99 Ranger 4X4 won't work + 4hi&4low lights blinking! Sign In

I just bought a used 99 Ford Ranger 4X4 with 103,000mi. Everything about it was clean (no leaks, knocking, squeaking,etc.) and I even test drove it twice to verify everything was decent for a 10 year old vehicle. The 2nd time I drove it I engaged the 4X4 and everything worked fine. The 4X4 indicator lights came on when in 4hi, and 4low. Then turned off when I switched out of 4wheel, all worked great.

The very next day I noticed a squeaking from the front end. I'm not sure if the squeak was there prior and I just didn't notice it or? Either way, the "check engine" light came on shortly after. Just for the hell of it, I tried the 4X4 again and this time the 4X wouldn't engage/lights wouldn't come on. But after I tried cycling the 4X4 a couple times the indicator lights started to blink on and off when in Drive. They continue to blink on/off every now and then since then and i can't get them to stop, nor will the 4X4 work.

Does anyone have any ideas or guidance to this problem?? Could the solenoid be stuck or something and the 4X4 system is like 1/2 engaged???
