There is a motor on the back of the transfer case that controlls the 4x4 and it will "gum" up from lack of use. I would start with that.

My ATSG manual says to tighten the adjusting screw in to 10ft-lbs, then back it out exactly 2 turns. Holding the screw, tighten the lock nut to 35-45ft-lbs. The intermediate band is set the same way.

SOURCE: how do I drop the transmission and transfer case?

Get the truck up, get some cardboard on the floor, unless you have a lift. Get some jack stands under there, get your buddy to help stop this thing from smashing on the floor when you pull it out. Remove the battery cable, remove the drive shaft, get the book, remove the electrics(speedo,etc) to the tranny, remove the shift cover inside, might have to remove starter, remove bolts on bell to engine, remove cross member,(s), that should just about do it, remove clutch slave hose or cylinder, Pull, now , if the flywheel is scorched, crinkled, get it to a machine shop for turning, buy your new clutch and pressure plate, a new pinion bearing if it has one, grease it up a little,make sure you have the right clutch, see if it fits the shaft on the tranny. align the spline in the clutch plate to the pinion, by eye or with a dowel, tighten up the plate, pick up the tranny and slide it in the hole, you shouldn't have to pound, grunt or sweat, if it doesn't go in, you got something wrong, with a little tweaking, it should go right in, put the bolts back in, hook everything back up, I hope this helps.

SOURCE: 4wd wont engage on my 86 bronco II. Push button

Engage the 4wd and go underneath and tap the 4x4 motor to engage it, it is probably just stuck. More than likely its not a fuse.

The 4 wheel drive doesn't work in my 89 Ford Bronco


The sound is not coming from the glove compartment, it is coming from the panel behind the drivers seat, that's where the relays and computer are located.
The relays click and apply power to a transfer case motor.
The motor attempts to turn a shaft that engages the front drive shaft.
When the computer thinks the shaft has NOT turned it tries again.
It will try three times then quit, figuring the shaft has not turned.

Get someone to crawl under the vehicle and engage the 4WD (just turn on the ignition- do not start the engine) See if they can hear the motor attempt to turn the shaft, it will make a clicking sound.
If not the connections or the motor may be bad.

I have found the most probable cause is the relays on the control board.
If you are technically adept --
you can remove the small side panel from behind the drivers seat and remove the control board. (remove the power plugs first)
Clean the relay contacts and bend them a little to give them more 'wipe' to keep them clean longer.
Put it back in and turn on the ignition.
Then push the RESET button on the side of the board.
Try the in / out 4WD a couple of times. If it doesn't work turn off the ignition, turn it back on and push the reset button again.
