Do you hear the hublock solenoid click when in you engage 4x4?
the scanner reads switch position, plate 1,2,3,4, open or closed, shaft rotation cw/ccw.

prove out? do you mean come on -yes when key is in start position and when you let off the key

Its weird how it went in when you first cleared the code after installing the solenoid. I know when there are uncleared codes or hard faults from other components it will usually not operate. If you have the codes cleared and the contact plate code keeps coming back and it has a new motor then the next step will be to pinpoint test the wires from the contact plate to the module, thats all thats left besides the module itself. This is kind of getting too involved for diagnosis over the web. I am going to opt out, let me know if you want a refund and I will request one for you.
