this is probably the first time in a very long time you tried to engage it. Take it to your mechanic, since you did not use it regularly, it seized and is in need of repair. I have a friend who owns a 1997 Chev 4 WD pick up and to d this day it works great, he put it in 4 WD at least once a month. That way it does no seize up.

remove and test electric actuator.
if functional, there may be a wiring problem.
I fixed mine (finally) with a fused #12 wire direct from the battery.
so to engage front hubs, just install the blade type fuse.
my problem was, bad wires near the starter/exhaust.
this had caused melt and damaged the wire.
