01 Ranger 4WD Problem

When I start my truck the 4WD light comes on and then off as usual, but when I try to engage it the light will not come on. I have taken the motor on the t-case off and it moves, and I can turn the t-case, any ideas on what could be wrong?

I am not that familiar with the electric shift T-case system but my manual had a switch in the T-case go bad and I was having problems with the 4WD light. I replaced it and the problem was solved. You could check out the connector to that switch also, if you have one.

While I was troubleshooting I jacked up my truck just to see if 4wd was working and I had a bad sensor somewhere, and it wasn't.
