will not go into low range

Ok I have an 05 4x4 lariat so it has the electronic 4wd. The truck does not seem to go into low range when I go to activate it. The light never comes on nor the power shift to low torque. Anyone know what might be going on. I am not a fan of this electronic crap.

I know this is a dumb question but, are you putting the truck in neutral when shifting into low range? Also does the 4 high work?

I have the same issue. Even after stepping on the brake, truck running and tranny in neutral, no go. I have 4 high but no low-range. I'm thinking it's either the switch or...???
