Four wheel drive buttons

My 1999 Silverado pickup has 4 wheel drive buttons on the dash to the left of the steering column. Pushing the buttons do nothing and it will not go into 4 wheel drive. It remains in 2 wheel drive.

2000 chev Silverado 1500 push button 4 x 4 will not come out of four wheel drive. No 4 x 4 service lights on. Dash switch indicates 4 high. Push for 2 wd. the light in dash will go from 4high to 2 high...


Seems if i remember it could be one of two things. The control module is located right behind the dash on the left side of the steering column close to the ac vent. So close that condensation from the AC runs into the plug. The only other thing is the motor on the transfer case. You cold remove the motor and plug it up and get someone to move the switch for you. Don't forget to ground the motor while testing it.

4wheel drive won't work


First check the fuse located in fuse box under hood. The most common problem is in the push-button switch located in the dash. I am a 67 year old female and fixed my boyfriend's 4WD in under 1/2 hour last week-end. You can order a new switch on eBay for under $40.00. Adjust steering wheel to lowest position and pull shift lever all the way down. Remove dash bezel from around gauges and switch (it just pops loose). This takes a little time getting it off from around steering column, etc. Just be gentle and patient. Snap out old switch, unsnap wiring, replace with new switch, snap in, replace dash bezel and you're done! There is a video on uTube showing steps. His 4X4 works perfect now and I get to tease him Double benefit. This was on a 1999 Chevy Silverado 1500. Let me know how it goes. Good Luck! -Marilyn

Sterring column worn out 1989 silverado 4 wheel


The best option is related to the actual damage on the unit which needs a good observation and check. If the bushes are worn out on the column then this can be overhauled at a machine shop. If the damage is more then there best way is to replace to give you the best performance.
Also the spares for the steering ends, joints and linkages must be checked to be free of any PLAY or SHAKE.

Chevy pickup 4-wheel drive won't engage


Replace the push button selector assembly. Common failures. If that isnt the problem then the encoder motor on transfer case has failed. Try switch first.

1999 chev sivlerado 1500 pickup stuck in four wheel high mode


Had the same problem. Easy fix. Grasp the plastic dashboard piece that goes around the instrument cluster and 4 wheel drive switch and pull off. Remove the 4 wheel drive switch. Unplug wiring harness from back of switch. use small screwdriver and carefully bend all metal tabs in back of switch slightly to one side. Re-install harness and switch back into dash. Should work fine, it just was not getting a connection. Worked great for me.
