Welcome to JA.

 

Make sure you put the fuses back in the right spots in the fuse box. If you put a fuse back in spot 12 on the passenger fuse box it will put the car into neutral for towing purposes. Check that out because that may be the issue. Also refer to the diagram on the inside of the cover for the box and it will tell you what goes where.

You could have a problem with the transger case control module. Try to shift the tcase into low or high and see what happens. You can pick up a module used since it doesnt need to be programmed below is the procedure.
