welcome to the forum. start by seeing if theres any power to the switch, then if the light bulb is any good. once you see that both is fine and your getting power down to the front end you can check onthe fluid and hubs.

Take the front rack off, remove front cover find the two wires that go to the front hubs, I think they are grey and red, unplug one side at a time and see if there is 12 volts giong to them when the awd switch is on, if there is then its in the hubs, coils , armature plate, ect if there is not I bet the switch in the shifter is bad.
