    Sheesh they sound worse than monkeys ..monkey do better than that. Hey check the ground for the 4x4 system..follow harness to ground ..think it is on driver side frame. Will have grounds on intake at thermostat area and maybe behind the ac pump. Just run a ground from engine to chassi and frame that you can see. More grounds the merrier..you should see a state police car ..grounds everywhere i mean all over but the need for radios lights ect.
    If you read link i left maybe ground location for 4x4 system in it.

    Unbelievable! I disconnected my batteries for a few hours and when I reconnected them everything worked!

    Rebooted the trucks computer I suppose.

    That's Bodacious- aka Bodie. Handsome Brothers.jpg He's quite the tournament hunter as is his brother Trapper. Cali was a previous springer I had the good fortune to raise.

    Thanks- I train mine, as best I can. We do a little work most every day and hunt quail and pheasant when the season comes around. Tournament hunting extends our season a bit. They have a wall of trophy's and ribbons and are only 3 and 4. Its pretty cool when they come home with both 1st and 2nd. :D (Now if fixing my truck was only so easy- lol)

    registered to say thanks to all those in this thread that have provided info in the past. was able to quickly and easily diag and fix my nonworking 4wd today.

    i have a 95 k2500 that wasn't going into 4wd. fuse for 4wd was good and fluid levels were fine in both front axle and transfer case. put the truck into 4wd, turned the key to on, and then crawled underneath. wasn't able to turn the front driveshaft so i was able to rule out the ball switch. double checked that i had 12v at the actuator, which i did, then i pulled it and bench tested. putting 12v to the actuator did absolutely nothing so off to the parts store i went. it really was a 5 minute job to install the new actuator and now my 4wd works flawlessly. thanks again everyone. it honestly took me longer to run to the parts store for a new actuator than it did to diag the 4wd. i'm ready for the snow now ;)
