Default 4 wheel drive system tester question

I have a 1999 4x4 Ranger with a 3.0 that we just got and the 4 wheel drive doesn't work. The 4 High and 4 low lights will come on and I can sometimes hear a click but I have no idea how to diagnose these. I've only had 1 other 4x4 Ranger and so far it's always worked in it. I just recently got a 1996 1997 1998 1999 Ford Ranger service repair manual OEM to help me figure it out and 1 of the tools it says I need is a STAR (NGS) 007-00500 tester. I've tried tracking 1 down but with used ones being $200 or more with no cards or cables that's pretty high for somebody on disability and a fixed income. Are there any other testers or code readers that would do the job and are there any other diagnosing manuals for other testers? All of the Chiltons and Haynes Manuals I've read just basically tell how to replace parts,not diagnose.

I just ordered a Rotunda 007-500 tester on ebay but I'm not sure which card or cards I need to test the drive train,do any of you know?

Thanks for any help.

I just talked to a Ford Expert on a question site and got my answer so you mods can delete this thread if you want.
