I'm assuming that this year of Ford has a push button to engage four low. If so the solenoid or the mechanical mechnism that it is connected to in the transfer case is sticking. I have no experience with that system, however I sure it's not much different in principal than the electric shift mechnism in a two speed axle. At least it's a place to look to start looking for a problem.
