SOURCE: Hi, I have a 2002 chevy tahoe with a major

If the battery is the factory OEM since you had the truck. It may just be at the end of it's life, most battery last only 4 to 5 years and then needs to be replaced. You can always disconnect the battery when you park it over night and see if the battery has keep it's charge. Just make sure you turned the radio off first before you disconnect the battery. Start with this and as for the 4wd switch, that would not pull any current when ignition is turned off. Good luck and keep me posted.

SOURCE: 4wd wont switch out of 4 hi if it does goes to

Most likely the actuator motor on the transfer case or the switches in the dash,very rarely have I replaced the module under the dash!!
The switches cost around $65.00 and the actuator runs around $400.00 at the dealer for parts,Nether are a hard or complected job!
Hope this helps,Have a Nice Day!

PS From my experience it's probly the actuator motor.

It may also be the dash mounted selector switch. GM has had problems in the past with their soldering (ie. the wiper control module). I had the same problem with my 98 Tahoe, replaced the dash switch and works fine now. If you are stuck in 4 wheel drive, turn the key off for a couple minutes, then start the truck and switch it to 2 wheel drive before driving. The shifter is "heat" activated and turning the electrical system off for a couple minutes allows you to switch the truck back to 2 wheel drive.
