I had this happen on my chev as well a couple of times, once it was the solenoid switch for the automatic transfer case. Another time the ground wire for the switch was corroded and shorting out. There is a new software updgrade available as well that might fix if this is a recurring issue.

1998 Chevy Suburban - service 4wd light comes on after running 4x4 for 2 mins


Well it could be the selector switch, but I doubt it.
Generally, the service light means something is not working that the computer controls. Solenoids and valves are a couple of possibilities.
The transfer case is shifted by solenoids commanded by the body computer based on the switch position on the dash.
You should be able to have a shop scan the body computer for trouble codes and proceed from there.
A basic code reader may not access the body computer.

I have a 2004 GMC Envoy XL and the high range 4x4 mode will not engage. The AWD system works just fine as well as the 4x4 mode in low gear. What is causing this?


Is the Service 4WD light coming on? Do the light on the 4x4 selector switch indicate the proper selection and are on steady after a few seconds? If there is no Service 4WD light on and the selector switch light are correct, the only place for the problem to be is the Transfer Case. Has the Transfer Case fluid been changed at 50K mile intervals? This is very important.

My 4wd lights are not working and the message center says to service 4wd what does that mean


There is an electric motor that switches the transfercase from 2 to 4 wd. They are bad about sticking. Sometimes you can reset them by disconnecting the negative battery post for a few minutes. If that doesn't work carry it to the dealer. They will find the problem quicker than a regular shop.

Service 4wd


If you had the switch and encoder motor replaced 5 months ago, then you have warranty. You need to return to the dealer and have them pull codes to see if it is the C0327 again. Some of these trucks also had grounding issues for the 4wd module. If it is the same c0327 code stay on them and make them confirm their original diagnosis.
