Hi allout, Unless you have an electrical short the selenoid should still be working. I would open or have your transfer case and/or your front differential examined. I'd be looking for abnormally worn/damaged gear teeth or even damaged universal joints. I'm not a transmission specialist, but this is sounds like more than just a selenoid going bad. Good luck!
