If i'm not mistaken the 97 Expadition's have automatic locking hubs and they are the most likely problem. To find out for sure you need to use a chain or strap strong enough to fasten to a tree or some other object that will not move lock in the 4wd and have some one watch the front drive shaft while you give enough gas to make the tires spin, if the front drive shaft spins and the front tires don't you have a bad hub if it does not your transfer case is not engaging which is most likely a bad servo motor. I hope this helps you with your problem.
sound like voltage regulator problems.alternator field grounded.open rectifier.loose connections.make sure your wires not loose. also have autozone or advance auto. check out alternator before replacing it.
I have a 2000 Ford Expodition, After changing the alternator for the third and final time, I jump started it several time till I could get it to a repair shop, the owner looked at several things and did a few test. then replaced the #1 fuse a 20Amp Power point fuse that was blown. it has worked fine ever since. BTW he did not charge me anything, made a new firend and customer.
