Since you describe your mechanical issue as being a 'loud noise', I gather you are not really geared up to work on your car yourself. However I am assuming though that you have correctly concluded the car is stuck in low range. Did you put it in low range and it does not want to go back in high range? Please note that changing from low to high range requires the car to be in neutral.

It could be that the electric motor that drives the shift is stuck/broken. This will require the removal, test and replacement of said motor. Might be best to have a good mechanic look at it.

Just to be clear too, if your car is stuck in low range and you are attempting to drive on pavement, at any speed but especially fast, you will wind up with a far more expensive repair bill.

Are there any warning lights? Have you checked any codes? Do the hi/lo lights flash when selecting them, or does the car indicate anything at all?

Have you tried going slow and trying to shift on the fly? Otherwise the motor or solenoid on the transfer case could be faulty, or possibly the sensor is bum.

I read the manual book and try it in neutral didn’t work and driving slow and doing it also didn’t work the only light is Air suspension inactive. It drive great just need to get out of off road, I never put it in low from my knowledge I’m not understanding why jus came on

I would insert a fuse into position 37 to see if the transfer box shift motor will move to neutral and then remove the fuse and try again for high range. This would at least tell you if the shift motor is functional.
