I have a 2002 2500 that had the same thing happen, there is a common problem with this 2nd gen diesel . The lift / transfer pump that supplies fuel to the injection pump fails. When this happens the injection pump can still draw fuel past it but has no lubrication on start up and will cause your injection pump to fail.This is very costly in fact after replacing both pumps in my own the bill was pushing $3500.00. the good news is the transfer pump is relatively cheep $300 to $400. I live in northern Canada so these prices are worst case scenario. there is a test port to check your transfer pump you will need a 0-30 psi gauge. and I recommend installing a permanent one so you can monitor this pump, it is very costly not to.

good luck!

Most likely the motor on the transfer case. You have several modules/computers that work the transfer case shifting. Since it is trying to shift, it narrows it down to 2 modules. The transfer case module and the motor module(the motor has a module built in). I do diagnostics, I have the tools to do it. I eliminate other possibilities. Wires and such. I place more motors, than all the others combined. It is the most abused electrical part of a 4x4 vehicle. And it is on the bottom of the vehicle.

If no CEL you must take this to a dealer for trouble shooting. Double check battery connections and all fluids. May just be a safety issue preventing self destruction. Good luck..
