Hi there I know you guys have covered this loads but I can't find it I have 2.2dti limited 1999 lwb I have the 4x4 symbol flashing at me on the dash and I don't think its engaging the 4wd I've been told it might be the vacuum? It sounds like the passenger sides not engaging does this sound right can you tell me what I need to do thanks

When you push the button the first thing that tries to engage is the rear actuator on the transferbox. This then sends a message to the ecu, which will then tell everything else to work. I would start here and check that you an hear it.
They fail particularly if 4wd isn't used much.
As mention vacuum pipes are also a common culprit and cheap and easy to replace if you are unsure when they were done last.
