Welcome to this forum! I've renamed, and moved your thread to the Ranger section. Check the shift motor.

I am assuming that you have tried stoped in nuturel with you foot on the brake. Because it wont shift out without all three.

As the previous post.... yes, you gotta have all three.. also I have noticed sometimes if you are stuck on a hill it will not switch out. Try reversing a bit, forward, nuetral, and try it again. Switch through 4 low, then to 4 high, then 2wd if it comes out. Sometimes going from 4low to 2wd won't kick it out right. I have had mine stick on occasion but it usually pops out with variation of the above methods. Good luck!
