Hello, is this a gas or diesel engine? You didnt see any water contamination in the relays when you inspected them?Have you done any recent modifications or repairs to the vehicle and now having this concern?

Gas V 10. Not water electric switch cycles but not moving anything in transfer case
Expert:  HDGENE replied 6 months ago.

Ok it could be an issue with the transfer case shift motor. Remove the motor from the case and see if the motor moves when you cycle the 4x4 switch. Inspect the driven shaft at the transfer case the shift motor turns. If the shaft is broken that would explain the 4x4 behavior. If it looks ok, you should be able to manually turn the shaft and put the truck in 4x2. If the motor is unrepsonsive.It could be a failed shift motor on the transfer case
