I had this same problem with mine. The manual said that 4 green tires would light up on the instrument panel letting you know it was engaged and it would not when I pushed the button. I took it to the dealer and it turns out there is a vacuum hose that engages it and it was not connected. So it took them two seconds to connect it and then it worked. This happened again a year later and my dad fixed it again by doing the same thing. This is your problem more than likely. If so and you do get it fixed here's another tip: my dad mentioned that on occasion (even if not needed) engage the 4WD just to keep it "in check", meaning, if I didn't use it, I'd lose it. Oh, and make sure to THOROUGHLY read the manual's operating instructions before using the 4WD feature. Hope that helps!

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.

SOURCE: 4 Wheel Drive Problem

Put the key in the run position and turn your 4wd on and off to listen for the electronic acuator to engage and disengage. If your can hear it then it's macanical and a Quick fix. On top of the transfercase on the driver's side, your going to find three vacuume tube connected to a cauume switch that may have gone bad. There common to go bad and there not the bad of a price at the Auto Zone. Check for any cracks on the vacuume line first then get your hands dirty. Good luck and keep an extra switch in your glove box.

How do I use the 4 wheel drive on my GMC Yukon 2004. What dash button turns the 4 wheel drive on?


Hi, depending on the vehicle, there can be different controls. Standard control, 4hi, use in slippery conditions, never on dry pavement. Just push the button, and it will engage. 4low is for extreme conditons and the transmission must be in neuteral to engage 4lo. If you have auto 4wd button, just press the button in slippery conditions. If you have a denali, it is all wheel drive, and there are no buttons to push. So, depending on the model, there are multiple ways, but pushing the button engages it. Good luck...Goop

The engagement piston might be dirty causing it not to fully engage. Also check your linkage on your transfer case.
