I dont think my 4 wheeldrive is working

One sure way to find out is to find a dirt or gravel drive or road. Stop, engage the 4wd, and accelerate hard enough to spin the tires. If only the back tires spin then 4wd is not engaging, and we will have to figure out what the problem is. Let me know the outcome of the test.

Unable to engage 4wd 1993 pajero

Do the 4 wheeldrive lights in the middle of the instrument cluster flash when you've selected 4 Wheel Drive?. Have you tried move forward with the transferbox lever to 4 Wheel Low on a NON-Asphalt/Tarmac surface[ie, dirt road/trail. Sometimes on a Gen 2 Pajero/Montero that hasn't had the 4 Wheel selection used in awhile, do this trick, before moving the lever back up to 4 Wheel High[with no center diff lock] seems to free up a sticking t-box. Also, make sure all your vacuum hoses for the front axle connection system are attached to their metal pipes or solenoids, esp. the main connection at the engine[your source of vacuum for the system.]
