4 WHEEL DRIVE WILL NOT ENGAGE

I just bought a 1987 Bronco, and I am pretty sure that the 4 wheel drive is not engaging. It has the automatic hubs and it is the push button 4 wheel drive system. When I push the 4x4 button nothing happens. The light next to the button does not turn on and neither does the indicator light in the dash. The same with the low range button. I am guessing that it is possibly a fuse out. Any suggestions on how to get the 4x4 to engage.

Actually, if you are not getting it in 4 lo, the actuator on the transfer case sounds like it is the problem. WHat you need to do is check to see if it is getting power to the actuator when the 4wd buttons are pushed. If it is, remove the actuator and have it checked.

LEt me know what you find.
