2004 Transfer case control module

So, I've drudged the Internet and have not found 1 image/install pictures of the TCCM for my year Ranger (2004). It's the one behind/next to the radio, as confirmed by a dealer phone call (I checked the passenger kick panel and it's only the fuse panel back there with the fuel cut-off...no space for anything else really). I will be replacing it, but haven't had a chance to take the radio (aftermarket) out yet. I'd assume it's cut and dry once the bezel is removed, but I'd just like to see some images to confirm. Once I get the part number off of it I'll order the new one to match.

Symptoms: 4x4 lights not working during ignition cycling test, 4x4 does not engage in any position (hi/low/neutral), actuator not tested, but no signal during an initial testing cycle would lead me to believe there is no power going to the actuator due to the module not responding.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

I also checked the kick panel fuses (10, 27 & 28) along with the engine fuse (27). All were good. Any other fuse/relay to check?

Looks like TM-101 is the Motorcraft number that the dealer is finding. I'll swing by the dealership tomorrow and take a look. $233.47....blah

Good info, I've already had to replace my control module once.

Next time it goes out, a manual t-case will be replacing it.

Yup....this is my primary vehicle right now, so no time to swap it out. I would much rather have a manual stick to shift into the drive I want, so that's the upgrade later on when this becomes my #2 again.

I hear ya there.

Until I bought my Saturn I couldn't do multi-day projects that jeopardized its driveability

Well, the module did nothing. My dash switch doesn't light up, so maybe that could be causing the issue? I might as well get a new switch, since the light doesn't work on it anymore....possible sign of electrical connection issues?

If anyone knows of any possible relays or fuses I should check that I have yet to do so, please let me know. If it's not the dash switch, I'm going to get the Dorman 600-807 actuator (part number is what is on there now). If that doesn't do it, then I have no clue.

I did a visual of the in-dash fuse #10 (10a), so maybe I just need to replace it. I don't have a fuse tester, so I may just get a random pack of fuses and replace the following:

Inside
#10 ( Custer (RUN/START), 4x4 module (RUN/START)).....I'm leaning towards this being the dick!
#27 ( Climate control blower relay/blend doors, 4x4 module)
#28 ( 4x4 module B+)

Hood
#27 (4x4 module)
