Not to insult your intelligence but if you are trying to shift into 4 low you must be stopped and the transmission must be in nuetral. 4 high can be engaged while driving at any speed below 45 mph. If 4 high is what your trying to do and the light blinks it could be the solenoid on your transfer case is seized up or broken. I have had my solenoid freeze up in the winter and through repeatedly turning it off and on it broke loose and started working again.

on a side note, if you have manual 4x4 instead of the electronic switch inside, you wil need to turn the hubs from free to lock

The actuator may not be working properly. The blinking light tells you something is wrong.
