The problem is the same as my 98 GMC Jimmy. The $X$ Engagement motor at the transfer case is not working properly. Unfortunately the motor costs about $300. It was a poor design. This is a problem that occurs frequently with this system.

- Jerry's right. Identical diagnosis... I had the same thing happen on my '98 Chev Blazer. Cost me ~ $1000 total to get it replaced just over a year ago, but I had found a guy and that's all he does is transmissions and knew what he was doing... He came highly recommended. It was worth it to me tho... I've owned the car since 2000, trust it and want to keep it.... Plus, to have 4wd in these parts comes in real handy.

It could be the shift motor on the T Case. Or it could be the automatic shift button switch on the dash.

Well is it actually engaging into 4WD? If so, then you do simply have a problem with the lights. However, if you don't notice the transfer case engage, you may have a problem with either the push button system or the transfer case itself.

push the four wheel drive button on your dash, see owners manual

User Avatar

not sure i understand this question....the key must be turned to a certain point...the lights on the push button aren't considered a commonly used button so it must not have been a top priority.

there should be a button on your left of the steering wheel and if not, it doesn't have 4 wheel drive

i accidentally hit the button sometimes and dont know it til i am going. a few times i have gotten into 4low because i hit the button and as i was switching to drive, i passed neutral and it jumped. my 95 you had to hesitate on neutral.

User Avatar

check and make sure it contacts, theres not much room behind that button and any play may cause it not to connect, push the dash assembly around the button firmly with one hand and push the button with the other, does it light up and engage

most of those even though they are push button 4 wheel drive, they still work off of a vaccum. you need to have a local auto mechanic to take a look under the front end where the vaccum lines attach to the transfer case and see if they are unplugged or if there is a defected one.

4 wheel drive module located in the passenger side kick panel. Most likely condensation got in the plug. About 450.00 to replace it at a dealer! Checked on 7/27/07.

I have a 4 wheel drive Chevy Blazer 2001 that got stuck in 4 wheel drive, the only way I got it out was to put it into neutral and switch the 4 wheel drive button. It worked!!

The 4 wheel drive system on a 2002 Land Rover Discovery is engaged by pressing the 4 wheel drive button on the dash. It sends an electrical signal which activates the system.

The screws that hold the tail light in place are accessible only after you raise the hatchback or lower the tailgate. the screws are usually TORX drive

Depending on your model you either push a button on the dashboard or shift a lever on the floor. Since Chevy also made two wheel drive models you many not have a four wheel drive option. You should be able to shift at any speed, but I've always found it best to engage the 4wdr system at slow speeds on level ground and when the engine isn't under strain. I hope that helps.

Check the fuses. After that, check the plug-ins down below on the transfer case.
