4x4 not working

I just installed a new shift motor on my 98 ford ranger XLT but the truck will not go into 4 wheel drive. When I turn the key on the 4 wheel high and low indicator lights flash 6 times, I am guessing this is a code but no one seem to know. All vac hoses look good and are connected but still not working. Any help would really be appreciated

Does it flash 6 times every 2 minutes or just when you start the truck?
If it does it every 2 minutes it has something to do with your speed sensor being faulty.
