Possibly bad transfer case.

If a GM compact (T) truck, consider a bad 4x4 switch.

If an Explorer you might have a bad contact plate, replace the encoder motor.

Because your transfer case might be shot it could be the locking? get manuals, it costs 100 and u need to get out, but it won't fail you. if electronic 4x4 switch, you need a new switch if manuel linkages, adjust linkages

I have a 2002 4x4 Ford Explorer. 4x4 does not work. None of the LED's Auto High or Low on the switch light up. I verified that voltage was coming to the switch. Switch was replaced. It has code 735?

The 4x4 shift motor on your truck is likely bad. It is located on the back side of the transfer case. Any time the lights for your 4x4 don't come on, this is the most likely culprit. The dash mounted switch just tells the motor which of 3 positions it should be in (4x4 Auto, 4x4 High, 4x4 Low). There are contacts inside the motor which tell it which posotion it is in and whnere to stop for the different modes. If these contacts become dirty, it won't work properly. code P0735 is: Gear 5 Incorrect ratio ... This is a transmission code.... which is not affected by the 4x4...
