Axle is locked in 4HI

No noises. Running fine. Oil pressure has been low. Engine light wasn't on. Just went dead going down road and will turn over but wont start.

It knocks for about 10 minutes, then stops. During this time I notice the oil pressure gauge just below 40 at start. When the knock finally stops, the oil pressure gauge is just passed 40. I tried flushing the motor, but to no success. It always sounds like the driver side front lifter that starters knocking, 10 minutes after initial start and stops about 10 minutes after that. Any Ideas? Thought about changing oil pump, but not sure If that is necessary nor could I handle the job.

I switched my motor with an 07 motor which I was told would be a perfect match everything is hooked up but when I crank it the truck fires up and imidetly cuts off if anyone knows maybe what's wrong or if there's a difference in the motor anything helps and it would be greatly appreciated

On a 06 Silverado 1500 Z71, 5.3T motor; Service 4WD lit up. My push button 4wd selector only flashes when put in Auto 4WD,4H or 4L. 2H works good. Fuses all good, wiring seems intact. Cleaned ground wires under driver side frame. YouTube video showed problem with ohm meter parameters. Mine were all off, replaced the switch, cleared the code (C0379 Front axle circuit), no change. Transfer case engages, just nothing to the front end. What's next, actuator?

But doe's not rattle when someone riding in the sea

A/C will blow cold for a while. Then cold goes away. Does not blow hot air. Just draws warm air in from outside.

Interior and exterior lighting pulsate. No rhyme or reason. Comes and goes. Happens at all speeds. Even while idling.

My truck has been giving the intermittent message of "service 4 wheel drive". Not only that but there things happen and some at the same times. The fuel gauge goes crazy or sits on empty. The ABS light comes on; brake light; air bag indicator; gauge lights go on and off; and / or a beeping sound that's stays on a while. These happen while driving and may last up to five minutes. Each time the service 4 wheel drive message usually appears as well. Seems like a short somewhere. Do you have an answer?

The bed brake lights are not working, but all other lights including the center mount brake light are working fine. I checked every fuse in both boxes and all four bulbs and they all appear fine. Since the center mount brake light works when the pedal is pressed it appears that the brake switch is not the issue. Does anyone have any ideas for what else could cause this? Thanks for your help.
