4x4 not working since all of system taken out and refitted!

Guys , my 4x4 is now not working since i removed it and refitted it after restoring the engine bay.
Seems the acc block isnt functioning and im getting no wooshing or clicking when running.
Guessing i have an electrical fault or maybe a problem with the solenoid .
Was working ok before all removed so not sure whats up here?
Any thoughts most welcome!

was always told you could not do this on the later model turbos??
If this is wrong, how do you check them? Guess its through the plug in the bay using pins?
Have just read that the number 2 fuse is the main power fuse for the 4x4 ( never knew that) Also did check the solenoid for operation via a live from battery but odly it seems the abs unit was loud clicking instead of the acc system?? no idea if thats meant to be the case?

That's correct.

Up to 1994 you could do paper clip test. Pin A-J

After 1994 onwards you can't. You HAVE. To use Tech 1

LE's are P reg so no pin J
Tech 1 only.
