Had the very same problem . It is the actuator pod under the battery tray. You have to remove the battery and battery tray and it is located under it. 3 screwsand one vaccum line. Part is about 50$ at the parts house

Place vehicle in 4wd (high or low). This will hold the front drive shaft still for the rest of the test. Jack up the front end of the vehicle. Remove the actuator. Have a buddy spin the right front wheel while you use a long punch or screwdriver to try to manually engage the diff. The left front wheel should spin in the other direction if the diff is good. Also before you check the diff you need to grab the front driveshaft and make sure it is locked, If it spins freely when the truck is in park and in 4wd with the front end raised then problem is in transfer case. If you can't make the diff engage manually with punch then the problem is in the diff. If front diff engages manually then the problem is the actuator. Hope this helps..

If you know that the actuator on the front of the truck is good check the wiring for any breaks. If it is anything like my truck the wires on the front actuator should run to a switch on the top of the t-case. If you cant find a break in the wires running to the t-case your problem is most likely the switch.
