2011 Chevrolet Colorado
Well I finally purchased myself a Colorado 2 days ago and have been loving it so far. I bought it knowing about this issue and the previous owner seemed to be surprised by it when I was checking out the truck (he's 90 and put under 10k on it in the 5 years he's owned it). But when I put the truck is 4WD the light just stays flashing, I thought replacing the 4WD actuator would fix it but I had the same issue with the new one I installed today so I decided to return it. I tested both the old and new one and neither were moving when I would press the 4Hi button. I can hear a motor noise and click when I shift into 4WD but it doesn't engage, when I put it in 4Lo I get the usual clunk but that doesn't engage either, light just stays flashing. My uncle tested the actuator plug and said it was getting power but then later said it was getting power all the time so I don't know what to think of that. I've read a lot of threads on similar problems but can't seem to pinpoint what my issue may be. Would appreciate any help I could get so I can get my 4WD back up and running before the heavy snow hits here in Upstate NY!
