Is the ABS light on? It may not have tripped a code yet that will display the light, but I'm willing to bet there is a code stored in the module.

Humming noise....the hub itself may be failing causing incorrect speed sensor readings. Doesn't matter though, since the sensors probably have to be purchased within a new hub anyways.

There are 2 speed sensors on the t.case that get metal shavings on them and give the computer false readings and engages the 4x4. I've pulled them out, cleaned them and have solved the problem that way. Those vehicles also are notorious for posi clutches going bad. good luck
