Not knowing what type of 4wd engagement sytem you have, this is a guess. Maybe vacuum operated, look for a cracked or disconnected hose.
Or do you have manual locking hubs, that have to be turned manually?

Before I pulled anything off I would start checking fuses. More than likely the fuse you'll be looking for will be under the hood. But I'd go ahead and check all of the fuses just to be sure. ( A blown fuse will either be smokey looking, or you'll be able to see a broken piece of wire in the middle of it). If that is not the problem then more than likely a relay or the control computer for the 4x4 is messed up. Generally, if there is a mechanical problem with the transfer case, or the servo motor that changes it's gears, the 4x4 indicator lights will flash. Since they are not flashing I believe your problem is in the electrical system. If it is not a fuse, I recommend having a mechanic look at it. Merry Christmas!

you must remove brakes, then remove axle nut, then remove upper control arm and finally tie rod stabilizer, remove axle from car then bearing can be accessed. this is a difficult job that requires special tools so be careful

put a ground strap from your transfer case to your transmission. also with someone listening under the car with the key on but not running put your foot on the brake, shift to neutral and turn the selecter to 4x4 low and see if you can hear the actuater respond
