  • Q:

    My Service Four Wheel Drive message has appeared on my 03 Chevy Tahoe Z71. I have a code reader and code P1875 comes up. This part seems to be a possible fix. Is this something I can locate and install myself?

      Replacing this BWD 4-Wheel Drive Actuator -part# FWD32 on a Chevy Tahoe Z71 depends on the skill level of whoever is removing or replacing the part. Some may have a harder time than others who have experience. I would recommend purchasing a Haynes repair manual specifically for your vehicle. This should be able to assist you further into detail on how to repair or replace specific parts. For any further assistance, you may also visit your nearest Advance Auto store or call us directly at 1-877-ADVANCE (238-2623) one of our representatives there would be more than happy to assist you.

      This could possibly be the problem. However, without the presence of your vehicle we would not be able to properly diagnose it nor provide you with a 100% answer. We would suggest that you take your vehicle to a certified mechanic for further diagnosis.

      A:

      The 4-wheel drive control module is located under the dash in your 2003 Chevy Avalanche. The control module can be replaced. But it is not something you can change yourself- it needs to be programmed before the truck can be driven. I would suggest taking your vehicle to a certified mechanic for a proper diagnosis.
