Service 4WD...Need help
Newbie here, just joined about an hour ago after reading quite a few interesting posts... i figureed I'd ask a question and see if i can get some useful input!
I drive a 1999 silverado 1500, and believe it or not; I am having problems with my 4 wheel drive. First off, I am 100% positave that it has nothing to do with the push button switch on the dash. Anyways here's the deal. Sometimes (maybe 30% of the time) when I start my pickup the amber colored light on the 2hi button is lit up, and I am able to switch between 2hi and auto 4wd. However, I am not able to get it into 4hi. The light on 4hi just flashes at me about 5 or 6 times when i press it while 2hi is lit up, then 2hi flashes 5 or 6 times then stays solid. The service 4wd message does not show up.
The other 70% of the time or so is a differnt story. As soon as i turn on my key on, the light on the auto 4wd button flashs for a fraction of a second and then i can hear relays behind the dash start to click. they click about 10 times and its almost to a rythem (im serious). Then as soon as i start my pickup they start clicking again, and then service 4wd comes on.
I recorded videos and posted them on youtube. The first one is a video of when i am able to switch from 2hi to auto. this is the link
Can somebody please let me know if they have heard of the same problem. I really dont want to go to the bank and refinance my pickup to buy a new TCCM and a new encoder motor or a new transfer case if i dont have to. Thanks for any help
