Hello... My manual says that if your 4x4 doesn't engage could be because of a bent or broken rod, Broken chain in transfer case or a misaligned or broken transfer lever. not sure if this will help... also if you haven't already check your hubs. Are they locking in? Mine had the same problem it turned out to be the spring in the auto hub was broken.

May need to replace the switch itself. Most new vehcile are all electronically engaged. Replace the switch. Cheap fix compared to going into the transfer case first.

My 4 wheel drive won't engage


Sportages uses a vacuum system to lock front hubs - turn the wheels all the way to one side, then look from behind the wheel on the side you are turning 'from" There should be a rubber hose from the vacuum fitting near the wheel opening from the engine compartment to the wheel itself. If these are damages or disconnected, the front axles will engage into 4wd but the hubs will not lock and the front wheels will not be driven by the axles.

Four wheel drive wont engage


I got ripped off by a dealer with a similar problem that came back two weeks later. $2.99 of vacuum hose later I fixed it myself. Check all the vacuum lines for rotted hoses before you fork out 3K and they are easy to do
