    Hello. I have a 97 Ranger super cab XLT that will not go into four wheel drive. I have already converted the auto hubs to Warn manuals, they have always worked fine. The problem is that when I turn the switch on the dash the four wheel drive indicator lights on the instrument panel do not come on. However, when I start the truck, the lights do come on briefly as they are supposed to. AND the switch itself does light up when the headlights are on, but it just doesn't seem to work to turn the 4x4 on. Is there a relay or something I should check before replacing the switch? What fuse number? Is there a way to test the switch to see if that is the problem?

    sounds like the shift motor took a dive, and isn't shifting the t-case into 4wd anymore.

    although I'm not sure of any ways to test it since I've never dealt with one :dunno:

    might just try doing a search for shift motor
