new drive shaft i checked all the fuses and made shore that rear end was good but still

Are you talking about it going in to automatic all wheel drive, where the system automatically detects slippage? Then applies power to slipping wheel? If you have 4X4, with a shifter, you don't have that. AWD means no driver input. 4X4 means you manually shift in to 4-wheel drive. What switch are you 'changing'?

Or am I getting this all wrong and you can't get it in to 4 wheel drive? Is the switch in this image? Can you describe it, or if you have image software draw an arrow to it? click to size up
