The 4 wheel drive does not work. When I push the 4wd button all I get is a clicking from the back (electic control modul?). I understand there is a self check. But how do u do that? And after I check that and it were to test good what does that point to next? The shift solinoid?

Do you

Look at the hubs first to see if they are locking in.

When did you last have the hubs serviced?

I never have inspected the hubs. Im not getting any lights on the buttons on the dash. I just did the self test on the ECM in the back. Got the blinking light indicating that it is functioning correctly.

Ok, then go to the hubs and have them checked. They need to be serviced often
