4WD Warning Light - Silverado

5 posts in this topic

Since I've been on the road alot the past 6 months with the new job I hardly ever drive my '00 Silverado. But occasionally these past couple of months the "4WD Check Light" comes on. A mechanic told me that sometimes when the Chevys sit for awhile this happens and to just pull the fuse and put it back in to clear it.

Is this a common problem and is there a simple fix or should I have this looked at before winter?

Thanks!

If it's a push button, the switches have been known to go bad.

My 2003 Avalanche which would be the same system has been doing the same thing occasionaly the last few years.Had it checked the first time and was told it was real common and not to worry unless it stayed on or became more frequent. Haven't had any issues 4WD works fine when I need it.

I have a 2000 that did the same thing. Brought it in and was told most likely switch or some sensor in the transfer case. Mine was the sensor and was like $80 to replace. When I picked it up I asked how common the sensor failure was and was told very!

    • Dishwasher for me if I don't get to them right away like thirdeye.
    • I sprayed mine almost a month ago.  An ortho product that seamed to work.  All that's left is the dead grass it choked out.

    • We spent the past week in Door County Wisconsin on vacation with 4 other couples and our campers. I had it all lined up for 6 members of our group to go out on a chartered fishing trip in the early morning of Thursday. The charter called me at 8:00 Wed. evening to inform me that the boat had broken down and wouldn't be fixed until later that day and there were no available re-scheduling opportunities until Monday.    GGGRRRRRRRR!!!!!!!!!!
    • Well looks like the draft came and went without much fireworks, sounds like Fletcher didn't like any of the offers so he is going to wait to make a move. Hard to see us fitting under the cap or filling out a full team without moving Scandella or Pommers so we will see what happens.

      Of course drafting from the 3rd round on doesn't lead to many super exciting players but it sound like we got a couple midgets with some skill and several projects. Our big off season move might have been keeping everyone through expansion. 
    • My only concern is the timing of all of this. We seem to be loading up for a run in the next year or two but the Warriors are still sitting there stacked beyond belief.  Can we add enough and develop our young guys enough to be a legit threat to the Warriors.  Lebron, Irving, and Love barely made the Warriors break a sweat in the finals.  I'd like to see them time their final acquisitions to correspond with the end of the Warriors run. 
    • Maybe line up all the non-compliant VW's and gas 'em all out with diesel fumes. 
    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
