The early cars have a list of things that might cause the problem you
describe. The shift motor on the transfer case can move slightly,
enough to confuse the controller module. The controller module itself
may have failed. You may have a blown fuse.
There is an extensive resource on the problems and solutions compiled
at http://draco.acs.uci.edu/explorer/ This site maintains an archive
of listserve and usenet posts on Expolorer issues dating back to the
early '90's You also have searchable access to early usenet posts
from this group through Google's online service at google.com.
Hope this helps!

The problem is *usually* the servo motor on the transfer case however I
think I read about someone's wiring coming loose from the buttons once or
twice. I have two Explorers (91 and 92) and on both of them the servo motor
just got stuck and it was a matter of taking apart the motor and lubricating
it to get it to work again.
I suggest you do a google.com search and read some of the old posts
concerning this matter as it has been discussed many times.
Try taking it to Tuffy... They check 4 free... may have a oil leak in the
piece (sorry can't remember the exact name) that controls the 4 wheel
Drive... Mine is 96 & I have the same leak... Needs new gasket... Hope
