A few more questions. Do you have a **** on the dash to control the 4WD and if so does it have a setting called ď Auto ď. Lastly, how many miles since you changed the fluid in the transfer case.

The transmission is separate from the transfer case. The transfer case fluid needs to be changed every 50,000 miles.
The fact it’s an auto transfer case makes this even more important because there are clutches inside the case that rely on the fluid being in good condition.

Ok Thank you very much! Now the message on the message board is gone but it also came back on and off a different time, I read that there may be a glitch with a sensor on the transfer case.

The (that) transfer case has clutch packs, and an electric shift motor. Always important to service everything. These images are a transfer case, shift motor (probably your issue), and clutch disk that was removed, and disgarded. Son's 2000 took a transfer case, replaced input bearing, drilled, screwed the clutch disk together so as to get rid of the shift motor. Engages the front differential when he needs 4wd.
