Welcome, I'm Chris (aka Moose) I prefer to work when others don't, I am here around lunch and after dinner till after midnight.

A transfer case in neutral means it is stuck between high and low range. This can be a concern with just about any part of the system except the switch. The more likely causes would be the shift motor and the shift forks inside the transfer case. If you remove the shift motor, can you manually shift the transfer case back in 4 high or 2wd?
