It's certainly possible. I've put in my fair share of modules in these but I've also put in about an equal number of transfer case encoder motors [the part that does the shifting and reports back on what gear the transfer case is in] and shift select switches [the part that tells the transfer case module what gear you want to be in]. If you're uncomfortable with the dealers diagnosis it wouldn't hurt to check at another place to see what they think. If you decide to go with the dealers diagnosis just ask for the old parts back which would be proof that they replaced what was wrong and that it repaired the problem and you should be ok. The modules are very expensive on these so it is a bit of a sticker shock when replacing one. Good luck, hope it all works out for you.

How do I fix my 99 blazer the dome lights won't turn on and the 4 who drive won't light up or work


In the instrument panel fuse box fuse # 8 CTSY LP 10A ,that's for the dome lights, fuse panel is left side of IP. What are you talking about 4 who drive won't light up or work ? 4 wheel drive ? Do you have two speed automatic or two speed selectable ?
Switch Indicator Lamps Do Not Light - One or More ? Check fuse #15 IP fuse box 10A 4WD . This is for two speed auto !

Circuit Description

The indicator lamps circuits consist of 5 individual lamps contained inside the mode/range switch assembly, they are AUTO, 4WD, 2HI, 4HI, 4LO and NEUTRAL. The AUTO, 4WD, 2HI, 4HI, and 4LO lamps are contained inside their respective range button. When the ignition is ON, the transfer case shift control module illuminates the indicator lamp that corresponds to the current ATC gear position by providing a ground through a current limiting driver.
The transfer case shift control module flashes each indicator lamp after a shift has been requested and will continue to flash until the transfer case shift control module can complete the shift. After a shift to AUTO, 4WD, 2HI, 4HI, or 4LO is made, the transfer case shift control module will flash that indicator lamp until the transfer case shift control module receives a high voltage signal on CKT 1695 from the front axle switch.
A solid state circuit located inside the switch supplies ignition voltage to the lamps. The solid state circuit also receives voltage whenever the headlamp switch is in park or headlamp position. When the solid state circuit receives voltage from the headlamp switch it will reduce the voltage that it supplies to the indicator lamps, dimming the lamps when the headlamps are ON.

My 2005 Chevy Sub gets stuck in 4wd. The light blinks and blinks but will not go back into 2 High. I can hear the motor trying to engage but not response. After several hours, I will go back in. I


Sorry ,but your best bet would be to take your vehicle to a qualified repair shop that has the diagnostic tool that check's for DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code's in the 4X4 control module . Light blinking is suppose tell you that you need to take it in for sevice ,not for you to play with something you have no idea how it work's . You probably couldn't even tell me which 4X4 system your vehicle has . Transfer Case - BW 4482-NR4
Transfer Case - NVG 246-NP8
The BW 4482 transfer case features a 3-button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the vehicle has the ignition key in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module starts monitoring the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/range position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position will begin flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/range position. The lamp will continue to flash until all shifting criteria have been met and the new mode/range position has been reached, or has been engaged. Once the new mode/range position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position will remain ON constantly. In addition, the switch includes a VSES request button which sends a voltage signal to the transfer case shift control module. The transfer case shift control module in turn sends a request via the class 2 data bus to the ABS control module which controls the VSES system.

The NVG 246 EAU transfer case features a 4 button shift control switch located on the instrument panel. When the ignition key is in the RUN position, the transfer case shift control module monitors the transfer case shift control switch to determine if the driver desires a new mode/range position. At a single press of the transfer case shift control switch, the lamp of the new desired position will begin flashing to inform the driver that the transfer case shift control module has received the request for a new mode/range position. The lamp will continue to flash until all shifting criteria has been met and the new mode/range position has been reached, or has been engaged. Once the new mode/range position is fully active, the switch indicator lamp for the new position will remain ON constantly.

