04 silverado stuck in 4HI

Asked by Apr 05, 2018 at 04:59 PM about the 2004 Chevrolet Silverado 1500

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

I have an 04 silverado, and I am stuck in 4wd. I have the push button option
and the light is telling me im in 2wd but I know without a doubt that im still in
4HI. Every now and then my lights will move from 2HI to auto 4 and back to
2Hi while driving down the road, but now none of my buttons will work. I have
pushed the 4HI 4LO 2HI and Auto 4 buttons but no lighting nor engaging takes
place, put it in nuetreal and reverse ect.. it still says im in 2wd. I cant switch
out of 2wd on my push button, but Im still driving in 4HI. I also have what
sounds like a ticking noise coming from under my truck which leads me to
believe it may be my transfer case. Another problem is I sometimes hear a
grinding noise in my front end when it says im in auto 4... any thoughts?

Sounds like the actuator motor failed. It's bolted to the transfer case.

I replaced the actuator motor and it is allowing me to change just fine.... but now when im in 4wd, It wont move in reverse, the engine just revs. And when im in drive it wants to jerk forward, stop moving, then jerk forward agian... thinking it might actually be my transfer case. Any thoughts?

Sounds like you have the actuator motor and the transfer case not in sync with each other.
