My car has an automatic transmission.

Based on your description, I believe that the issue is related to the transfer case. The transfer case could be having an electrical issue causing it to be locked in 4x4 low. I would recommend having your 4x4 system inspected by a qualified professional to determine the exact cause of the issue. This could be anything from a switch or sensor all the way up to a full replacement transfer case. I would be difficult to say without fully inspecting the vehicle. Many transmission shops also service transmissions so you might consider one of them.
