FOUR WHEEL DRIVE NOT ENGAGING

1997 Mazda b4000 • 6 cylinder 4WD Manual • 128,000 miles

When engaging the electronic 4 wheel drive using the electronic on dash switch, the 4X4 light on the dash flashes 5 or 6 times and then goes off and the transfer case does not engage. This truck has a manual trans. Could it be the Actuator motor?
Thanks. John

Check if the transfer case is getting power when this happens. If it is, the actuator may be bad. Remove and check. Also, check the wiring to the actuator.
