    Default engaging itself into 4 wheel drive

    i have a 2001 chevy silverado 4x4 with the np2 transfer case that has the manual shift lever on the floor. i just replaced the transmission and the other day i was driving down the road and the 4 wheel drive light came on and transfer case started trying to put itself into 4 wheel drive. i couldn't get the light to go off so i crawled underneath and pulled a plug off the top side very back of the transfer case, what looked like a sensor and the light went off but the truck feels like its being held back when you drive it. whats causing it to shift itself into 4 wheel drive

    Have you checked the bushing's on the manual t/case linkage? Since your truck is a 2001 they may be worn out.
