4x4 Wont Come On

I Recently Had A Remote Starter Installed About A Month Ago. I Haven't Used The Four Wheel Drive For About A Year And Went To Put It On The Other Day And Nothing Happened. Do You Think This Is Electrical And Related To The Remote Starter Install? I Did Check The Fuses.

Go to the 2002-2005 stock Explorer forum and look for a thread started by marcum03. Your 4X4 control module is bad. Lots of good info in that thread.

Also check out the the forum about the actuator motor Most is very good advise, the part about checking the LED did not work in my situation. It is stated about pushing in the button that if you get a solid light the controller is bad. I tried this and changed the controller, it ended up being the actuator that is bolted to the transfer case. Also before rebuilding the part I was able to find a brand new one thru a KOI parts dealer for $91.00.
I my journery of parts digging I was able to come up with three used controllers that all are good. If any one is interested in purchasing any of these I can let them go for really cheap.
