Hi my name is tommy.The problem you are having may not be a horrible one. Some models of the explorer are all-wheel-drive not 4-wheel drive.If you do not have a switch in plain sight that says 2hi 4lo 4hi on it,then chances are your suv is all wheel drive.These models of explorer are always engaged in 4-wheel drive and do not have a 2 wheel drive option.(simular to a subaru or a mitsubishi lancer evo)Hope this helps.Have a good day.

I assume they are manual locking hubs? Once you engage the hubs and select 4WD you must reverse a few meters and you will hear them click into place, If they don't lock in your hubs may need servicing, They are quite easy to dismantle and re-grease which you can do yourself if you are handy with mechanical buts and pieces.
you need to contact the manufacturer of the vehicle and tell them the vin number and they can give you the code ( you could pay a fee for this info ) this solution only works if the stereo is an original fitment to this vehicle.
If its hard to steer - you probably are in 4x4, especially if turning hard over. (this should be done only if necessary since it putsa a lot of strain on the front 4x4 components. If you want to be sure you are in 4x4 clear an area and put a block in front of one or both of your front tires and try to drive over while not in 4x4. Then try in 4x4. If you can in 4x4 and not in 2wd you know your 4x4 is working. Be ready in both cases to brake in case you do go over the obsticle(s).
start the vehicle, shift transmission to nuetral. then move the 4x4 shifter to the 2wd position. then shift the transmission into reverse and back up a few feet straight, then drive forwards. it should be out of 4x4.
