4 low will not engage. 4 high will engage, when shifted to N and I press the 4L switch, it blinks for about 10 sec. and shifts to 4H. while in N and 4L is blinking if i press the gas pedal it acts like it wants to shift but does not ???? auto 4WD, 2WD, and 4WD work fine
I cannot understand why u would ever need 4L but anyway try this: after not working once move your vehicle about 6 inches backwards then try again. if no results move veh fwd about 6 inches and try again. if this doesnt word, im lost. good luck. ps: dont engage emerg brake

Turn the electronic transfer
case from "2WD" to "4WD Lock" to engage the high range 4WD, if the dodge
truck is equipped with an electronic transfer case; otherwise, shift
the transfer case lever from "2H" to "4H." The electronic transfer case
is located on the instrument panel and is marked with "2WD," "4WD Lock"
and 4WD Low." The lever-equipped transfer case is located to the right
of your leg and is marked with "2H," "4H" and "4L."
Shift the transmission into
"Neutral" while the vehicle is either stopped or rolling at 2 to 3 mph
to begin engaging in the low range 4WD. Turn the electronic transfer
case to "4WD Low," if the Dodge truck is equipped with an electronic
transfer case; otherwise, shift the transfer case lever from "2H" or
"4H" to "4L."
Tips & Warnings
Indicator lights will come on and alert you that your vehicle is in either the high or low range of 4WD.
Do not engage in the low range of 4WD drive if the transmission is in gear; you must shift to "Neutral" first.
trucks allow you to shift from 2-wheel drive to the high range of 4WD
at up to 55 mph--consult your truck's manual to ensure that this is
possible. Do not exceed 55 mph while engaged in the high range of 4WD.
Do not exceed 25 mph while engaged in the low range of 4WD.
Do not engage in 4WD unless you are on slipper or rocky roads.
If you have it in 4 LOW, you would never need overdrive. Overdrive is a road high gear that you would use only in 4 HIGH (or 4H) on your shifter. 4L (or 4 Low) would only be used in a very slow speed hill climb. You would NEVER use 4 Low on the road.
I have a 93 full size blazer and might be able to help. First you need to ensure that your are actually not engaging the hubs. To do this, shift into 4H or 4L and try to turn very sharply. If it is difficult to move forward with the wheel turned all the way, you are probably in 4WD and the indicator light may be out.
If the truck drives as it does in 2H, your front diff is not engaging. If this is the case, there is a thermostatically engaged actuator that may have failed. These fail occasionally and can be purchased at most auto part stores or at the dealership. Before you buy a new one, use a voltmemter to ensure that voltage is present at the actuator when you engage 4H or 4L.
I know several companies make a manual pull cable style activator that can replace the thermostatically engaged unit.
