Welcome. Since you have power coming from the switch, you need to check the coil in the front differential. I'm not sure if there is a connector close to it or not. Go to Partshark.com, they have downloadable pdf manuals. Good luck

You getting a 4wd icon on the speedo? There are two wires coming out of the front diff. Follow the brown one and hook a jumper wire to it and ground the jumper wire to the frame somewhere. There icon might still not work, but the 4wd should. The switch send a signal to the speedo and then to the diff. If the jumper trick works, you prob have a bad speedo. Same thing happened to my 06 700 efi.
