4 wheel drive stuck

I recently bought a 96 4x4 ranger with 107 k miles. I live in northern Michigan and need 4 wheel drive, After purchasing it I checked the brakes. I removed the front tires and discovered something broke in the axle. I took it to the ford dealer and they told me it was a part for the engaugement of the 4 wheel drive. They also told me that ford was having problems with the automatic 4 wheel drive engaugement system and that I woudl be better off buying an after market manual kit for it and install it. I did and it worked for awhile. I had to use the 4 wheel drive recently and now I cant get it to come out of 4 wheel drive low. I disinguaged the hubs and turned the switch to 2 wd and it still shows 4 wd low. When I drive it I cant go over 45 miles per hour. Any seggestions on what to do would be great. Thanks Dennis

It'll still be in low gear in the transfer case which is also transmitting power to the *** end.
