this may assist you engage in 4x4 and reverse for a few meters, normally this does the trick on the transfer case if not then either the electrics/switch to the transfer case is not not functioning or the transfer case itself.
Does the vehicle make any kind of noise when you try to shift it into 4x4? Do the dash lights on the push button shifter light up?
It is very common for the transfer case shift motor to go bad on these. They are located on the side of the transfer case by 3 or 4 10mm bolts. Another possibility would be the plunger on the front differential is bad. This is located on your front carrier assembly. It screws right into the side of the housing.
If you aren't sure I would take it to a good shop and mention these 2 things and they will take care of you.
Check the fuse to the 4x4, if the fuse is good then check the 4x4
electric motor actuator on the transfer case. You should hear it work
from 2wd, 4hi to 4low and back to 2wd with the push of the switch. if
you don't hear it working then check the wire harness at the actuator
motor, look for any damages like corrosion or cracked wire connector
clips. If the 4x4 actuator is working on the transfer case, then the
front hub 4x4 actuator may have gone bad and that's located on the
front differential. It's common for the clip there to corrode and break
and is an easy fix with a new collar pin, at worst it's the diaphragm
on the vacuum actuator that is located under the battery tray. There is
a vacuum switch on the top of the transfer case, driver side but when
that fails, your front hub stay's locked in the on position. Good luck
and keep me posted and hope it's a simple fuse that has gone bad. You
can pick up all these parts at Auto Zone or Parts Source and they will
have the step by step instructions for you to get the job done with
no you should not have to drop it. there should be a slip yoke with the shaft leading from the transmission to the transfer case. when you remove that and support the transfer case there will be plenty of room to move the transmssion back away from the engine to remove it
yea its not shifting again like before ? sounds like your transfer case solonoid has possably gone bad again .. these are a sometimes dont work item .. It is what shifts the transfer case into gear and it might be a little worn or weathered and not letting the switch kick it in gear all the way from the N position. thanks Jerry holler if you need more.
