There is an updated actuator for these, the originals had issues See diagram below Hello my name is evan and I have a chevy 4x4 all time drive. You can get a new one at a parts store Napa but they arent cheap. And he grounded it out to one of the starter bolts. General Comments: This truck looks and sounds great I've put a 40 series Flow master on it. I put the truck in low range out in a field and let it creep in 1st gear, and I hopped out and the shaft is definitely not turning. .
Hopes this helps I have got a 1994 chevrolet 1500 four wheel drive pickup and have been having some problems with the four wheel drive it will not go into four wheel drive I replaced the acuator switch in it but it did not do any good it still won't go into four wheel drive checked the fuses all good and my cousin tested the wires and he is saying I am not getting any electrical current he is saying that it is a bad wire somewhere between the fuse box and the front axle the transmission is going in and my four wheel drive shaft is locking in but the four wheel drive will not go in I was wondering if you could tell me what is wrong with it Hi, on my K1500. I didn't have any luck locating the tutorial but the Amazon link for the actuator is still valid. Dec 19, 2009 I have a 19934x4 bought it with 4 wheel drive notworking. All it took though, was to take my old harness and wire it to the new shift actuator. It was a job but can be done yourself.
The vacuum actuator is removed from the front axle tube. The old style thermal has two wires coming out of it. ?? Note: The wire harness kit also includes a spacer that needs to be inserted into the differential before installing the actuator. This is in fact the easy way to tell usually if its the switch, or the actuator. A fuel solenoid was replaced at about 110,000 but was also covered under warranty. Most likely the problem is the electric actuator on the front differential very very common you can put transfercase in 4wd and then use a test light on the front diff actuatoir and see if there is power and ground at the actuator and if there is then replace the front differential actuator.
Yes Review Date: 26th March, 2004 Faults: Alternator burned out at 80,000. Here is a picture of what I have for 4wd. These are very easy to change - just thread out the old one, and thread in a new one. Year of manufacture 1994 First year of ownership 1994 Most recent year of ownership 2001 Engine and transmission 5. You can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with common tools. Align the notch by turning the ignition slightly until the small notch is aligned with the sensor, then you can remove the 2 screws and the sensor.
They are usually covered with dirt and need to be scraped. The second picture was online but it is exactly the same thing. I have one of each the new style and old style front actuator kicking around and was wondering how each works when wired up. Underneath the car attached to the drivetrain, they are subject to extreme temperature change as well as physical damage from dirt, debris, rocks, etc. Wiper motor blew out at 67,000 but was under warranty. The wipes don't always come on or go off. Here's a pic showing the T-case switch location.
I could use 4x4 if I immediately engaged once I started the truck, but if it ran for more than 5 minutes then I would get the service 4x4 message. Original proof of purchase is required. I get all my parts from them!!! Just a better design or are the front diffs different yielding the change in actuators? One thing to consider is that the factory in Canada builds them differently for B. I've put almost 50,000kms on this truck and it has treated me very well. Truck is tough as nails and just keeps on going. I changed this part along with the transfer case motor. You can replace this yourself!! Once you remove the rotor button you will notice the cam sensor.
Does anyone have a diagram of what each pin does? He put everything together we started it and had no luck. A few weeks ago I decided to see how long it would take for the thermal actuator to engage the front differential. Even with that snag, I would still rate it overall as excellent. A fuel solenoid was replaced at about 110,000 but was also covered under warranty. We burnt up a brake box and that's when the cruise problem started.
Cheers, Ken Hi thanks for the response. Catalytic converters cannot fail on there own and the original cause of failure must be repaired to prevent repeated converter failure. The cruise control frequently won't work if the driver had previously hit the brakes firmly or was on the brakes for too long like at a stop light. Engaging the transfer case and pulling the Posi-Lok handle will slide the shift fork and collar to connect the freewheeling right axle to the driven left axle. Commercial, heavy duty, custom, or off road vehicle use voids the warranty.
