Brute force 4x4 not getting power

I have a 2008 brute force 750 and recently my 4x4 switch quit working. It says two wheel drive but is in 4. I took off my actuator thinking it was that but it didnt have anything wrong with it. I then tested the power and the switch was not getting any. The ground was fine but no power. I even tested the power from the actuator and still nothing. Any ideas? its driving me crazy. Im running 29.5 outlaws and staying in 4x4 seems to waste gas and burn belts.

The 4x4 has a controller under the seat; it's looks like the CDI but is a little smaller. Maybe you could borrow one that you could try in yours.

yea im goin to have to try that. and yes my speedo is working. I just noticed today that my belt housing actuator isnt making the noise that its suppose to when you turn the bike off. I checked it too and its also not getting any power. Has a good ground but no power. Im thinking it might be that 4x4 controller.
