There is a common flaw on any make and model that used electronic shifting and that is the transfer case shift motor, sometimes you can get them to run briefly if you tap on the motor as someone pushes the switch to what ever mode you want selected. Replacing the shift motor is the only real cure and it will happen again in time. The other problem is the wiring right where it comes through the floor just due to normal flex it breaks the small wires in the loom. HTH
