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.
