Did this video help you?

1A Auto Parts: Christian Helser I have a 1990 Chevy 2500 and I went to turn my 4x4 on which is on the ground and the light never turned on and it still is 2 wheels drive. Any advice I should look for or do to fix it? You may want to check the fuse on that circuit to see if it's blown and needs to be replaced. If that's okay, you may want to test the power going to the switch, with a test light or an ohm meter. If there's power going to the switch and none coming out of the switch when it is pressed, you may have a bad switch. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

1A Auto Parts: @ Logan Stone love your videos, thanks. I have a 1999 silverado 2500 and the 4wd buttons are not lighting up and its not going in 4wd. It say "service 4wd" in the display in dash. i replaced a blown fuse. checked other fuses and replaced the 4 button auto 4x4 controller on the dash. Do you have a guess on what it is or what i should replace next? Transfer case shift motor? any help would be great. Its snowing in Colorado and 4x4 is handy and fun. Thank you. You may want to pull the code from the computer. This should help to point you in the right direction as to what might be causing the problem. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

CERVECERO: Great Video By the way!!!!

ROCKIN BULL: I have a 98 chevy Z71. It has the push button selector, when i go to engage or disengage it will make a racket like it's hitting hard. Yes it goes into all selections. Also, what gear should the trans be in when switching in and out of 4X4? Can u give me a clue where to start to resolve this. Thanks!!!

alejandro ponce: I recently had my transmission rebuilt on my 2001 S10 4×4, now my 4×4 does not work, I changed the motor switch thinking it was the issue, I can hear it changing but will not engage the trnsfer case, I added 1 addition quart of transmission fluid just to be on the safe side that it may need more, do I need to add more fluid. What could be the issue, the tensfer case is not damged..

Mark Warren: question I have a 96 silverado K1500 with the shiftier on the floor. when i try to put it into 4x4 it grinds and little and the drops into 4WL but its not really in 4WL the motor acts like it is but the front axle is not truly engaged. any ideas on what it could be? 

Bradley Norris: how much would one cost for a 96 chevy 1500 z71?

Wesley Jones: my shift motor is bad so i just watched the video now im going to try wish me luck lol

geoff perna: my drive shaft wont spin freely, is that because I have not jacked my car all the way off the ground?

Daniel Ramos: hi, i have a 2006 chevrolet suburban 1500 and my problem is this, 4x4 switch lights turn on and then off, just the red light on neutral is on, and nothing works not even a sound, i have the switch changed and the 4x4 shift motor also, as you did on the video, first when i started the truck worked fine for the first five minutes and then it stopped working again, do you have any recomendation? please thanks for your time,

MontaWSr: I have a 2001 GMC Yukon XL and I'm having trouble figuring out if I need an actuator or replace transmission. I put it in gear and it will not move in reverse or forward. The first time it did it, I let it sit for a few hours and it moved about 35 feet then it wouldn't accelerate no more. When in gear it just idles and will not go. Please give me a plan of action. 

Randy Roupe: I could use some help here! I have a 2001 Chevy s-10 four wheel drive, and I started hearing a loud banging noise coming from my front end when I'm driving in 4x4, I changed the actuator and it still makes the noise and sometimes I noticed that the 4 hi light will go out while I'm driving at 65 to 70 mph! Any help is appreciated!

LISA SNIDER: hi my name is lisa, I just bought a 2000 s-10 chevy blazer, it is a 4x4 4wd also, the problem that I have it, I never had an 4x4 vechicle/suv. all the lights were flashing and if I get it over 30mph it will run right, under 20 mph it will hesitate and I have to force it to make go over 30. I had a lot of different answers saying it was the transmission, computer brain, and now the catalac converter could be stopped up. I don't know what the real problem is, can you please help me to find a better solution to this problem. Thanks Lisa 2000 S-10 CHEVY BLAZER, 4 DR, 4WD, 6 CYCLEDER

madsamoan26: Great video! My 2002 chevy tahoe when in 4wd is getting no power to the front wheels. The lights blink and work fine on the push buttons but on the dash where my blinker light flashes theres a light that says 4wd that lights up when you put it in 4wd. Well that light no longer comes on when put into 4wd. I cant seem to figure out whats wrong.

Fear Transport Service: I have 04 GMC 2500HD that has been grinding in 4H ,not in 2 or 4L and it dosen't seem like it's in 4 at all, also causes the rear to slip....any idea's?

Logan Stone: love your videos, thanks. I have a 1999 silverado 2500 and the 4wd buttons are not lighting up and its not going in 4wd. It say "service 4wd" in the display in dash. i replaced a blown fuse. checked other fuses and replaced the 4 button auto 4x4 controller on the dash.

Alex Heinen: I have pretty much the same truck, with a slight different problem. Everytime I click the buttons to swap to 4low or any other mode, nothing happens at all. No lights blink. No sounds are made. Any ideas whats wrong?

1A Auto Parts: It could be either the switch, transfer case shift motor or the physical transfer case is broken. You might want to bring it to someone to have them diagnose the issue for you.

