Default 4x4 problem

hey guys my low range does not engage.

the 4x4 part works but when i hit the switch for low range nothing happens. no click or lights light up. could it be a bad wire somwhere?

cause my normal 4x4 works

it could your electronics that causing your 4 lo not to engage, to even hear or feel anything when you push it, if not my guess its the electical, but i am not pro lol so dont take my word for it just offering my friendly opinion