Looking at DTC'S is a far better place to start then crawling around on the ground looking at thing's you have no idea how there work.
DTC B0790
DTC B2725
DTC C0300
DTC C0305
DTC C0306
DTC C0321
DTC C0327
DTC C0359
DTC C0374
DTC C0379
DTC C0550
DTC B2725 ATC Mode Switch Circuit Malfunction
The range/mode switch circuit consists of 5 modes. The transfer case shift control module supplies 5 volts to the switch through the 5-volt reference circuit. The current travel through the resistor of the currently active mode. The current is then returned to the transfer case shift control module through the switch signal circuit.
The transfer case shift control module constantly monitors this signal voltage to determine the condition of the mode switch circuit.
When each of the modes are selected they complete a circuit through their own specific resistor. The transfer case shift control module continuously monitors the switch input to determine whether the Neutral, AWD, 2HI, 4HI, or 4LO mode was selected by the driver.
Transfer Case Shift Control Switch Indicator Flashes, then Returns to Previous Mode
The transfer case shift control module controls the transfer case lock solenoid. The transfer case lock solenoid is released by being energized. This is accomplished by grounding the lock solenoid control circuit during gear shifts, and in the AUTO 4WD mode. Locking action is applied when power or ground are taken away from the lock solenoid, the transfer case motor is prevented from moving. The system is capable of providing a 2HI, 4HI and 4LO lock-up without the need of additional vehicle power to hold the transfer case in these positions.
The transfer case motor is a bi-directional, permanent magnet, DC motor. When energized, through motor control A or motor control B, the ground is provided by the opposing motor control circuit and then grounded through the transfer case shift control module ground circuit, the motor, through a series of gears, rotates a shaft which moves the mode and range forks to shift the transfer case between the following ranges: 4HI, AUTO 4WD, 2HI, Neutral, and 4LO.
If there is a fault in the brake control circuit, motor control A and B circuits are shorted together, or a motor control driver is damaged in the transfer case shift control module, the transfer case shift control module goes into a shift block mode. The transfer case module will also go into shift block mode if there is a mechanical concern causing the shift lever detent shaft to bind, or the transfer case shift control module is not seeing a signal from the Park/Neutral position (PNP) switch. The shift block mode causes the mode indicator to flash for a period of time when another mode is selected. After that period of time has ended, the indicator reverts back to the previous mode selection.
Without factory service info. to guide you through a set diagnostic procedure you probably don't have a chance of fixing this yourself .

.DTC C0326 08: Transfer Case Lock System Performance Signal Invalid.
The transfer case shift control module controls the transfer case lock solenoid. The transfer case lock solenoid is released by being energized.

This DTC detects a lock solenoid that is mechanically unable to hold when in the locked state.

My 2005 Yukon will not switch out of 4wd low.


I'm assuming you have operated your 4WD before, and you know the tranny has to be shifted into neutral to engage and disengage 4LO (I'd try that first). Other than that they are bad for the 4wd Switches failing, (but usually one or more lights are flashing) and if its locked in 4LO you probably have a TCCM (Transfer case control module) problem. For the record there is no need to ever use 4LO, unless you are extremely stuck in the bush somewhere, there is no advantage on the street.

04 Trailblazer LS won't go into 4WD. Front hubs don't engage with switch in cab. It will gear down to 4wd Lo but front wheels won't engage. Please help. Can't afford the dealer!


What do the lights on the 4x4 selector switch do when you switch to A4WD or $HI or 4LO positions? Do they blink and revert to previous selection? Has the Transfer Case fluid been changed at 50K intervals?
There are actuators on the Transfer Case and Front Differential that control the application of power to the front wheels. These actuators are controlled by the TCCM (Transfer Case Control Module). It takes a qualified 4 wheel drive technician to diagnose these systems.

Something is wrong with the 4WD. Will engage in neutral to 4WD Lo which means the vaccum is probably working but 4WD Hi will not engage. I have tried resetting the control module as described in the owners...


what you are most likely feeling is in 4lo the transfer case drops the gear ratio and 4hi just locks the front differential in. do you know if the front axle is locking in in 4lo? i suspect you have a vacuum issue to the front actuator and this is why. there is a vacuum switch on top of transfer case that will stick and cause problems and sometimes the vacuum lines will pop off of this switch.check and see if you are getting vacuum to the actuator if not follow lines be sure one is not broken if you are then actuator is bad

4WD LO will not disengage what can cause this.


@ 2000 gmc: Exactly right.

asker: Also, it helps if you're rolling at about 2 mph with the steering wheels straight.
You cannot shift into 4LO with the wheels turned or when in a drive
gear. Also, it may be that you need the electric shift unit serviced.
It is not recommended to drive on dry pavement while in 4LO.

4wd wont work


You need to get it scanned for codes, if you have a B2725 then you have a 4WD switch problem, otherwise the fault is probably in the transfer case control module.

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.
