It sounds like you have a wiring issue and I would start by disconnecting the transfercase to see if water is in the connector then start tracing the harness to see if you have any spots where it's rubbing the frame or transmission.. The TIPM which is the fusebox under the hood controls the transfercase and if it gets wet it can cause this issue..

Replaced TIPM $750.00 no change.
Replaced transfer case motor no change.

Then you most likely have a wiring issue and you will need to start opening up harness's until you find the short..

What Customers are Saying:

I AM VERY GLAD THAT I TOOK A CHANCE ON YOUR PROBLEM SOLVING SKILLS. I WAS SUCCESSFUL IN REPLACING THE FUEL PUMP. MY TRUCK RUNS LIKE A CLOCK. IT RUNS LIKE THE DAY I BOUGHT IT. NO LUNGING FORWARD, THE TURBO REACTS THE SECOND I STOMP ON THE GAS, AND IT HAS A LOT MORE POWER AND EVEN SOUNDS BETTER TO ME. IT SAVED ABOUT $500.00 BY DOING THE WORK MYSELF. I GIVE YOU ALL THE CREDIT FOR YOUR DIAGNOSING THE PROBLEM, JUST FROM THE SYMPTONS I GAVE YOU OVER THE e MAIL. I WILL USE YOUR WEB SITE AGAIN AND REFER MY FRIENDS. THANKS SO MUCH FOR THE HELP.
