      ive got a 96 explorer, 4.0 4x4, and i was testing out the 4wd, it worked, then when i put it back in 2wd it never switched over. once my 4wd light came on i pulled over and noticed that it was still in 4low when i had it in 2. any suggestions to get it out of 4?

      Try backing up in reverse..I have heard with the 1st gens that is how you can disengage it. Not sure about 2nd gen though..

      did you put the transmission in Neutral when switching out of 4 lo ??

      to engage 4lo the Explorer must be stopped and the transmission in neutral,
      to disengage 4lo the Explorer must be stopped and the transmission must also be in neutral,,
