#92 of 115 1999 Chevy Blazer Transfer Case
Oct 01, 2010 (7:58 pm)
Recently I changed the chain in my transfer case. I re-installed it and it was stuck in 4 low it would not ingage into 2 whl dr or 4 high So I took it apart again and noticed the forks were pretty tight, after awhile of messing with the 2 bolts that hold the forks i loosend it up. Put it back together again and now it is stuck in 4 high and well not ingage into any other gear. Both times I took the transfer case out I had the vehicle in park, I was told the buttons on my dash had to be in neutral. Whats Wrong:(
#93 of 115 2000 Jimmy stuck in 4hi

My Jimmy has this tendency to stick in 4hi. A couple of times it fixed itself when in a warm garage, but it did it again in July. It clicks and something under the car (t-case motor) purrs like it is working or trying to but still in 4hi. We fixed it with a hair dryer but now it is stuck again and I can't get it back to 2hi. I just bought a transfer case motor, took off the old one. Getting it off and the drive shaft out of the way was not a big problem. Before I put on the new one - can I take the old one somewhere to get it checked out? The new one says it comes in 2hi mode and I need to set the transfer case to match. According to the new motor I AM in 2 hi because the tab matches the slot. So why am I really in 4hi? I just don't want to pay for a part I don't need.
#94 of 115 2000 blazer np8 transfer case stays in Auto 4WD

Hey guys. Wonder if anyone can help with this. I have the 4-button (with Auto 4wd) transfer case and it always stays in auto. It shifts through 2wd high, 4wd high and 4wd low but always ends up going back to Auto 4wd all by itself. I've had it to 2 different transmission places and have replaced 1) the buttons 2) the encoder 3) the tccm module (actually swapped with a buddy's blazer - the upgraded module, not the original hi failure one). Nothing has helped. Has anyone heard of this problem before? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance.

#96 of 115 2004 Blazer 4WD Not Engaging with Button
Dec 15, 2010 (6:49 am)
I have a 2004 Chevy Blazer with push button 4WD. Last winter in the NE we had a ton of snow and I used the 4WD a lot.
Once winter was over I attempted to push the button to engage 2WD and it would not go. My buddy who has a 2500 HD Silverado told me how to do it and it worked. The problem is that now when I push the 4WD button it will not engage the 4WD.
I have two small children and with winter upon us in the NE I need to get this repaired. A co-worker had a Blazer and it had a similar problem that he said cost about $150 to fix.
Does anyone have an idea of what it could be and could an average auto guy do it himself?
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

#99 of 115 Chevy Blazer 4 WD Issue Resolved
Jan 04, 2011 (3:13 am)
I was experiencing the same issue as many Blazer/Jimmy owners (push button 4WD not engaging). I thought it might be an actuator.
I took it to a mechanic and lo and behold it the diagnostic test revealed a bolt needed to be removed and replaced.
Now it is working fine and a very inexpensive repair.
#100 of 115 Re: 1995 Chevy Blazer S-10 4WD not engaging [chevyride22]

I just had the same exact issue. The vacuum line that runs behind the engine had fell against the exhaust manifold and melted a hole in it. There was a palstic union there and i disconnected it and shortened the vacuum line 3 inches where it was melted and reconnected it, there was plenty of extra hose on mine. Problem solved.
The vacuum line runs down the passanger side by the transmission dipstick tube and transmission lines, i didnt need to trace it any further. Cut the vacuum line start the car with 4x4 engaged and check for vacuum and reconnect it with a union.
