Check the fuses first. After that check the range select motor (shifts transfer case).

the drive shaft could be spinning because the hubs are locked and not because the transfer case is engaged. have someone turn the switch in the cab and listen for the motor enaging the t-case. you may have a bad motor or fuse or wiring or connector etc etc. good luck

To fix to factory gunna run you like 400 bones. All new seals and hub. Option B. Clean real good. Install warn hubs. About 200 for the set. No issues from now on.
