Message:
Well I drove home from the beach in 4 hi doing about 55-60 mph. I live about 10min from the beach.I stopped at a red light to turn and it felt like I had the e-break on. thats when I saw I was still in 4hi. I had to back up just a little for it to go back in to 2hi.Now my 4low works and the light come on but, 4hi light does not come on.
thanks for any help

the light doesnt come on but does the 4hi still work? i had a leak from my transfer case last fall. i took it in and got it fixed. afterwards the 4hi light comes in very dim or doesnt come on at all but the 4hi still works just the light doesnt. one more thing why would you drive it in 4hi on the highway going that fast? the drivers manual says never exceed 55 so if you kept her there or under it shouldnt have done anything but it sounds like you were going faster so i dont know. just next time, dont go that fast in 4hi

I forgot to turn the switch back to 2wheel drive when i got off the sand a the beach. The sand was real bad.I never drive in 4hi or 4lo on the street. When I turn it to 4 hi I can hear it trying to go into 4x4, not sure in it goes in or not. I can put it in to 4 low and the light come on and i can tell it's in 4low. So my 4low seems to be good.
thanks again!!

just tried the 4 hi and it's working!! Just no light comes on at the switch. You think the light just went out?? or something else?? Can you replace just the light??
thanks again

the light on my 4hi seems to come on when it wants. all winter after i had the leak in the transfer case fixed the light never came on. just a couple days ago i took my truck up some back wood trails. by the end of the trail the light was on bright as could be. then when i went the next day the light was so dim it was hardly visible. im not too worried about it tho as long as the 4x4 works im satisfied, just i have to check the control lever on the floor every time i go somewhere.im not an expert or anything but as long as everything works just the light doesnt come on i wouldnt worry about it
