Even with the o ring removed the sensor but would not seat flush to the transfer case when tightened. I don't know if the ground is a problem on these trucks or not. The sensor in the old housing bottomed out at hand tight. I think it was a 62 Comet. Or leak in a vacume line or unhooked. When i put the gear on regular the trunk going in front like the gear Drive.

If I were near enough, I would drive up and help you with this. I can't get to involved. The way this actuator works, is it is a sealed chamber that gets heated by voltage. No I did not bleed the brakes, I never took anythign off other than the shoes. .

SOLVED: The 4wd in my 1996 chevy silverado 1500 wont work

1996 chevy 1500 4x4 not working

Now, it is normally not too hard to change out a master cylinder. The light never went on, and I could tell it never engaged still could spin the rear tires. Problem is that i have no idea where to locate it. But, if you got them back together properly, and if they were ok to begin with, there should be no residual problem. The 4wd light on the shifter comes on as a result of the collar in the axle sliding over from the actuator engaging.

Answer best left to if and when you manage to recognize and perform the needed repairs. Is that hard to replace? From what I have read this seem to be the problem in most cases for the front axle not to engage. If there is power but no pump running Id say the pump is bad. It looks like there has been some tranny work done to it in the past. There are not that many videos out there so some helped but passing this info on, last uninstall and install took 1.

All the forward gears work fine including overdrive, all appropriate gears have engine braking and the trans upshifts and downshifts ok. I had an issue where my lights would come on and off, ide bang on it and sometimes it would work. I know its a bit old, but this trouble shooting may help me with my 2010. Some people have problems remembering what direction you turn normal bolts or bleeders to get them off. I have a 1995 chevy 1500 4x4 350 engine and 150,000 miles with the 4l60e trans. I got a question I have the manual 4wd shift in my 05 Z71 when I engage it it engages real easy but I don't hear it engage or feel it but when I shift from park to drive I can feel it shift but I have no 4wd drive my back tires spin no light on my dash comes on or anything does anyone have any clue what my problem might be? Lots of people have twisted off nuts and bleeders thinking they were loosening them when indeed they were torqueing down on them.

Looks like the T case is fine after all, so it's probably the actuator, right? However, it requires a small harness addition, a spacer, and a new actuator. But like I said above. Now for the hard stuff. After he did that it showed 12 volts. Or Bad vacuum switch on top of the transfer case. The rear one, in these systems, is pulled into the drum surface and gives the most braking effect.

1996 chevy 1500 4x4 not working

Ever since that day when i go to engage the 4wd system it just clics and the 4wd hi light just flashes but will not go into 4wd. Any suggestions on what i should do. That can be repaired or replaced at a fairly low price. You are taking your life in your hands when you do this. The brake light switch is not properly installed, or adjusted properly. Or maybe with the jack or jack stand some how you got the actuator unlpugged. Post Reply nate712 welcome to Super Chevy: If the trans has 150,000 your best bet is to yank it out or take it to a trans shop.

How to fix the 4WD on a 1996

Wire 50 brown is the 12v feed, and it conducts to the light blue wire 900 to the actuator. I'd be willing to bet that anyone who encounters this problem will find the solution only through tracing ground connections within the harness. But he had to use a ground on his meter because their was no ground getting to it. I was assuming the opposite: pin at the bottom. Kind of surreal to watch your truck drive along without you in it. If the pedal begins to creep to the floor, that is a very good indication the master cylinder is toast. I'll try the fuses ect first.

When I press 4w high, the light selector works and goes to high, but the 4wd is not engaged the front tires do not spin? Post Reply Thank you for that info. There is no need to loosen adapter housing unless it is cracked as ours was, if adapter is cracked that requires crossmember drop and tranny jack to hold transmission up because adapter housing sits on motor mount and bolts to transmission, change rubber O ring on front of adapter is all. Brakes seem to work, but like I said the pedal sinks when holding it. There is either a bad ground or a short to ground somewhere in the wiring harness. It could be because you put the shoes on backwards.
