Is the 4x4 working? Was it scanned with a pro. quality scanner? Not a code reader!

no , the 4x4 is not working and it was scanned using 3 different code readers purchased from auto parts stores, which I assumed would let you know the problem area.OH, and yes it is the 4 button selector switch.

Code readers cant 'scan' the transfer case module or read it's codes! Suggest having it tested with a scan tool.

Thanks, guess I will have to take it in and have a quality scanner check it out. I appreciate your response and your time.

NP8 or NR4 RPO code on the glover box label? 3 or 4 button switch assy. The controller is responsible for illuminating the switch indicating the mode your in. As asked B4 does the 4x4 work or not and was it scanned with a real diagnostic monitor, not just an OBII scan tool. The transfer case shift motor is real common with those as well as the transfer case control module.

It is the 4 button assy and it was scanned using the OB scan tool, the 4x4 does not work at all.

Pushrod is right, Those code readers are what we call generic OBII code readers and are for the engine codes only. It wont scan other systems like body controllers , transfer case control modules, auto climate control modules and manufacturer fault codes over PO1000. It needs to be scanned be a pro grade scan tool. 4 button should be the NP8 system and is the more expensive one. There should be a label inside the glove box with one of those codes. The NP8 will have a connector going into the shift motor plus a short wiring harness that breaks out of it with a rectangular plug on the end.