Dustin Fancher: Great video! I just got my 02 Silverado. When I turn very sharp, I hear a rubbing/grinding noise, and sometimes the truck bounces a little. I can hear my shift motor working seemingly normal when I shift into 4-Hi. When I drive in 4-Hi I it feels a bit rough and like there's a rubbing/grinding noise. I cannot shift into 4-Lo. Everything else about the truck seems great! My uncle, who lives in a different city and used to be a mechanic, thinks like the turning issue may be 4x4 related. Thoughts?

Captain Burt: Very good you guys should sell dvd's on this kind of stuff

andrew jimenez: i have a 1994 chevy 1500 i have it in 2 high but it wont let me drive it will only go in reverse and 2 and 1 gear but when im go out of 2 gear and kick it into drive it will let me drive but when i stop i have to put it back into 2 gear to go again i need help on finding out what i need to fix it

Steven Cuttic: Since you're dropping the front drive shaft, it'd be a good time to switch out the u-joints if they haven't been done before. I've done my rear about 3 or 4 times in my 04 silverado but never the front. Maybe on a rainy day. Thanks for the video. I may replace my motor this summer or just pick up a spare just in case.

Dustin Fancher: Nevermind about the 4-Lo issue. I should read my manual! I need to be in neutral to engage. Never had a 4x4 before! Still have the turning issue.

Allan McCombs: Thanks for the video. My local professional wanted $500 for the motor, your site has it for ~$163. They also wanted 3 hours in labor costs and your video is 15 minutes, but with fast forwarding of the movie, you might have had the truck on the lift for 45 minutes. Unfortunately it is hard to find an honest mechanic these days.

Steves Beez: Hi Mike I don't hear anything could it be the switch? Thanks

ANorthernParadise: Hi, Mike! I was wondering about your take on turning a 2x4 Ford F150 to a 4x4 as it's sort of relevant to this. It seems like it wouldn't be impossible...

tmsexyman1: Mrajd1982 Try to put it into 4Lo with the engine turned off but with the key turned to the run position and if it goes into 4Lo try starting it to make sure that the 4Lo is working if its working i wouldn't worry about it my truck has been doing this for about 6 years

Joseph E. Ryan: wow what a job ahead I have coming up. Now I know why my truck wont go into 2hi and 2low Thanks Mike for the videos I am learning a lot.

Robyn Alborn: i have a 2003 chevy 2500hd and my actuator is good and it down shifts the gear ratio when put in 4lo and 4hi but i don't have power to the front wheels what could cause this.

Sonny Gimenez: Hi mike mine stack on 4Low how do I line mine up? And my button has 4 button instead of 3 button

Steves Beez: Great that you show diagnostics. That way you can tell if it is the switch or the motor, nice video Mike

1A Auto Parts: Thanks for watching. Have a great day! 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

MrAjd1982: my 2005 tahoe makes a loud clang clang sound, it goes into 4 HI and AUTO 4WD fine, only makes this sound when i try to go to 4 LO and will not go into 4 LO, any ideas?????

1A Auto Parts: Try to put the truck in reverse and back down the road a little ways. Sometimes this will disengauge the system for you.

1A Auto Parts: It might be an issue with the transfer case motor.

1A Auto Parts: It's not that bad of a job if you take your time. Thanks for watching. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

Sonny Gimenez: Hi mike mine stack on 4Low how do I line mine up? And my button has 4 button instead of 3 button. This is my second time I'm replacing mine the first time is true mechanic now it when out again why is that? This time I'm doing it my self and I'm going to video it and show it to you tube I need some in put from you I don't want to mess this thing up. Thanks for your video on you tube

1A Auto Parts: If you had a donor truck to take all of the parts from that would probably be the cheapest and easiest way to do this. It may be quite a bit of work though.

spelunkerd: Good for you, Mike, to include a few words about diagnostics.

Josh Lusk: I have an 04 yukon that occasionally while driving down the road it will go into neutral and will only in gauge into any gear if you switch to 4hi. Do you think it could be the switch or motor?

1A Auto Parts: You may want to inspect the gears in the transfer case. Hope this helps you out. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

mxrcody: I have a lifted 04 z71 and it will go into 4wd but when i move it makes a rattling noise kinda like a tin can hitting a rotating object. I have checked underneath and the noise is coming from inside the transfer case. Do you think its the motor is not engaging all the way or the actual transfer case is bad ?

rbrix1972: my truck is doing the same thing, but it goes into 4 high, but not 4 low. do I need to replace the shift case motor?

Sonny Gimenez: You make it look so easy

1A Auto Parts: You may want to see that when you do put it in 4WD that the front shaft locks into place, and the transfer case is engaging it correctly. 1aauto.com 888-844-3393

xmodriver: I like good how too vids ,, keep them up

RyanBurke: I was stuck in 4HI when mine stopped working. Had to replace 4x4 shift motor (mates with transfer case), 4x4 module (signaled by clicking sound under glove compartment in passenger wall) , and then the lights just blinked and I had to replace the 4x4 actuator (under the battery) . moral of the story... don't wait to fix it.

1A Auto Parts: It could be, you may want to test the power to the switch with a test light or an ohm meter.
