My light has been on for a few days, won't go into 4wd and now it automatically shuts off my traction control. Love that posi-traction rearend in the snow.......reminds me of learning to drive with dads car back when there were only rear wheel drive cars
Push the buttons a few times and turn the truck off and then turn it on again and see if the 2wd light is on. I always know when mine isnt working cause the light is out. I suggested that cause before I knew what was going on I tried pushing the buttons.
My guess is RainDelay nailed it. When I took my 2003 in (after 3 tries) for the same problem it was finally the 4wd module being replaced that cured it. Somewhere on the Avalanche forum there's a thread that touched on this. Mine went into 4wd and wouldn't come out - no fun on dry pavement.

That's the reason why some part stores will let you "borrow" the code reader, so they aren't liable. I just had to go through the same thing on my brother's 03, hopefully it's just a switch, his transfer case had a hole in it.
Sometimes you can take the dash switch apart, clean it up inside and get it working again. If your a tinkerer, take the switch apart and see what you find. If not, stop by a parts store and get the codes.
