Did you check to see if the vacuum lines actually had vacuum? Did you check to see if vacuum was present at the solenoid? Does the solenoid "click" when changes are made to the 4X4 controls? Did you check for Did you check that the vacuum from the solenoid to the axle actuator was being applied to the actuator?

It is electric ,no vacum,you can put in two wheel and unplug solenoid,its probably a ECM,need to have fixed by ford,unplugging is a temporary sulution but it confuses the computer and may make it change gears more often in overdrive.
