apparently the problem is low to high 4wd and it's a 2003 model and he has just changed solenoids etc.
That's a worry with modern 4wds, computer orientated, I own a DMAX.

When I was in Coober Pedy 2 weeks ago, the majority of vehicles in the CP were Dmaxes. Just saying.

I like to engage and disengage with the auto in neutral, sometimes i'll let it roll a little while disengaging, if i dont it tends to stay in low, mines a colorado but i think they all work the same.

Otherwise it could be a crook solenoid, cheers.

A few more details might help if there's a tech problem. eg. What year and model.

A transfer case can temporarily become stuck in 4WD if the vehicle has been driven around a tight bend or manoeuvred (like backing a trailer or caravan with lots of steering lock) in 4WD.

If that is the case your CP neighbour needs to drive forward and/or backward and/or alternate between the two to unwind the drive train.

Cheers

"needs to drive forward and/or backward and/or alternate between the two "

Should have added - in a straight line.

Reverse up for a bit and it should come out As said windup causes it.

Just another voice that says reverse a few metres. The front axle actuator binds on many different brands
Pajero forum has a big write up on it
Some times it will take a few goes

Our Prado does it on occasions and reversing and then going forward again will generally fix it for us
