4X4 dash light

Can anyone tell me the meaning of the 4x4 light. When I am idling or at low speed the light is on (and the 4x4 is engaged) when I get to 30 mph the light goes out. This doesn't mean I have gone out of 4x4 does it? What is the significance of the indicator going out.
Another dumb question but I just gotta know.

<font color="green">Don't know an answer to your question, but my old Zuk's 4x4 light was always on, even in 2wd. So, it might be the wires or the light is going bad? [img]images/graemlins/confused.gif[/img] </font color>

Pull the switch out of the tcase and clean it.

No, it doesn;t mean that you are out of 4wd. That would be way to technologically advanced for the Sami. [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img]

Re: 4X4 dash light

No, you will not be out of 4WD unless you shift the t-case. My light goes off and on depending on the bump I just hit. I think the foil-wire "sheet" on the back of the instrument cluster is going bad on mine; you might want to take a look at yours.

The sheet is usually green see-thru plastic with silver and copper traces, but if there are any places that foil has been puntured, it will look greyish. Hope this helps.
