SOURCE: 4WD not engaging
Most the newer trucks have a vacuum system and some time you need a smoke machine to find the leaks. Try checking by each front wheel you will find a vacumm hose that goes to the wheel hub it is mounted on a bracket at the frame with a small plastic splice check that for cracks if it is cracked or there are any leaks it will not work let me know what ya find.

your problem sounds like either the transfer case control module located where you hear the clicking sound, or the actuator on the transfer case itself.
try unplugging the transfer case control module and then plug it back in, try engaging 4wd again (make sure your in neutral, coasting at 1-2 mph might help as well) if it still doesn't work check the actuator itself to see if the actuator is trying to engage. if the actuator is trying to engage but doesn't, take the actuator out and check it for wear or damage. if the actuator seems fine and it responds to the buttons when pressed i'd go after the transfer case control module as the culprit. ran into that a few times on those s-10's. 3 out of 4 that i've seen were fixed with a new tccm. 1 of the 4 needed an actuator, check your local junk yard for a working tccm or actuator.
hope this helps!

SOURCE: 4wd hi and lo buttons blink
This sounds like the electronic shift controller for the dif. I would get that looked at. Not sure the cost but i am sure they are not that cheap. If the lights are blinking and its not engaging that would be the first place i look.
