    Make sure the axle is still engaged. Try to turn the driveshaft when the T-case is in 2wd or neutral.

    Floor shift I'm assuming....

    Check the blue wire again but while in 2WD. If it's still hot then the switch on the T-case is stuck in. Simple to replace the switch and is available at most any parts store.

    Not too critical that the actuator is stuck in though, unless you're planning a long road trip then it affects fuel mileage slightly.

    Most guys WANT them to stay in while in 2WD. Quicker/easier 4WD engagement that way when the roads are less than bare. wesport
