The 4x4 system has a controller,or computer,called the Body Control Module and there will be stored trouble codes.To work on a system that's electronically controlled,you have to get the codes from the system.Every trouble code has a diagnostic route to follow to resolve the faulty component.I have read about Explorers having faulty door open/closed sensors.These set a code in the Body Control Module,and in the process,the BCM inhibits 4x4 operation,causing a no 4 wheel drive complaint.There is also an electric motor on the transfer case that can fail electrically or mechanically,along with speed sensors and fork position sensors that can give trouble.

In my 1996 ranger xl my high idle problem was due to a bad ect sensor. After I replaced that I have had no problems with high idle. Not sure if yours is idleing high all the time like mine was but that sensor fixed the problem for me. Hope this helps!

the transfer case is sticking from non use, change the lube in the case ( Ford ATF) and drive it for awhile it should be ok then.

I had same problem on my 2002 explorer. Its either the computer module, or the electric solenoid on the transfer case. In my case it was both. The computer module I had done twice in 14 months.
