Q: 4X4 High intermittenly engages without cause; noise from front end. on 2002 Ford Explorer

Rookie cbe0621eac06868b3efe0d8d1d3611e23c60d3114864ea2ec19a68cfbd3eebab
Has anybody had this proplem. What could cause this.
The 4X4 High light intermittently comes on (normal dry flat road). The front end of the car makes a noise like something is rubbing against a tire, a whining noise. I press the 4X4 Auto button and all goes back to normal. This occurs mostly before the car gets to a good operating temp and sometimes with a thump-thump noise in the rear end. Otherwise the SUV runs well. Over 115000 miles.
