Drive Train Axles Bearings problem
2002 Chevy Silverado V8 Four Wheel Drive Automatic 128000 miles
Ran truck into snow drift recently, spent half an hour rocking back and forth in 4W-Auto while waiting for tow (never revved past 2500 rpm, didn't really strain anything). Winched me out easily enough, left truck in 4W_auto but put tranny in neutral, only pulled me backwards a few feet to get out of the drift. Since then, no 4WD. No lights on 4WD switches on dash, blown ATC fuse.
A " friend of a friend" hooked up a code reader which reported that it couldn't communicate with the transfer case encoder motor.
Most likely replace the encoder motor?
