I ran into this problem, and discovered that i had a faulty front shaft speed sensor. The grinding I had was that the transfer case clutch packs were trying to lock up and engage the front wheel drive. Replacesment of the sensor has not fully rectified the situation though, as it still does it intermittently. It seems to do it at low speed turns and on acceleration. Not sure if this is your problem or not, but it could be. A scan of the computer can tell you if it is the issue though.

DIsconnext and reconnect the linkage at the transmission. You may want top replace the linkage cable all together. Make sure you set the parking break and block the tires

explorers have an issue with the transfer case if this is a awd version it has a viscus fluid coupling that can slip and allow the vehicle to
roll away slowly find a steep hill and put it in park no e-brake and see if it slips down the hill on the automatic 4-wheel drive system the systen can also slip but it works different their is a mechanical connection to the transmission then it would most likely be the parking prowl
