2000 Chevy 1500 truck stuck in 4wd low

55

Asked by Oct 10, 2014 at 11:53 PM about the 2000 Chevrolet Silverado 1500 Reg Cab Long Bed 4WD

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

2000 Chevy seems to be stuck in low 4wd. The switch has been replaced. When press 2wd button, it only flashes, which I understand to mean that it will not disengage the front wheels, to 2wd. Can anyone tell me what might be the problem? Or what I can test to find out what the problem is? Once before a similar thing occurred and the switch was bad, it was replaced and all was fine. Now just months later this happens. Any help would be much appreciated.

I assumed it was an automatic. Start the truck, put in neutral, push 4 high, put it into drive and pull forward a good 10-20 feet and see if it jumps into 4 high. Then try 2wd button and see if it goes into 2wd. If this doesn't work try it again but go into reverse instead of drive.
