Default 2006 XLT 4wd not engaging

I just bought a 2006 Ranger XLT 4X4. After a rare snow in TN, last night, I tried to engage the 4wd, this morning. It did not engage. The lights on the dash do come on briefly when I start it, but when I turn the switch to either position (4 high or 4 low), no lights and no 4wd. Any thoughts or suggests for a newbie to the Ranger world?

Can you hear a click about 3 seconds after you turn the switch? It could possibly be a bad shift motor on the transfer case.

I haven't noticed any clicking after I start it. But I will check it.

It should click after you turn the switch.
