Default 4 wheel drive not engaging

I have a 96 ranger xlt with 4.0 engine and automatic transmission. the 4x4 and 4x4 Low lights come on, but the front wheels do not engage...nothing more embarrassing than getting stuck in my own driveway...any suggestions will be appreciated.

I don't know if it is electric or manual...there is a switch on the dash.
2WD, 4WD, 4WD LOW.

Yea if it was manual you'd have a shifter on the floor. Ok so now that you know you have electric crawl under the truck and get a friend to flip the switch and with you being under the truck see if you can hear or see the 4*4 ingadgeing
