a little tip a friend gave me in unlocking the 4wd drive on ramps or hill and then put in neutral let roll back a foot put in park and then let off the 4wd
when in 4wd the hubs get a little heated cause they need greased so they stick into position making it hard to come out of 4wd this which i spoke of i got stuck in the senerio where i almost drove home in 4wd from 300 miles away but i called my friend he told me bought this and so i thought it could help you
your hubs just locked up on you your bearings are going to need to be packed again this is normal for this

well make sure it is the tranfercase because if it was u wouldent have 4wd and u wouldent be able to drive it but it would be cheper to rebuild it but make sure first because some people are just out for your money good luck

Having the same exact problem but with my 1999 escalade. Thought it was the actuator bought a new one installed it transfer case would engage but front end wouldnt lock. Took it out of housing left it plugged in got a friend to go through all the 4wd for me and the plunger never moved out the actuator. Checked my wiring harness which is a four prong ann it had one hot prong like it is suppose to. Traced wires even replaced dash switch same problem. Taking it to local dealership tom to have it checked for codes. I was told it could be the transfercase actuator even though its workin that actuator is what sends power to the front to engage the actuator to lock the differential.

If the light shows that you are in 4L or 4H it is most likely the TLA or thermal electric actuator. They are heated electrically to cause a pin to eject about an inch to push a fork in the front diff to connect the right and left axles, thereby giving you 4wd. When the TLA doesn't work, your front axle won't engage and 4wd won't work. They are prone to not work in cold conditions as they are thermally actuated. Here is a site for a product that helps eliminate the TLA and the need for 12volts..
Another possibility is a blown fuse, in my 97 GMC it is #24 in the panel and it is 25 amps. If the fuse is blown the actuator won't work.
If this doen't work I have other suggestions for it not working.
