Smack it with a hammer.
But make sure you know what your smacking. The shift motor is on the back of the trasnfer case, so you'll be under the cab somewhat. Just tap on it a few times and if that doesn't work, then go buy a new one. If i remember correctly they aren't all that expensive and you can get them from the parts store.
