there are 2 conectors at the frt diff,1 goes to the actuator and the other to the little switch that lights up the indicator beside the t case shifter ,remove the actuator and connect it to the connector,key on,put it in 4wd ,actuator should extend ,chk for power if does not extend, replace th actuator if it does not extend with power to it ,if no power look on top of t case for the switch that gets activated when put in 4wd,that switch powers up the frt diff actuator,check for power to that switch ,power should go in & out when in 4wd ,replace this switch if it does not put power thru to the frt diff actuator,good luck,your GM tech -Rob-
