SOURCE: 99 Ford Ranger xlt 4x4
I had the same problem w/ my 99. If you have auto hubs, they work off a vacuum pump which is located under your air filter box..check to make sure it is working..is that is working it's on to the hubs..the locking hubs are the black caps in the center of each from wheel..they snap on and off..hard to take off without breaking a few tabs..the seal one or both may not be holding the vacuum created by the motor under the airfilter box. if one of the hubs has a vacuum leak neither side will work, it's all or nothing..aside from the electric parts on the dash and side of transmition that's about everything there is to know about 1999 ranger four wheel system.

Operationally vacuum holds the IWE ( Integrated Wheel Ends ) out, and once vac is removed the spring engages the IWE.
Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem.
- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
Shut of the truck ( still jacked up, and supported ) remove the vac lines from the IWE. The spring should push the gears in, without the vac line on.
Check the vent line ( tube that is routed into the engine compartment with nothing attached to it ), for blockages.
If the vent line is clear, and with the vac lines off the IWE should be engaged ( both front wheels locked ).
If they lock, the problem is with the IWE solenoid not shutting off vacuum to the IWEs. There is a TSB on the 2004-2006 IWE solenoids, a newer revision has been made, and used from 2007 and newer MYs.
Here is a block diagram of the IWE system

Usally these warning lights come on for a reason.
I would have someone plug a OBD II reader in and retrieve the code.
The code should be able to tell you specific information on why the light is on.
Until you find out I would not us the 4 wheel drive function.
