is it the turn dial 4x4 selector or the manual selector?if its the dial it could be a bad motor that engages the hubs. It could be the vacuum switches in the engine compartment on the passenger side, with ours it was the one that kept it in 2 wheel drive that was gone, vented vacuum so 4x4 would not pull in.
does your front axle hav lockouts? engage them. What kind of axles do you have. Is the sshifteractually hooked up?
Sounds like it might be the vaccum switch on the front axle.
A 1998 Ford Ranger is rear wheel drive ( or 4X4 capable )
Hello, I too have a 1998 Ford Ranger that the 4 wheel drive does not engage. I have been doing some research online and have found one main reason for this. Since our Fords are shift on the fly 4 wheel drive the hubs automatically engage for us when we switch that little nob. Well after 100,000 miles of doing this the automatic hubs wear down and the 4 wheel drive is unable to engage. I have done some research and those automatic hubs are about $200 each. But you can get the manual locking ones for about $75 each. If you get the $75 ones you will have to manually lock your hubs when using 4 wheel drive, but they will not wear out like the automatic ones do and they are cheaper.
There should be a dial next to the temperature controls that say... 2wd/awd/4l/4h
It is rear wheel drive, until you shift it into 4 wheel drive.

The only way to get true 2-wheel drive would be to replace the transfer case.

Check the linkage between the shifter and the transfer case. If its ok, go in reverse for about half a block and then try to engage it. If that doesn't work, maybe you have a vacuum leak somewhere.
try putting vehicle in neutral, then unlock hubs.then put vehicle out of 4 wheel drive
