Hello everyone,

I just bought an '04 TB LS 4x4, when I first drove it everything worked fine. then the next day I had the blinking selector lights then it goes dark, when I switch to another mode the light would blink above it and then go off. This went on for about a day.
Then I read about the clearing the contacts, so i did that. The first time it still did the blinking/no light thing. After I did it about two more times over the course of the day. They lights came on and everything worked fine until this morning...when it started doing the blinking/no light on the selector switch thing again....

Which issue is this, (TCCM or Switch) b/c I have a limited warranty from the dealer and I want to know if I should get them to pay for or is it something I could just do. (basically I want to know if I have to replace the TCCM, or do I just need to check the fuse, etc..) Also, I live about 2 hrs from the dealer where I bought the TB (its near my hometown, I moved to the city where the college I went to was located)

Thanks!! :)

you should be able to take it in to any chevy dealer if it came with a GM certified used warranty

More likely it's the front axle actuator or the encoder motor on the transfer case, but those are not so easy to diagnose and will cost you $100-200 if you start swapping parts without a clear diagnosis. I'd try to schedule it to visit the dealer if they owe you.

I wish it did, that would make my life easier.

Oh ok, well I will give them a call today then. Gotta catch them before 30days/3000miles.
