This is a fairly common issue with newer 4WD vehicles. Either your vacuum solenoid or electric switch for the 4WD located on the transaxle is not engaging. You will want to have a mechanic check it out to determine the exact cause. It shouldn't be an expensive repair, just some troubleshooting time.
