Sorry for the bad luck. I don't know much about the automatics but hopefully someone can help out.
The 4x4 system is somewhat notorious for stuff like that. I don't know why anything would be disconnected, but there is an electric motor on the back of the transfer case, may want to crawl under there and have a look if anything is unplugged anywhere.
Search for 4x4 and you should find lots of threads about diagnosing/fixing 4x4 issues.

ya usally if the o/d light is blinking, time for a good tranny overhaul. might wanna look at the wires n everthing on the tcase, also i wanna say its the shift motor on the tranny that goes out to.. i think thats what its called.. easiest way to check if ur 4x4 is working... be on pavment.. put it in 4hi drive slowly n try to turn.. if its hard to turn.. then its workin.. if not.. then obviously its not working
