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

Rasin Kanes Renegade Rebel: what if there is no sound when you push the button? mine does nothing, no sound, the lights on the push button selector does nothing. its dead in the water so to speak

Kevin Joubert: How do I know if the problem is the motor or the control module? My 2005 Chevy Suburban will shift from 4 HI to Auto4WD and back, but will not go to 2WD or 4 LO. The button just flashes for several seconds after pushing, but it doesn't shift and stay lit up. 

Lightening Jack: frontt end whines all the time on my 04 yukon i changed the fluid and found no metal flakes but its sttill loud had it inspected no play found in the hub assemblies what is it

Lee Bailey: Great Videos. I have a problem similar to this. 05 Sierra 215k miles. My buttons have been working off and on for a few months. Today, when working and going at highway speed the transfew case shifted into neutral on its on and I lost all power to wheels. Pressed Auto 4WD, power returned and got home. Tried again later and same thing happened. Transfer case shift motor? 4WD Axle Actuator? Software issues? Thanks for your time

Brandon Herrera: I have a 2004 1500 Chevy z71 5.3 l V8, when I try to put my truck into 4x4 absolutely nothing happens. No matter what button I push, (4hi, 4lo, or auto) no lights blink it doesn't shift into 4x4. I don't hear any sounds like you have showed here in the video. It doesn't try to shift, it will not make any attmept. I have a service 4x4 light on. Can you shed any light on this for me please and thank you.

tysonpeter: i have an 05 silverado and having trouble with my 4wd. service 4wd comes up on cluster and stays there, no lights on the switch because the fuse blows. Thinking its the transfer case motor but not sure. Was having trouble earlier trying to get her in 4wd but after some time she would eventuallly go in, but now no dice. Think the motor is my probem? how much does one usually go for, theres a napa here in town that might have them, thanks.

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

Jerromi Long Hair: would this help for a 97 2door tahoe

Shovelhead: I have a 06 1500 hd .... On a recent hunting trip it would not stay locked in 2 wheel drive only for a mile then jump out and make a grinding noise. Much like gears toggling. Made it home in auto 4 wheel drive, and 4 h worked but locked up hard. Truck has 49000. Would that still point towards the drive motor? BTW...... Great videos!

Sueanne Crawford: All I need to know is how long it takes!!!!

Kristofer Hoffman: Hey my 99 chevy Silverado doesn't like to disengage the four wheel drive, when it does though it make a loud clunk and is as if hit a speed bump. Any ideas?

Jeff Sablan: I have a 2001 Chevy Blazer. Is the "shift" motor the same as the "encoder" motor? My 4HI does not engage. I already changed the actuator diaphragm and the cable. Still nothing. When I press the 4HI, it just blinks. I don't hear anything. What should I check next?

filiprx2: I have a Blazer LT 99 and i just changed the transfer case shift motor, but now my switches buttons wont light up? i checked all the fuses and i did replace the switch it self, any ideas?

Shovelhead: Thanks for the past response! Guess I should have noted that there was and still isn't a check engine. Thanks again.

nickie amos: My god doesn't anyone know or even map wear that stupid vacuum line runs from the tranny to the front of the motor to the front axle

Bill M: I can't get the splines to line up between the new shift motor and the transfer case. It doesn't seem possible to turn either one of them.

mustang0wnage1: Awesome vid

Abdulla Al rumaithi: very good job 

CERVECERO: Great Video By the way!!!!

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,

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

CERVECERO: So my 03 Yukon sometimes goes right to 4lo when i start it and wont go to 2hi untill i shut it off and wait a few minutes to restart. Im guessing this is my problem. I also read about a part called a transfer case encoder ring??? any idea where this part may be located and what it does? Oh, and how do i determine what part numer (shift motor) to buy? It appears theres 2 diferrent ones? 

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!

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?

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.

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. 

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?

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.

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!!!

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? 

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

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

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..

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.

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.
