Why does your four wheel drive light on your 1993 Sahara Jeep Wrangler stay on after disengaging?

I don't know if it's the same for your 4WD as mine, but sometimes the transfer case will stay engaged after use when load is on the gears. Try this, stop the vehicle, put it in reverse and back up 20 or 30 yards to see if it comes out of 4WD. It usually works for me.

It means that your 4wd is engaged. Jeep wrangler TC's dont have a differential so both the front and rear driveshafts turn at the same rate. This makes for bad use on dry pavement.
