You have changed the encoder motor on the transfer case?

Yea I have change it
Expert:  Mike Kelly replied 4 years ago.
Ok from the description of the issue since the motor has been changed and the fact that the gearbox has just been changed. This is the ECU that is causing the problem. The ECU is not communicating with the transfer case and gear box this is common after a gearbox swap. The ECU is not bad however it needs to be reset or programmed and this is done with a dealer scan tool or equivalent. This will solve the issue at hand.
