The wheel bearing would not cause this. It sounds more like the transfer case actuator or transfer case control module. I would recommend having this done at dealership because there are probably related diagnostic codes stored in transfer case control module that should be checked before replacing anything. I'd expect around a $500 bill at shop. Let me know if you have questions, thanks.
