    Just got a 1999 suburban and the 4x4 light keeps flashing. It does ingauge the 4wd in 4h and 4l. when I took out the actuator it is in the extended position.How can I bench test the actuator. What does it need to sense for the light to stay on .

    Installed a new actuator worked for a few times now the actuator seems like it does not have enough power to engauge. Hooked it up directly from the battery still does not work. Going to see if they will waranty it. Otherwise will put old one back in so that it is always engage to be able to have 4wd.
