Check the front hub fluid, does the light come on when you switch to 4x4?

Best thing to do is download the service manual for it and check that out. There are plenty of links around here for free ones.

1st place to look?....the hubs.
How do you know AWD is not engaging?
Have you had it up on blocks to test it? You can't really tell anything about it just driving around the yard.
