Default 1998 F150 4x4 not working.

I have a 98 F150 and my 4x4 quit working. I checked all the fuses and they are good. I have a new transfer case motor and actuator. Still doesn't work. I am thinking it is the GEM module. Anyone that can help? Is there a way to bypass the Gem module? Thanks.

Broken vacuum lines, fault shift for in differential, bad 4x2 or 4x4 solenoid.

No, put it back into 2wd. If it's locked in 4x4 mode on dry pavement, you'll be buying a ton of new parts for the front end.

Just posted this a few days ago cuz I'm sick of seeing this same thread again and again when a FIVE second Google search will help you troubleshoot the entire system A-Z... I mean, you can get this whole system checked out quicker than it takes to wait for someone to answer this question in here...
