Before I pulled anything off I would start checking fuses. More than likely the fuse you'll be looking for will be under the hood. But I'd go ahead and check all of the fuses just to be sure. ( A blown fuse will either be smokey looking, or you'll be able to see a broken piece of wire in the middle of it). If that is not the problem then more than likely a relay or the control computer for the 4x4 is messed up. Generally, if there is a mechanical problem with the transfer case, or the servo motor that changes it's gears, the 4x4 indicator lights will flash. Since they are not flashing I believe your problem is in the electrical system. If it is not a fuse, I recommend having a mechanic look at it. Merry Christmas!

Well, the best way is to place the vehicle on a hoist and raise all 4 wheels off the ground and put it in 4WD and see if all the wheels start turning.
Another way is to make a really sharp (slow) turn while the unit is in 4 wheel high or 4 wheel low on dry pavement. You should be able to feel the driveline wrap-up caused by the front wheels trying to grab during the hard turn.
4 Low should be easily distinguishable from 4 High as well as 2 Whl when you accelerate and it feels like the transmision is stuck in low gear and the engine starts screaming for mercy at high RPM and you are only doing 30 MPH.
