stop, put trans in nuetral, then put it in 4wd, reverse a couple of feet to engage it then your off. do the same thing to take it out of 4wd. if it still does the same thing then check you linkage. it could be worn out or out of ajustment.
on the push button you should just be able to do it on the fly to get it into 4wd Hi... on 4wd Lo it is different but thats another story... when switching into Hi, take your foot off the gas and give it a little bit to get engaged, then you should be engaged. also don't be going faster than about 40-50 mph or else you will mess something up, also in bad conditions where you will need Hi, you shouldn't be going that fast anyway
