Ok i am a member of fordtruckworld.com and could not get any help from there, so i thought maybe someone here could help.
My main problem right now is that i am stuck in 4x4 low. Orgnially(should have left it at this) my truck would not do anything, no 4x4 high or low lights when i turned the switch.(lights worked when truck is first turned on) I reseached it on the net and came across the idea to tap the Transfer Case Motor. I did this and my truck locked in 4x4 low and would not come out. I kept tapping on it while someone turned the dash switch and nothing, so i ordered a new(rebuilt) motor (160.00!!) I got the new motor today and while installing it(i replaced the 2 speed wires) i turned the switch and it went in 4x4 high but i put it back in 4x4 low in order to bolt the motor to the transfer case.
After i bolted it on i tried to take it out of 4 low(in netural and foot on brake) and it would not disenage. My front hubs will not lock, i am going to get on this after i get it out of 4x4 low(take it to a friends shop so i can lift front end up ect.)I have recently replaced the iwe soilnoid on the passenager side firewall.
Any ideas for be greatly appreciated. Sorry about spelling i am kind of in a fix here, i need a truck to drive! I have checked all fuses.
Second the above. Also, trying putting it in neutral, then switch to 4x4 high and put it into gear. If it goes into high you should be able to get it into 4x2 while in gear. 4x4 low is sometimes fickle when it comes to switching back and forth. Good Luck.

I am basically tried everything to get it out of 4x4 low. Pushing it six or seven feet both ways (read on the internet would sometimes work). I am shifting it correctly in netural foot on brake and even incorrectly. I have drove it forward and backward while shifting in and out of 4 low and leaving it in the 4 high position. I am not sure where my problem is i am wondering if it is the switch in the dash?
i was going to re install the motor in the morning. Correct me if i am wrong when i remove the motor from the transfer case, i should be able to take the dash switch and move it from 4x4 low to 4x4 high and see the transfer case motor move? ( the small triangular indention on the side of the transfer case motor which bolts to the transfer case.)
also could i use a test light on the wiring harness of the transfer case motor to test my dash switch?
