I'd have a look in the Transfer case/transmission/etc forum, there is a diagnosis thread in there that was helpful to me when I had 4wd issues. The cluch in my transfer case was the culprit, so I just swapped it (the whole transfer case) out for a new one.

The encoder motor could be sticking. Sometimes a good wrap on it with a mallet will engage it.
