Another T-case motor question

Sorry for sasking this guys... Ok I have a 93 ranger and when I push the 4x4 button to engage the T-case to 4 wheel I dont get anything. No lights, but It sounds like I can hear a little difference in the motor or even can here a little winding if I listen hard enough. Is this my imagination? What do you guys think it may be.

I thought I read somewhere that the light would come on regardless.

That should answer ALL your questions about the shift motor.

Are you sure the 4 wheel drive isn't engaging? It could be that the light just burned out in the dash.

Along with burn lights it could also be bad hubs.

Well if they are new then they should be fine. See if you can lift the whole truck on a lift or on jackstands to see what is going on. Throw it in 4wd but don't lock the hubs and see if the front driveshaft spins. Put it in low and see if it actually going into low. You could have a bad 4wd computer and/or switch.
