your truck will not go anywhere if the transmission is in neutral, it shouldn't if you are on level ground, by putting the transfer case in neutral you are putting the transmission in neutral which is not a gear

The A/T P (automatic transmission park) indicator on the dash normally illuminates when the vehicle may be in danger of drifting, due to the transfer case being shifted into neutral. This (drift) can happen even when the transmission is in park - since the transfer case effectively disconnects the upper drivetrain, when shifted out-of-gear. If the transfer case is properly shifted in H or L ranges (not neutral) and the indicator is illuminated, then there may be an adjustment needed in linkages or switch positions or even a malfunction in the circuit, such as a bad switch (i.e neutral safety, transfer indicator) or in the other associated electrical components. The Toyota A340F transmission manual contains troubleshooting procedures for determining such malfunctions, including the false indication of an A/T P lamp, (visible on the dash combination meter).

The Neutral Safety switch This is a part found on all cars with automatic transmissions. It prevents the starter from engaging if the transmission is in any gear other than 'Park' or 'Neutral'. It also turns on the back-up lights when the transmission is shifted into "reverse". It can get out of adjustment or fail.

Squeeze in the clutch lever. To go from Neutral to 1st, you squeeze in the clutch and on most bikes press down on the shift pedal. To get to 2nd through 6th, squeeze the clutch, and lift firmly up on the pedal. Lift up as far as it will go, otherwise you will have shifted into Neutral.

You get high voltage and burn your appliances due to neutral failure?

It would happen in case of 3phase domestic use where consumer side load balancing is not being done and there is loose connection in the neutral wire. Due to the unbalance and poor neutral, the system neutral will be shifted and un balanced voltages will be recorded in all the 3 phases of the house. The phase loaded with much utilities will indicate less voltage and other will have high voltage. Gadgets connected to this phase will be damaged.

What is problem when front axle won't engage but transfer case does when shifted into 4wheel drive?

there's a vacum switch on my 86 that's on the top of the transfer case between it and the floor board. that switch operates a diaphragm located on the passenger fender well near the battery in the engine compartment. that diaphragm in turn is hooked to a cable that goes to the front axle, and engages. it. your problem could be the switch on the transfer case. that was the case on mine, and I decided that it was easier to route a manual vacum pump from the cab to that diaphragm to engage the front end than it would be to try to change out that switch. not reccomending this, just offering other possiblilites. On my 94 S10 Blazer the vacuum diaphragm is under the battery tray. You have to remove the battery and the tray to access the diaphragm.
