1st thing to check is to make sure that T-case has fluid... No leaks or holes.

What year make model do you have?

Also Automatic or Manual and engine & t-case details?

They are not electric..... they have linkage to the transfer case.... some axles have a center link in the axle tubing that is controlled by a vacuum line.

This is correct. they had the vac disco for a while. Im not sure the exact year they stopped. Odds are with the XJ that when u put it in 2wd the transcase went to 2wd. They way they are made inside it pretty much moves a sleeve down the main shaft. In my XJ with disco front axle it will say its in 4wd b/c the axle is still vac connected. The transfer case is really in 2wd though. Once u turn it off and let the vacuum pressure off it would not say 4wd anymore. ( I know the inside b/c I just pulled a few apart recently and learned how it all works.)
