How do I turn off 4x4 on a 2002 ford explorer?

You don't, it's all wheel drive, which means it puts power to the wheel or wheels where (it thinks) you need it, so it sometimes is acting like a regular 2WD vehicle, and seamless transitions to 4WD when you need it (like stabbing the gas turning right from a stop in the rain or snow). You can click 4WD HIGH or LOW and force it to power at least one wheel on each axle.

Just got H 2 2005 4 buttons 4 the 4 wheel drive

Use 2 wheels, the other 4wd low ,for climbing at slow speeds: 4wd high, for driving on low traction roads,like mud or snow,at medium speeds: 4wd auto full time all wheel drive, for highway speeds on slippery surfaces, like rain or light snow.

How do I use the shift on th fly 4wd system. I wanted to know basicalll what was the procedure. Do I put the tramission in a certain gear before I shitft the 4wd system or what?

If the system is a true shift on the fly you will be able to shift in 4WD while driving in forward gear, shifting in to 4WD high only. To shift in to 4WD low you should stop the truck and place it in to park or neutral. Also as you shift in to 4wd (or out of) try to do in a neutral state with the drive train, meaning not when you are accelerating or under heavy load. Make the shift when you are more or less cruising. PLease remember true 4WD should not be run on clear concrete or asphalt as the system must be allowed to slip. If you traveling on a snow covered road or such be certain to shift back to 2WD when on clear roads to avoid drive train damage.
I hope this may have helped,
