I would suspect a faulty switch, or vacuum line. On some vehicles, this can be caused by a bad electrical ground, or broken wire leading to the transfer case. there are some tricks too to unlock it before you start replacing parts, put it on drive then hit the brakes then take the reverse and see if it unlocks. if doesnt work then have the switch, vacuum line, electrical grounds be checked.
