Red Exp 02 Explorer 4x4 low wont engaged?

It's snowing today i was gonna give the 4x4 low a try but whenever i press the button driving or at a stop the button just flashes for a few seconds the turns off it wont engage???? so i've been just using 4x4 high in 3 gear works fine but im wondering why the 4x4 low isn't working......
