Default Bad transfer case motor?

Iíve been trying to troubleshoot why my 4wd isnít working and this is what Iíve found but cant seem to figure out the exact problem.
-when i turn the knob from 2wd to 4hi or 4lo, I hear the clicking from the module
-when I turn the knob, the 4hi and 4lo light comes on the dash
With those two things working, I know itís not a relay or the module
- I can spin the front driveshaft by hand when itís NOT in 4hi or 4lo. But I CANT spin it myself, when I turn the knob to 4hi or 4lo.
- Does this mean itís NOT the transfer case motor? If the front driveshaft is activated when I activate the 4wd? Could it possibly be something wrong with my hubs? They are automatic hubs, not manual.

It sounds to me like your issue is likely coming from one or both of you hubs. It sounds like the transfer case is engaging properly.
