The switch tells the light to turn on and off, give a dealer a call and talk to the service manager and ask him what part to replace. Worked for me in the past. grin.gif

I have a GMC Suburban and the lights on my 4-wheel selector kept changing (not the gears itself). I ended up having to replace the switch; fairly easy to do and the part wasn't that bad

The switches are really common on the Chevy/GMC trucks! I haven't ran into any of the Dodges with this problem yet. I'll ask around tonight and post if I hear anything!

Could be the switch and it could also be the sensor in the transfer case that confirms it is engaged. Also could be a short at the bulb.

Either way, I would believe that your 4wd works just fine, but your light/sensor/switch will need replacing.

There is a switch on transfer case, it's the only one on it, check if it's plugged correctly, and if it is trace wires to see if there's a cut or short somewhere.

It's better to eliminate all the easy fixes before replacing switch.

I wiush I knew it 1 month ago, I just threw away my truck's transfer case, and switch was still there.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
