Transfer Position switch

Just picked up a 1994 4 runner with a "screwed tranny"
inspected the tranny, all is fine, threw her in 4 low, and i can drive it, however 4high and 2wd dont move at all.

Been searching around all day, does it sound like a transfer position switch?

No metal in the tcase fluid or anything, no grinding, sure seems like a sensor

If the parking pawl does not hold, the high range is blown. In that case your best bet is to replace the trans/t-case assy.

It does hold, just pulled the transfer position switch and ohm tested, getting a reading on low and high 4, but nothing on 2, which going by the diagram i found it doesn't show anything reading wise on 2, so it looks like the switch is fine.

Tranny shifts perfectly thru all the gears in 4low, but not the others
at first thought i figured high range was blown
