I have a 04 explorer limited 4.6L the 4x4 high light flashes

Customer Question

I have a 04 explorer limited 4.6L the 4x4 high light flashes 10 times then is off for about 2 minutes and repeats itself. I have it in*****auto. When I put it into 4x4 high i noticed the wheels were grabing the road on a turn. So i guess my concern is do I have 4wheel drive and a semsor is bad or do I have a real issue with 4wheel drive not working?
JA: Do you have power steering? Have you checked the power steering fluid?
Customer: ?? Power steering fluid is related to this issue?
JA: Are you fixing your Explorer yourself? What have you tried so far?
Customer: I am not. I have not tried anything yet. My options I think are to replace the PCM since the 4x4 control module is inherint in the PCM or replace sensors on the transmission. I just dont know enough to determine what should i replace.
JA: Anything else you want the mechanic to know before I connect you?
Customer: Not at this time
