Sounds like an antitheft problem I would start with the antitheft system. Usually when you only have one key all keys have to be programmed together even the original. When you have more than one it is easy to program additional keys.

SOURCE: push button 4wd wont engage in 4wd

The solder joints broke on the push button's PC board at the connector. Pop out the button assembly , disconnect from wire harness and re-solder the connector pins to the PC board. Very easy to fix!

Does anyone know how to reset the service reminder on a 2015 isuzu d-max 2.5 twin turbo?


I would ask the dealer to do this but here is what I show to get the light reset. This is courtesy of expert Techmecho

If the tech 2 device is indicating the code for 4wd module then it has to be replaced.Get the module and its connections checked before going to replace the module.If the module connections are getting short or loose then getting the connections repaired solves the problem.But most probably when it shows module problem,the module has to be replaced.The actual testing procedure is as follows:--- If you have an ODBII code reader, you can check if there are any codes stored in the ECU. There is also a diagnostics mode you can go into for transfer case issues:

1. Warm up the engine. Turn it off.
2. Turn the ignition switch on and off at least twice, then turn the ignition switch to off.
3. Shift into park.
4. Turn the 4WD selector to Auto.
5. Turn the ignition switch to on. Do not start engine.
6. Is the 4WD warning lamp on? Continue if no.
7. Shift into reverse.
8. Turn the 4WD selector to 2WD, Auto, 2WD.
9. Shift into drive.
10. Turn the 4WD selector to 4H, Auto, 4H.
11. Shift into neutral.
12. Turn the 4WD selector to Auto.
13. Shift into park.
14. The 4WD indicator light will come on for 2.5 seconds, then go out. It will then flash a series of times to represent a one or two digit code, with half-second delays within a number and 1 second delay between numbers. e.g. to represent the code 23, it will flash twice with 0.5 seconds between flashes, wait a second, then flash three times with 0.5 seconds between them.Get it rechecked again by disconnecting the 4wd module and reconnecting again,. --------------------Thank you.

1998 Chevy Suburban - service 4wd light comes on after running 4x4 for 2 mins


Well it could be the selector switch, but I doubt it.
Generally, the service light means something is not working that the computer controls. Solenoids and valves are a couple of possibilities.
The transfer case is shifted by solenoids commanded by the body computer based on the switch position on the dash.
You should be able to have a shop scan the body computer for trouble codes and proceed from there.
A basic code reader may not access the body computer.

My 99 Chevrolet silverado 4wd not working.ive replaced the dash switch and still nothing .when I turn the key the 4wd switch lights stay on for a split second then goes off. What else should I try?


I have run into to this problem many times on these trucks, i have seen your problem and also where the 4wd high light wont work but 4wd low and 2wd work fine and the 4 wheel drive works fine. on your truck i will bet its the transfer case selector motor.
the motor is what turns the lights on when in the selected mode which goes through the 4wheel module under the dash, this sounds like a bad selector motor and that where i would start. this motor is located on the transfer case, it bolts to the rear of it.here is a picture of it to help you locate it. good day.4_14_2012_12_37_13_pm.jpg

How do I turn off service engine light on 1988 volvo 740 gle


One way that always works is to disconnect the battery for at least ten minutes. If the cause of the check engine light turning on in the first place is not fixed, then the light will come on again pretty quickly after starting the car.
To reset your service light here are the steps.

1. Get in your car and shut the door.
2. Put your key in the ignition
3. Turn your ignition key to position 1
4. Push in your Odometer reset button and hold it in while holding it move the ignition key to position 2 while holding down the odometer reset button.
5. After couple of seconds of holding the button down and the key in position 2 your service light will start to blink once that happens let go of the reset button and start the car.

4 wheel drive lights do not light up


Alot of times it's the electric shift motor on transfer case not working. With vehicle off key on press button and see if you hear it, next see if there is power down there when 4x4 is engaged. You haven't said exactly what your working on so if that's not the problem then you need to fill in some more info.
