stuck in 4wd

Searched but no help maybe some one can make a suggestion

Used the 4wd in the snow a week ago now my front drive line
spins all the time no matter where the t-case lever is except neutral.

not sure if the axel is engaged but i get no 4wd light and feel no
vacum from either vacum line at the axel.

any suggestions?

Well, consider yourself lucky, most posts are about the opposite problem!

Pull the cover of the front axle disconnect; it sounds as if the shift fork is somehow stuck, locking the collar to the shaft.

X2 it's that damn actuator. You can lock it over, balance the front shaft and call it a day. Or replace the unit with a posi lock switch. I have the switch and I like it but I drive a lot on the freeway.
