Stuck in 4x4 low???

My 4x4 switch hasn't worked in weeks. No idea yet what's wrong but I switched it into 4x4 just for shoots and giggles and it worked. Problem is now I can't get it to shift out of low. How can I get it into 2 wd so I cAn get back home?

If all else fails you can bolt the shift motor off of the transfer case and spin the shaft to unlock the transfer case. But you'll have to come up with a way to hang the motor so that it ain't hanging by the wires.

Turns out it was a bad relay next to the battery box on the drivers side. Replaced them both and it works like a champ.
