I expierenced the same type of problem recently, I found through a process of elimination that the problem was in the electric shift motor assy. there is a bumper stop on the electrical switch portion of the shift motor, it was completely deterioated and gone. i don't know what type of material is was made of because all i found were shavings. I made a new bumper assy. out of a high quality piece of neopreme and slid it on, (tight fitting, with glue), and note it must be the correct size to operate the internal switching. I have had no trouble since and it seems to operate quieter and smoother than previously. I can't say this is your problem, but I do believe all of these bumpers are going to fail due to the material used in this application.

Hi,
When you switch it from 2H to 4H you can push the switch at any speed but if you switch to 4L the car must be stop and the shifter is in neutral position.
Anyway here is my suggestion.... I would check the switch it self 1st for proper contact, also check the owners manual if there is a fuse for 4X4.
The worse scenario is the 4X4 computer is dead and if you have problem with transfer case you would notice a whining noise.

There is a Shift motor that shifts it in 4wheel drive and also a shift mudule I believe on this year. Either one of these can be bad.

When I push the 4x4 push button the light comes on but will not engage the transfer.


Transfer case motor is probably sticking, try hitting the 4x4 low first, or if you can tap on it and try pressing 4x4 button should work.

That would be the actulator on the transfer case. More than likely it needs replaced. Check for good connection at the plug on the tranfer case.
