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
Next,
- 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.

Default Re: Bad transfer case motor?

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.
