KVF650 won't switch into 4wd

Hi Guys, i just realized that my 2003 Kawaskai Prarie 650 won't switch into 4wd. The belt light is not on and there is no flashing codes.

From what i've read it could be the 4wd drive actuator, which i can not locate, i do not have a factory service manual. if anyone could point me out to one it would be greatly appreciated!

Last week i got stuck in some deep mud, my machine started overheating due to mud stuck onto my rad. i cleaned it off and the overheating stopped.

Is it possible that the mud or the water used to clean it of, caused the problem with my prairie not being able to shift into 4wd?

Thanks, Alex

Either it is the fuse, ECM(little black box), or actuator, if your dash isn't blinking between 2wd-4wd.
