Your description leaves open a lot of possibilities, but one common issue with these vehicles are wheel bearings. If you have access to a jack, you can lift one side of the front of the vehicle so that the tire is hanging in the air. Grab the top and the bottom of the tire and try to push and pull the tire toward you and away from you. There should be essentially no play or movement. if there is, your bearings need replacing.

4 wheel drive service light came on seems like front wheels are not engageing, i feel it shifting like its in gear but i dont have the traction what should i look for?

It's pretty basic actually. The encoder motor engages 4WD within the transfer case which drives the front differential. The drivers side wheel is always engaged at this point and the passengers side wheel is engaged via a vacuum controlled cable (actuator - lunder the battery). There are no "hubs" (so-to-speak), not in the way that you use to see on the older systems where you'd have to lock them.

2003 gmc yukon vibration only at 50 to 60 MPH feels rough like transmition. other speeds are fine.

50-60 mph vibration may be as simple as tires being out of balance or an unevenly worn tire(s)

Sounds like you may have a problem with the power steering pump. Notorious for these pumps shaft to break, causing "armstrong" power steering. As far as the 4wd low problem, ick.

I have a 2003 Yukon XL that will switch from Auto 4 wheel drive to 4 high or 4 low on its own. The service 4 wheel drive indicator comes on when it is in 4 wheel drive. The fluids in the transfer case...

My 2003 yukon xl does the exact same thing. Sorry that I do not have a solution, but I figure its the same reason the daytime running lights always burn-out. The SUV in general has be an absolute POS and I will never buy another.
