  1. Hello, I just signed up to get some help with my work truck. It's a 2005 Silverado 2500HD base model with the 6.0L auto and manual transfer case and has 280,000 kms. The issue I'm having is with the front axle actuator staying locked even with the transfer case in 2wd. I've had this issue for about a month now and previous google searches suggested that the actuator on the front axle might be the culprit so just today I tried replacing the actuator but that did not fix the problem. If I shift the transfer case into 4H and then back to 2H the dash light will go out briefly for a few seconds but then comes on again. Is there a sensor or switch on or inside the transfer case that might have gone bad? Is there a way to test the wiring from the transfer case to the axle actuator? I did notice a wiring plug near the linkage on the transfer case and I pulled it to check for corrosion or water or anything but it was clean and looked fine, I put in some dielectric grease and plugged it back in. The wiring plug into the axle actuator was clean and dry as well. I'm kind of out of ideas now and am hoping someone here may have had the same issue and knows of a fix. TIA
  2. Having a 4wd issue not sure whats goin on. Truck seems to not be goin into 4wd can hear the actuator trying. The selector knob shows its in an shifting in an out then get a information message that 4wd is off. An no code are showing. Havent been able to find anyone else with this issue. Tried pulling the 4wd trec fuse an battery.
  3. Ok I have a 2000 gmc jimmy sle and my 4wd doesn’t work there is no light and also no sound when I click the button but it’s my dads old truck and now mine and he said the old owner melted the wiring harness but I have no idea where it is too fix it could someone help me please (I would only like to fix the 4wd wiring it’s the only thing I care about)
  4. My battery died when it was well below -20 on my way home from work, I was in 4hi at the time my truck shut off and stalled. The following day my dad and I went out and tried to jump start my truck but that didn't work so we ended up just putting a new battery in. Ever since then none of the 4x4 modes in the truck will work, the light changes on the button like it switched but I don't feel the actual 4x4 engaging. I tried 4lo which works some times, 4hi just doesn't work, and when I try to use the auto4x4 it makes a whining or whirling noise and I'm scared to go over 5mph. Also there is now a rattling noise coming from what sounds like the front passenger area. This is kind of an urgent issue because I live in the middle of no where Iowa where no one bothers to plow the roads so working 4x4 is a necessity. My truck is a 2002 Silverado 1500.
  5. I have a 04 chevy 2500 & my 4wd don't work. Here's what I did if I raised all four tires up & put the truck in drive all four wheels turn but if you lower the front tires to the ground they stop & the back tires keep turning. I know the problem is in my transfer case but not sure where. The transfer case doesn't make any noise. I've owed this truck for three years & last year put new chain & gears in the transfer case. It drives fine in 2wd . Yes front end actuator is working
