The brakelight activation switch on top of brake peddle had come loose,not allowing lights to come on and affecting circuit to 4wd selection switch. I fixed the brake peddle switch and it solved the problem.

Its not the oil relief valve,since it only works when pressure is to high,and even then you dont lose all pressure.. look into the camshaft synchronizer having a broken drive gear at the bottom.they tend to break..working on one now that has this problem,so I know. luck to ya!

allow the system to cool down
take radiator cap loose to release pressure
once pressure is released tighten cap
loosen clamps on the heater hoses in the engine compartment on the pass. side of firewall.
plug or cap off the heater core tubes to prevent spillage when you pull it into the truck
place a trash bag on floorboard in case spillage occurs
remove the five screws holding the heatre core access cover, three on top and two on bottom
carefully pull heater core back and down and remove it from the dash
install is reverse
Hope this helps

There is obviously an issue with the transfer case. I doubt anything mechanical is wrong. Take it to your nearest autozone they can scan the code and give you a general idea of what to look for. 99.9% of the time they can help point you in the right direction. I had a smiliar problem with my exploder but mine was simply a shorted wire in the 4x4 high low selector switch assembly.
