    2001 silverado stuck in 4WD

    Hey guys, i wanted to see if anyone can help me. So last summer my drive shaft got totaled and I replaced it with a new one. When I got my truck out of the shop it wouldn't go out of 4WD, the mechanic said it will kick in later and now 3-4 months later and the truck is still in 4WD and has service 4WD light on. I recently found out when i start the truck after checking the wire behind the pad to change from 4WD to 2 WD and so on that when I start the car I get a second where the lights blink.

    Having access to a scan tool that can read DTCs from the transfer case control module would make life a lot easier.

    The pushbutton switches, and the encoder motors(what actually changes ranges on the transfer case) were both very common failures on those trucks. Either one will make it unable to shift.
    You can remove the encoder motors and manually shift it in to 2wd if you need to.
