Question about Chevrolet 1500
Yep,unplug it ,unscrew it ,plug it back in engage the 4x4 and watch,the piston should come out in like 2 seconds,kinda slowly ,it's a heated gas that extends it. Should come out with enough power to make it hard to stop with your hands. If it does come out,that's trouble ,shim out of place in the diff,
If it doesn't extend at all or only an inch or so ,it's the actuator. Should extend out far enough to make the rubber boot "wrinkle free".
If the actuator is ok,the axle housing has to come out.
If the truck is jacked up you can take the actuator out and engage the axle with a screwdriver or whatever ,just push on the piston where the actuator pushes ,should slide right in,only a small spring aginst it.
