    The transfer case is shift controlled electronically. There is a TCCM (Transfer
    Case Control Module + the encoder motor sensor + the selector switch on
    the dash. The problem may be in any one of those three. best to take it to
    a dealer and use the DRB scan tool to analyze the fault.

    I ended up having to take it in and the problem was the 4wd control chip which needed to be replaced. I think I ended up spending about $600 to get it fixed.
