Saw you hav'nt got a reply yet. Me eathier. Maybe we can help each other. I have a 1997 expidition 5.4 4wd thats acts like its stuck in 4wd, when put on blocks my 2wd light goes off when put dial there and wheels disengage, but torque in tranny dosnt. WHen I put in A4WD front wheels kick in. But in 4 high and 4 low light still says A4WD. From what ive read on these forums your shift moter could be your problem. First check fuse under hood, mines #17-30amp. Also read you can check the voltage between the orange wire and ground and the yellow wire to ground, why somebody operates the switch. Unplug the conector to the shift moter to acess these wirers, its on the drivers side of transfer case, before drive shaft. Looks like a little starter with a round cast thing on it, if have power to moter then moters bad, also read have to do this while up on blocks, so be careful. Best deal I found on moter is at www. Carparts. Com/ford. $76.49, free shiping, but ive never dealt with them. Good luck, feel free to repost or email if you solve your problem, or if you or any body here can help me solve mine. MY 4WD is kicking out, but my transfer case isnt.I just want my 2wd back for now, can I do this some how. Is the shift moter my problem or something els. ( Rjohnson2259@esagelink. Com )

Just wanted to let you know to unhook battery if replacing moter. Also if you dont have power to moter, could be a number of things from relays, fuses. Maybe actuator.
