Hello. I suggest further inspecting the TCCM and connector. The lights on the 4X4 switch flash when the transfer case cannot complete a shift. The incomplete shift could be caused from the encoder motor not functioning properly. The TCCM is what controls the shifting. If there is corrosion on one of the wires, that can cause a poor connection and skew the voltage or ground readings.
Disconnect the TCCM connector and check for any corrosion on the pins of the TCCM. If you see corrosion there,you will need a new TCCM. If only the wire to the TCCM is corroded,replace the corroded portion of the wire and put on a new terminal end. The terminal ends can be purchased at your local Chevy dealer.
After the repairs are made,test the 4X4 system operation. If it still has the flashing lights,follow this chart below.
