Is it that 4x4 isn't coming in or your hubs aren't locking? I'm assuming you have electroic shift on the fly (ESOF). Is the dash light coming on? Have you tried 4 Low?

Check your vaccum lines to the hubs. There might be a leak.

Without knowing exactly what you've tried, the sympoms, and your truck's configuration, it's going to be hard to diagnose your problem.

But, rest assured, you'll get all the help in the world here at the .org!

have someone turn the knob while you climb underneath and tap on the shift motor on the transfercase with someothing hard. If it locks in while your tapping on the motor, replace the shift motor. Thats probably what you have going on. it could be a switch or wiring as well though, so dont just start replacing parts

Check the actuator on the Transfer Case. It might have come loose. Also...check all of your fuses under the dash, (behind the panel under the steering column). Also, try shifting into 4wd with the truck in park.
