Question about 2006 GMC Sierra

1 Answer

4 wheel drive has a winding sound and binds up when turning.

I have a 06 gmc sierra hybrid with push button 4x4 when shifting between 2h 4h and 4l transfer case clunks pretty hard and when in 4wd going strait works fine but when decelerating i hear a winding sound. and when i turn i hear the same winding sound like metal gears winding against metal. if the wheel is turned all the way the back tires lock up like it has lockers but it doesnt. and the whole drive train seems to bind up to the point where it wont move at all unless i kick the rpms up to about 2500. this truck only has 18000 miles and the transfer case has the right amount of oil.

04' GMC Sierra quadrasteer, trec fuse 30a blows when trying to engage 4wd. I replace fuse, start truck and 4wd auto is lit up but if I press 2h, 4h, or 4 low it blows. What should I do or look for?


Wild guess here, had a similar problem on my 2000 4x4 blazer, has an electric motor on transfure case to swith it into 2h, 4h, and 4l, would blow the fuse every time when switching, did is to replace the motor. Just confirm your fuse that is blowing feeds that.

I now have a suzuki samuri and do not know how to use 4x4 gears


Using the shorter gear leaver in the samurai, the gear choices are arranged in a simple U fashion. They are arranged in sequence. At left top, bottom, right middle and right top you have 2 high(2H), 4 hight (4H), neutral(N) and 4 low (4L).
2H- Engages rear wheel drive only.
4H- Engages all wheels in 4X4 mode.
N- Disengages all wheels (if you gonna tow your vehicle)
4L- Engages all wheels in 4X4 mode with 50% more torque but you cut your top speed by an equal amount.
If you have the OEM gear knob the diagram of the layout of the transfer box should be imprinted. 2 high should be used on dry and mildly wet paved roads. Using 4L or 4H in these conditions may result in damage to your transfer box. You may use 4L or 4H in any other road conditions.

2005 Sierra 4x4 doesn't work, 4h light is on and stays on


My 2005 Sierra 4x4 did the same thing while running down the interstate on vacation. Scared me to death, thought it was going to shift into 4 wheel drive @ 80 MPR. Had to take to shop and they found a censor bad and they replaced it. Don't know cost, because truck was still under warranty.

Have a gmc 2005 sierra the 4x4 doesn't work. when I press the 4x4 button blinks a few times,and then makes like grinding sounds,it sounds that is coming from transfer case,but never engage and ligth goes...


Not good! there is a sensor in your transfer case that senses that you are now in four wheel drive if your transfer case does not lock in it will set a code and the light will flash and default back to two wheel drive. check the fluid level in the transfer case and front differential for a sign of internal failure. that is causing the grinding sound.

4runner 92 4WD problem


This might sound like a silly question but did you put the truck in neutral before you shifted into 4L ? Reason being transfer case damage can occure if it wasnt in neutral when you shifted into 4L.

I bought a 2000 f150 4x4, 5 speed. the truck


You can try several things. You can stop the vehicle as if you are going into low range and shift the high range 2h, 4h, etc.. Ford advertises the Electric button type as "shift on the fly" but does not say the gears are synchronized to do that with manual engagement.

Change the lube this time to see if the lube is Milky. There have been floods, otherwise the case is sealed whether you park it or drive it. You still could have rust on the shift linkage. You need to move the linkage as you spray it. Then the offbeat chance something was bent from offroading. A Salvage Yard is a wonderful place to learn how a car is built. You may see their part looks different than yours.

Transfer case shifting


2H is neutral because only 2 wheels driven....the rear ones.....transfer case is free-spinning with non-driven front wheels now....maybe the light bulb burned out?
