98 Explorer trans knocking/banging

In 4wd, above an idle, the car has a loud knocking noise. It will also do it in 2wd under HARD acceleration. I was told it was the transfer case or tranny. Both have been rebuilt and it still does it. I was also told because the tires on the front were new and the rear were older that it was confusing the sensor. I put all new tires on, no help.
I disconnected the electrical going to the transfer case and it solved the problem in 2wd. Besides not having 4wd, I also seemed to have lost passing gear. Also, now the 4wd lights flash on the instrument panel. I only use 4wd off road. Is there a reset for the sensor or module?
