4x4 Problems

55

Asked by Dec 05, 2007 at 09:25 PM about the 1994 GMC Sonoma 2 Dr SLS 4WD Extended Cab SB

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Driving in the snow the other day and I went to put it in 4x4 but it did not engage. Indicator lights were not lit on any selection as well (2hi, 4hi, 4lo). Pulled fuse to check for problems and didn't see any apparent problem and replaced. 2hi light came back on but still will not engage 4hi or 4lo. What should be the recommended process to check for problems? Thanks for your help.

I tryed that on my step dads truck and that was not the problem and I have no other idea of what could be wrong. And I am starting to think it's the transfor case

It could be a bad ecoder/shift motor. If its not the accuator... Or the switch on top of the transfer case.
