This is a long/hard one to answer as a few things can cause this. First, check the vacuum lines running from the engine down to the front axles for cracks, and make sure you have vacuum to the axle hub. Second, remove and inspect the front wheel bearings, they should be set to proper preload and there should be no signs of water in the hub. And last if there is water in the hub, that most likely means there is rust on the front axle, and the pitting caused by the rust will not allow vacuum to build up and ingage the four wheel drive. the later requires a new front hub kit $$$.

not sure on this model but i think the alternator is sensed and activated by the ECU ,look on the back and see how many wires you have ,now the big thick heavy cable should have a permanant 12v supply ,one of the other two wires is the warning light control and the other one is the senseing cable for the ECU ,now this one you connect to the ignition switch supply so its activated when you turn ignition on .Yes i know what the so called experts say but old cars were self exciting alternators and the reason its done by the ECU is save fuel by turning the alternator off when current consumption is low with daytime running.Not sure what the colours are for the two wires but look on the back of the nalternator and the warning light could be marked with WL .or find out in the handbook or disconnect them one at a time to locate the warning light .
