Sounds like it might be an encoder moter, but the best thing you can do is take it to a good transmission shop so they can hook up their reader and find out for sure

My 4WD will not Disengage


i would check the cervo motor on the transfer case and listen for it to shift it out that might be bad or else it might be the electronic 4wd computer under the dash on the drivers side that might be bad or the solenoid on the transfer case might be shot. your best bet is to get a continuity tester and start at the actuator on the front end and see where the power is not coming through. to unlock it from 4wd unhook the actuator on the front diff. and see if it unlocks by pushing the button
