Re: 1993 Chevy S10 4x4 Pickup
All I ended up doing was cleaning my connections with contact cleaner and it started working and has been for the last 2 years. when it does crap out, I'll either put my spare 233 in or switch it to a 231 and ground the 4x4 signal wire to the computer on a micro switch. one thing to try is to remove your encoder motor but leave it plugged in and make sure it has a good ground. hit the swich and see if the encoder motor moves. if it moves there may be something keeping the range selector from moving smoothly. also check the wiring harness above the transmission near the bell housing for smashed wires. there is not much clearance in that location. if someone did a trans job or the motor was moved it could have pinched the wires.
when stopped trying to get into 4lo you do have it in neutral right.
Bigger tires and traction adders just means you get stuck in more inaccessible places.
