My temp. needle gauge would stay at 90. When i ran the diagnostic i got a code p1296 so i assumed it was the coolant sensor because i have no symptom that i have a bad thermostat. I have hot heat,car does not overheat, mileage same. I changed the sensor 24 hr ago after my needle gauge started working right, but today i notice the check engine light still does this mean its the thermostat ? If not what else could it be ?

1999 Chevy Silverado 1500...I replaced the dash buttons and front axle actuator. Problem is that when button in 2WD the front drive shaft turns but not axles or tires. When button in 4WD the front shaft will not turn. When I manually turn front tires the axle turns also but not shaft. ( seems like things are switched around ) . I tried to get it to flip flop again but not much luck.
Just today, a low growl(sounds like a grumpy cat noise) sound started emitting from my engine bay. The sound is present at idle and also while driving. The sound speeds up and slows down with engine RPM (but the volume level does not go up). I think it may be one of the serpentine components but hard to tell which one. No codes, no diagnostic lights present.
