.

• Do not operate your vehicle in "4H

LOCK" or "4L LOCK" on dry, hard

surfaces.

(Continued)

CAUTION

(Continued)

• Do not operate the vehicle while a

4WD mode indicator is blinking

except when shifting between "4H"

and "4L LOCK".

If you operate the vehicle while a

4WD mode indicator is blinking, a

buzzer will sound and the transfer

will shift to "N" (Neutral) to prevent

transfer case damage.

In this case, use the following procedure.

1) Depress the clutch pedal fully (if

equipped) or shift the automatic

transmission gearshift lever to the

"N" position.

2) Turn the transfer switch to the

position previously selected.
3) Operate the transfer switch again.

The D4 is flashing can you tell me why


This is involved. When the D4 light blinks, it is indicating a problem with the input or output systems for the A/T. If you find your Service Check Connector (it should be near or at the top of the kick panel on the passenger's side; it's usually blue and has two holes in it; it is at the end of a wire so don't look for a fixed unit; it is often simply tucked in behind the top of the kick panel. You should pull the kick panel out to find it) you can insert a paper clip so that it connects the two holes. Then, if you turn your ignition to ON II (do not start the car) the D4 light will blink out a code, using both long and short blinks. The blinks have to be carefully counted. Problem codes 1 through 9 care indicated by short blinks. Problem codes 10 through 15 are indicated by a series of long and short blinks (you have to add them together to get the code).

Locate the two-pin female diagnostic connector behind the glove box. Use a very small jumper wire or paper clip to connect the two pins. Turn key on, (do not start the engine). The D4 light should start flashing. Note that it may do long and short flashes. The long flashes mean 10. (Example, three long flashes followed by two short flashes means trouble code 32.) Possibly it could pause and display several codes, so be sure and let it run through it's cycle a few times and carefully count the flashes.

There are more than 40 codes listed in the service manual, so respond with yours and I'll tell you what the service manual says about it.

I tell you all this to indicate that the procedure is fairly involved, and since you probably don't have a list of what the codes mean, I would have to say that it would be best to find, if you can, a Honda dealer to read the codes and check your transmission. Most of these problems are connector or sensor related and are usually indicated by the transmission not shifting from one gear to another, or by the transmission jerking hard when it shifts. If your having no problems and you are in a position to not have access to a Honda service department, you can find the backup radio fuse in your engine compartment fuse box and take it out(not with the car running) for 10 seconds or so, then put it back. It will clear the computer. If the D4 starts blinking again, it would indicate that the warning was not just a glitch.

Hope helps.

Blinking light means there is a trouble code.There is a procedure to manually pull codes from the computer.Have the codes checked,have them written down.It could be just shift solenoids,or could even be something more serious,but thats the starting point.
