I would say it would be the actuator on the trasfer case, the push button chevys were famous for failling

you could try testing the switch or use a jumper wire to bypass the switch

you would have to figure out witch wire the switch gives power to then use a peice of wire a couple inchs long with some aligator clips on the end of something.

the fix

I just fixed my 91 Ranger transfer case with a 1 /12 work and some elbow grease and 5/16's fuel line. The link https://www.ford-trucks.com/forums/s...d.php?t=123542 read the whole thing first though and it doesn't hurt to google it and read more sources.

It really does help to have it on a bench unless you have a helper or three hands IF you take apart the motor itself. The brushes for the armature really are a pain , I did mine in a lube bay and proped it on the transfercase skidplate. Took me 5 try's to get the armature in place :-)
