My truck had the same exact issue when about 2 years old. Took it to the dealer and the computer showed an issue with the 4WD push button switch (I have push button 4wd, no shifter). Dealer replaced the switch and it has worked fine ever since. I believe there is actually a tech bulletin with GM on this issue. Your truck is probably not under warranty anymore but if you can find the bulletin and take it to the dealer with you, they should fix the issue at no cost.

4wd lights are not on


!st of all, I really hope you are NOT driving on dry pavement with your 4x4 engaged. 2nd if you're trying to engage the 4x4 and your getting the service 4x4 light, it's telling you that it will not engage the 4x4. Hook up a code reader to your ECU and find out what's up. More than likely if you have the push button 4x4, your servo motor to engage the 4x4 is not working. If you're mechanically inclined buy a service manual and dig in, if not take it to the GM dealer before it becomes totally FUBARED

I just bought an 06 eddie bauer explorer with 43,000 miles. the 4x4 lights in instrument panel do not come on at start up and do not light up when 4X4 buttons are pushed. The 4X4 low button has a light...


It depends on whether or not the drive train is actually going in to 4x4 mode. If the 4x4 is working properly, I would think it is just burned out light bulbs and not an issue with the operation of the system.

Why does the service 4X4 light keeps coming on I have change oil in transfer case as is reqired and 4X4 works fine


this light is truned on due to a problem with the engagement motor of the transfer case, either the motor has stopped working or the contacts that sense when the case is engaged are burnt, u will need to replace the the electric transfer case actuator in most cases to repair this problem
