    97 Gmc Sonoma Is Stuck In 4 Wd Drive

    Hi, My truck is stuck in 4 wd, I have an automatic tranny. First of all I think this might help.... My hubby was pulling a small trailor with small goats, AC ,RADIO,CB, Everything on. To get up the hill, he Put it in 4wd. Then he could not get it out. Then driving home anyway, The battery is going dead. He barely made it home. Alternator went out, so I replaced that. runs fine, But still stuck, what do i do???? Any ideas?????

    Sounds like your actuator is frozen. Need to take some electrical readings at the wires and see if it is getting the signal or not. If it is not then probally the relay under the hood.
    Window tint its for window, Not for tail lights. Don't be that guy .
