SOURCE: 4WD not engaging

Most the newer trucks have a vacuum system and some time you need a smoke machine to find the leaks. Try checking by each front wheel you will find a vacumm hose that goes to the wheel hub it is mounted on a bracket at the frame with a small plastic splice check that for cracks if it is cracked or there are any leaks it will not work let me know what ya find.

SOURCE: 98 Chevy S10 4wd drive will not engage when button is pushed

your problem sounds like either the transfer case control module located where you hear the clicking sound, or the actuator on the transfer case itself.

try unplugging the transfer case control module and then plug it back in, try engaging 4wd again (make sure your in neutral, coasting at 1-2 mph might help as well) if it still doesn't work check the actuator itself to see if the actuator is trying to engage. if the actuator is trying to engage but doesn't, take the actuator out and check it for wear or damage. if the actuator seems fine and it responds to the buttons when pressed i'd go after the transfer case control module as the culprit. ran into that a few times on those s-10's. 3 out of 4 that i've seen were fixed with a new tccm. 1 of the 4 needed an actuator, check your local junk yard for a working tccm or actuator.

hope this helps!

SOURCE: 4wd hi and lo buttons blink

This sounds like the electronic shift controller for the dif. I would get that looked at. Not sure the cost but i am sure they are not that cheap. If the lights are blinking and its not engaging that would be the first place i look.

My FWD Hi and Lo lights blink on and off while driving. It also won't switch into FWD.


The light blink's to warn its not properly out of 4WD. When the light blink's it is recomended you reverce a few meter's to allow the front axle to disengage.

2006 dodge 5.9L cummins auto 4wd when i start the truck srv 4wd sometimes comes on but you can hear the 4wd try to kick in. when driving down road it will randomly try to kick into 4wd. on time it...


Most likely the motor on the transfer case. You have several modules/computers that work the transfer case shifting. Since it is trying to shift, it narrows it down to 2 modules. The transfer case module and the motor module(the motor has a module built in). I do diagnostics, I have the tools to do it. I eliminate other possibilities. Wires and such. I place more motors, than all the others combined. It is the most abused electrical part of a 4x4 vehicle. And it is on the bottom of the vehicle.

97 GMC Z71 4X4 Not Locking in


If it's a shift - on - the - fly 4wd, then call your local Chevy truck dealer. There was a recall on the Electronic 4wd on these trucks. (common problem). Try this just for the heck of it. With the truck stopped, put in 4hi/lo, then put it in reverse. Back up slightly, (about 5ft or so) and then put it in drive (or first in a manual trans) and go forward. Did it lock in? If it locks in but won't unlock, try backing up to unlock. Hope this helps.
