Exclamation "POP"... now wont go in to gear in 2x4 or 4x4

so... was JUST gettin to the Mud Hole last night... put it in 4-wheel high.. while in Nuetral, and heard a "pop". put it in Drive...and, got NO response from the wheels. tried reverse...same thing. put it back in neutral, switched to 2x4 and got the same thing. it gives a SLIGHT rocking when I put it in gear...but, the wheels just ain't turnin !! ANY IDEAS ?? Drivetrain ?? Differential ?? Transmission ??

It's a 99 Ranger XLT Step Side, 4X4. 6-cyl, 3.0L


ANY help would be Apppreciated !!
Jeff

I would suspect the shift motor took a shit or something is failing. Try taking the shift motor out and manually turning the rod in there. The T-case is marked something like 2hi 4hi 4lo right on the aluminum when you get the motor off. At least do this to eliminate the shift motor.

Something is wrong with your transfercase it could be the shift motor i would check that before i done anything else.

I think the purple wire is power. You could take it off and put power to it to see what it does. Not 100% on the purple, might be pink...???

----------

scratch that, unbolt it and plug it back in and operate the switch, if it moves its prolly ok. easy test
