Re: 4-Wheel drive indicator on dash stays on...?
The question remains though, is it REALLY going out of 4wd or not? Get in some loose stuff....sand, gravel, etc....and put it in 2wd and even though the indicator is showing 4wd walk on it. If just the back spins it's probably just an indicator switch. If you hook up in 4wd you know the shift motor isn't kicking you back out. If it isn't, start by checking connections. If they are all good, use a voltmeter to check the motor. If it's getting juice the way the manual says when you shift, than I'd guess you would have to change the motor. HOWEVER, I want to state that without looking at it I can't say what needs to be done--I'm simply guessing from several thousand miles away. If in serious doubt, you may want to take it to a dealer to check out. They often know the problem or can diagnose it faster than you can. Lord knows that's true on my '95, but not on my '74!
