      Since you say it only works after the truck warms up I would venture to guess that there is a problem with one of several things. All of the electronics for the 4wd system are in the dash, so I would start there. My first thought is a bad or loose pin in a connector. Then I would look at the components themselves. If you need wiring diagrams I think I may have them.
