Make sure that front diff is getting 12v when the switch is turned on. If it isn't you have a wiring issue.
I would find the plug and disconnect it Its by the diff and Apply 12v to it from the battery and see if the front wheels will lock and turn. You should have it in the air so all the wheels can spin. Fronts wont lock unless rears are spinning.
Out of curiosity does it work in reverse with the override button pushed in? If you can not make it work by applying voltage directly to the diff then you likely have a cage or dirt issue in the front diff. They come apart really easily and not many parts in there.
If you take it apart, make sure the armature plate is flat and the magnet has good even pull on the plate when energized.
