It is possible that the vacuum actuator that engages the 4X4 is faulty. It will have to be tested with vacuum pressure tester.
This is usually the case when 4X4 doesn't engage.
Other case is the module inside tranny is defective and may need rebuild

4wd wont engage on my 86 bronco II. Push button 4wd isn't working and I can't find the fuse (inline) to check if it's blown.

Engage the 4wd and go underneath and tap the 4x4 motor to engage it, it is probably just stuck. More than likely its not a fuse.

97 chevy k1500 will not engage 4wd

Same thing happened in my 97 K1500 pickup. Turned out to be the 4wd actuator on the front axle was bad. Went to the junkyard and picked one up for $50. Just make sure you bring the old one with you so they can match it up exactly.(There's 3 or 4 styles out there for this year grouping of trucks.) Make sure the plugs match exactly.

97 S-10, manual trans, 4WD, V6. wehn I engage

The gears are binding, and the vehicle is new enough the the computer can say hell no, and pop it back out. That or the mechanical portion won't hold it in place because the gears are binding. If you need 4WD, take it in to get repaired, The techs will try it out, and test it to make sure what is wrong, trust me when they are stumped, thy get 3 or 4 other techs thinking about it. They can fix it for you. A friend of mine had this issue, except in a 98 silvarado, and when he engaged his, it did the same thing. I never asked how they fixed it, but I know he went to a dealership to do it.
