My Answer is based on clues, symptoms and info in your question. Please include everything. Thanks

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

The truck runs fine but it will not engage 4x4. The 4wd and 4wd low lights illuminate 6 times every few minutes while driving and when you first start the truck

Daniel :

You may want to check fuses.

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

Already did. Do you think the transfer case motor might be disconnected? I haven

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

Crawled under there yet

Daniel :

You can try to reset by disconnecting battery and holding cables together. for like 10 seconds

Daniel :

then reconnect

Daniel :

take psoitive cable off first the neg and put on positive first and ned second

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

ok

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

Is that the only way to reset it?

Daniel :

You can check and make sure they are connected and clean

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

It starts just fine every time. If the connection was loose I'd be having more issues

Daniel :

sorry about typo's my key board is messed up.

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

its cool

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

Any other suggestions?

Daniel :

this is testing but its done with a scanner. checking wires and connections and doing battery reset is only laymans checks.

JACUSTOMER-efq3kqna- :

Alright well I'll give those things a try. Thanks
