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

Changed the dashboard switch for 4wd. That didn't work. Still cannot get into 4wd.

The New Venture Gear model NVG 246 RPO NP8 transfer case is a two speed automatic, active, transfer case. The NVG 246 EAU provides 5 modes, Auto 4WD, 4HI, 4LO, 2HI and Neutral. The Auto 4WD position allows the capability of an active transfer case, which provides the benefits of on-demand torque biasing wet clutch and easy vehicle tuning through software calibrations. The software calibrations allow more features such as flexible adapt ready position and clutch preload torque levels. The technology allows for vehicle speed dependent clutch torque levels to enhance the performance of the system. For example, the system is calibrated to provide 0-5 ft lb of clutch torque during low speed, low engine torque operation, and predetermined higher torque for 40 km/h (25 mph) and greater. This prevents crow-hop and binding at low speeds and provides higher torque biases at higher vehicle speeds, in order to enhance stability.

What do I do to fix the gear shift indicator on a automatic transmission?


The gear shift indicator is just a peace of plastic it could be broken or just come lose. I think that car has gear shift on the floor. Normally are screws on the side of the plastic cover on each side. Just remove the screws and lift the cover and you should be able to see if the pointer broken or just needs adjusting. You should not have to try on it. just remember that it is just plastic. good luck Jerry

How do i replace the dashboard light bulb for a 1985 el camino


you need to disconnect the speedometer then remove the 6 or 8 screws that hold the instrument panel to the dash.if its an automatic you will have to unhook the shift indicator cable from the shift colume.then pull the instrument panel out of the dash,turn the panel upside down and you will see the bulb sockets.replace all the bulbs at this time so you won`t have to do this again for another bulb.when hooking up the shift indicator cable make sure it indicates the properly selected gear when moving the shifter to each gear position.

Transmission shift light does not illuminate


Common problem. The indicators burn out. This will need to be replaced with a new unit from gm or send it out to a repair man specializing in electronic repair. You can find some selling their services on ebay.

I am trying to install a new shift solenoid to eliminate the intermittent trans slipping and solid yellow arrow on the dash ( sometimes flashing/ sometimes off). I do not readily see the switch from below....


The sensor you have indicated, on the drivers side bell housing, is called an output speed sensor, it is visible from underneath the car. its located over where the right side axle comes out of the transmission, If you would post the codes that you are getting, I have very RARELY seen that sensor cause a problem. Maybe I can offer a better more accurate solution?

Shift lever light?


Hi,

I am assuming that you are referring to the PRNDL / gear shift indicator for Automatic Column Shifts, if so, then yes. Lights to provide back illumination for the PRNDL are normally wired together with the other dashboard/parklights. They are smaller than the standard dashboard bulbs.

BTW, I was made to understand that TJs with column shift automatic are very rare, my compliments.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back if I have not addressed your concern, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
