not 100% sure, but i think that you have to have the ebrake engaged and the trans in neutral, no shift on the fly because youre not supposed to go over like 5mph

You have to be stopped or going slower that 5mph(might as well stop) and if an auto you have to have it in neutral with your foot on the brake and if its an manual then clutch down and your foot on the brake. Its all in the instruction manual.

pull your t-case shift motor off and see if it is turning to the 4 low position.....if it isn't, then that is your problem...
