Why won't my 2004 Envoy switch into 4WD?

Asked by Jan 24, 2013 at 07:42 AM about the 2004 GMC Envoy 4 Dr SLT 4WD SUV

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Everytime I go to switch my Envoy into 4WD the light on the switch blinks for about 20 seconds and then just switches back to 2WD and then my Service 4WD light comes up on my dash. It's in the middle of winter and I could really use my 4WD and I can't!!

When it is blinking it attempting to engage the 4WD and for whatever reason it does not engage, it gives up and goes bank to regular 2 WD and stops blinking. There is an excellent article at: http://gmtnation.com/f79/4wd-not-working-step-inside-107/ that is full of information that will help you
