i did an auto to manual transmission swap in my 93 xlt. the long transmission wiring harness was changed and the computer itself was changed, but i did nothing with the transfer case but bolt it up. 4 wheel drive engauges, but when i press the 4 wheel low button, nothing happens, not even a light. what could be the problem?

I know this is an ancient thread - but wanted to add the answer here for anybody searching, as I was an hour ago.

You must ground the Red/White wire to the frame or fender coming from the trans harness. This will trick the Neutral Safety Switch into thinking you are in neutral all the time, a necessary condition in order to transfer into 4 wheel low.
