2005 Trail Blazer Ext LT transfer case
My 2005 Trail Blazer Ext LT does not move in any gear. Sometimes if you put it in drive and just let sit at idle it will eventually move a little bit but not much and has no power whatsoever. Which leans me towards the transmission but the 4x4 has not worked for sometime now and the 4x4 service light came on probably a week before this all happen. I was going to take it over the weekend but it never made it. So after checking the trannsmission fluid, and removing the pan. I am now leaning towards the Transfer case as the fluid in the transmission was perfect and nothing in the pan that makes me think there is an issue.
My question is can the transfer case be shifted manually by removing the Encoder motor and using channel locks to shift it. I have seen comments both ways saying it can and can't be done. On mine when you try to manually shift it. It springs back and does not stay where you shifted it to.
Any comments or suggestions would be great.
