I know it sounds too simple but , I have the same problem on my 92. Just crawl under and tap on the 4x4 solenoid with a wrench or small hammer. it's next to the transfer case. I still have to do this every once in a awhile


There is possible the switch could be bad or the 4x4 shift module located behind passenger side kick panel. there is a code you cane check for that. write me if you need help on that @ or the electric module on the transmission.

Your transfer caseon your 1989 jeep grand wagoneer will not engage?

If the shift lever on the floor won't move to engage there is most likely a linkage problem. If the linkage seems to move and you shift the lever under the dash from 2wd to 4wd and the transfer case does not engage look for a vacuum problem. the lines can be very brittle and break easily. There is a vacuum motor on the transfer case that must work in order to engage the 4wd. if all of these seem to work then the problem is likely to be internal.
