    Can't get the beast in 4WD suspect bad transfer case ball switch.
    Located two switches on transfer case one on the front side with 2 pins and one on the back side with three pins. Which is the transfer case ball switch that would actuate my 4WD? Thanks

    Are you sure it isn't your actuator?

    I believe the ball switch is the 2 wire switch, the other one would be the speed sensor

    Changed the Actuator as given it's history I was sure that was it. Getting good electrical check to both actuator and front of the two plugs on the transfer, further research on the site, told me that the ball switch was the forward one. no 4wd lights on the cab shift console. Rock Auto sells a two wire and three wire. Pulled it off and it is the three wire. Thanks for the reply

    I thought this was same on my case but what if i already have the beast and i cannot change from 4x4 to 4x2 what is the culprit? I am just using it on highway so i don't need 4x4 traction. Mine is not working. Is it the actuator? transfer case ball switch? transfer case electrical switch or some wiring problems?
