The clicking you are hearing is the actual transfer case engaging. The reason the 4x4 isn't working is because, 1. You have manual hubs that have to be turned to the lock position or, 2. You have auto hubs that aren't working do to a vacuum leak. Does your heat work properly, as in does it come out the vents on the dash when on that setting or does it always come out of the defrost vent?
