Icon4 4x4 help

I posted in another thread but need help ASAP, I have a 1994 ford ranger splash super cab with a 4.0 and manual hubs, I was driving earlier and slid so I got out and locked my hubs upon entering the truck I hit the 4x4 button and nothing happened I tested the control module and all fuses and relays nothing was blown and module worked fine, a new switch is 312.00$ so id like to save a couple hundred if anyone knows of a simple problem to fix this or a bypass method or otherwise please let me know neither the dash indicator or the light beside the button is lighting up!!!

bad motor on the transfer switch? I replaced mine a few winters ago with an Advance Auto rebuild. They have a nylon washer in there that acts as a bump-stop...eventually it gets crushed and allows the motor to go too far, which then confuses the control module. When mine went, it'd flash the 4x4 light something like 6 times.
