Question about 1996 Dodge Ram
Transfer case works fine. 4x4 light stopped coming on and front hubs won't engage.
You have a Vacuum Leak that is not allowing the Front Hubs to engage... I do believe that 1996 Dodge has Vacuum hubs on the Differential

chances are that your one of your auto locks have when out on you you can replace them with the manual locking type if you dont mind getting out and locking the hubs in. and a plus to manual locks is that they are much much stronger

check behind the right side of the front axle and look for 2 vacuum lines to see if they are still connected. also check on driver side just infront of the transfer case and check the vacuum lines to see if they are still connected. usually the problem is the vacuum lines have become caught on something and disconnected themselves.

Sounds like you either have a vaccum leak or your 4 wheel drive actuator is not working to engage the front differential.On my 98 ram there is a black and red plastic lines that are used for the vaccum lines. They are underneath and go from the transfer case to the front axle, check to see if one or both might be cracked or broke completely.If the lines are good then it could be your actuator on the front axle. A new one is about $93 at advance auto parts and not very hard to replace
