Ok first I need to know if you are up to doing some tests and if you have a test light and a digital multi meter. Get back to me and we do a couple of tests to try to figure out what it wrong.

Ok that fuse is the T-case fuse so we need to do some testing on the transfer case control module located on the steering column bracket. The wires for that fuse are all orange and it branches off to three orange wires. These are all battery in to the module. So you may have a bad module. However I need to know if any light come on when you push the 4x4 I know the fuse blows but do any lights come on or no lights? The tests are different for each. This could also be the transfer case shift motor on the back of the t-case. Get back to me with what you can and we will go to the next step.

The light on the 4x4 switch does not work. No light. Also the front drive shaft does not turn manually when truck is in park. Does this matter?

OK lets do a test to see what we need to do here. First I will need you to get to and unplug the 4x4 control module I have include a pic of where it is. Now I will need you to make a jumper wire so you connect each circuit to gound. So the pink and white wire ground it does this make the 4x4 low light light up? Now take the light green and black wire do the same and the pink wire and the tan and black. Did all the lights come one one at a time? If yes then the module is no good and need to be replaced. Let me know what you find.
