No 4x4
 
HALP! 4x4 not engaging. Replaced the front diff actuator. Can hear the transfer case switch when itís not running. 15 amp fuse is good. The service 4wd is not on. The buttons on the dash work as they should. Itís telling me to service the brakes on the dash with both the abs and parking brake lights on. Iím stuck in my driveway so any help would be great. Thank you!

Does the actuator actually go in/out when switching between 2 and 4wd?


Also, try shifting into 4wd (you may want to move the truck a little to get the gears to engage), then lift up one of the front wheels and try to spin it and see what happens.




If the wheel doesn't spin, you are in 4wd
If the wheel spins, and the front driveshaft spins with it, then most likely the chain in the transfer case broke.

If the wheel spins, and the front driveshaft doesn't spin (and you shouldn't be able to spin it by hand either), then the front axle isn't locking. If the actuator moves in/out correctly, then most likely the locking gear the actuator moves is broken, or the passenger side stub axle is broken.

Help diagnose it Can you pull the codes. Most readers can’t pull brake codes.
How are your batteries.
Front wheel hubs tight.
Ground wire under the drivers side cab mount.

Google (duramax service brake system abs Light parking light flashing) or (Duramax ABS Light and brake light) lots to read.
