Transfer case(263HD GM) is shifting, rear differential is working. Front end isn't engaging. It popped in & out several times before it finally quit entirely. How/what manual test can I use to troubleshoot the electrical shift system & Isolate the problem. I replaced the Actuator(?) Switch/component. Not it
Do you

Scan the PCM/TCM for code/s-possibilities here could be the transfer case shift control module, transfer encoder motor and the transfer case encoder-also see transfer case diagnostic system check below

Ok, I have a Code Buddy CAN OBDII Code Reader 901ES (I know it's cheap). When plugged inthe tool doesn't comunicate w/ the CAT, HCM, EVAP, 2AIR or theA/C. Why? This Vehicle has been involved in an odometer rollback scam so I know the computer has been tampered with. However I don't know if the lack of comunication is due to the tampering or my cheap code reader. The Vehicle has been into 2 dealerships since I've owned it & neither one caught the odometer tampering. It VIN# will help it is 1GCHK29U02E231162

C0226 ABS Left front speed sensor missing. Would this cause problem. O'Reilley's/Shucks Auto parts store has a fee of $10 to access some parts of their loaner Code Reader. Does anyone know what it accesses for the 10 bucks? My Vehicle has to cycle before I can go any further lol.

Dunno if its related but the ABS light should be On if there's a failure on the ABS-if missing it has to be replaced
