Is there an electric or vacuum switch on a 2001 chevy blazer


There are 2 models here the push button will flash if the system is not engaging or disengaging properly . If front drive shaft is turning. That is with car raised and supported . if front drive axles do not turn then the axle actuator is not engaging axle shaft passenger side. Remove actuator and manually engage shifting collar with a screwdriver still does not turn then inner axle is twisted.

Front axle does not engage. Push 4hi or 4lo button, transfer case motor engages front drive shaft, front diferential actuator extends, but no 4 wheel drive. What do I check next?


There may be vacuum lines running down to the hubs. If so check them for vacuum when engaging and dis-engaging 4 wheel. If you can't feel any vacuum, trace lines, and check for leaks.

I have a 2000 z 71 all leds work replaced frt axel motor and wtched it work while out it goes in low range but still in 2 wheel drive like the frt end wont engage is there any thing eles i can look at ...


Check the transfer case. Put a jack under the rear axle and jack up the rear wheels. Have a helper put in 4 wheel and the trans in drive. Have him/her ease off the brake and see if the rear wheels spin. If they spin, 4x4 isn't working. If the truck tries to pull forward with the rear wheels up then it works. Now, if the rear wheels are spinning carefully look under the truck and see if the front driveshaft is spinning along with the rear driveshaft. If the front shaft is spinning then it is an axle problem. If the front shaft is not spinning then it is a transfer case problem. GM has a problem with the NP263 case.

My 2002 2500HD 4x4 front axle not engaging


Try jacking up one side of the front and putting it on a jackstand. Then turn key on(but dont start it) and put it in 4hi. Try to spin the tire in the air. The drive shaft should not turn nor the wheel. If the wheel does then maybe the acuator is not moving in the axle. It worked when you pulled it out but it might be hanging up on something in the axle.

Front drive, 4 Wheel drive won't engage


that vacume line goes back to the transfer case, the end that goes behind the motor hooks to a steel tube so it does not get hot from the exhaust., my guess it should be hooked up so it will feed vacume to the vacume ball so it can lock in the axels. if you start the car and shift into 4 wheel drive and listen under hood you should hear a hissing sound, that is vacume, if you can't hear it there, you may have to craw under the right side to hear it, probably came unhooked underneith the car
