Default 4wd lights not coming on and cant change to 2wd

Hello friends. I have a 2003 ford ranger xlt.

I brought it to my mechanic to get the front bearings changed and when i got it back today, it felt like it was stuck in 4 wheel drive, even though the selector switch was in 2wd.

I took it in the the snow and sure enough, the car is in 4wd high. I am sure of it.


But my lights on my dash that usually say 4wd or 4wd low are not on at all, and when i move the switch to change it, nothing happens, no lights and no sound... I always used to hear a clicking sound when i switched from 2wd to 4wd.

I checked all my fuses and they are all good. I checked the number 5 fuse which my manual said is the 4wd controller box fuse and it is good.


Does anyone have any clue what is going on? Any help is greatly appreciated!
