take it to the dealier (your better off) Answer 2 If you dont feel like talking to a dealer then you can inspect your bushings in your steering linkage. The most common bushings to go out are the ones on your tie rod ends and on your pitman arm. If you are mechanically inclined you can replace those with no trouble. Just remember that when you replace your tie rod ends your front end alignment will be off. You will need to have your alignment redone or do it yourself with a tape measure or your tires will wear funny.

The 4wd light should go out, also you'll notice easier steering and smoother control while driving, while in 4wd the front tires will be difficult to steer, or will seem to resist steering at low speed or a sharp turn.
Find some loose gravel, dirt, etc... that you won't get stuck in and stab the throttle to make the tires spin. Try it in 2WD first, then put it in 4WD. You'll pretty much know at that point.

4WD shouldn't be operated while on dry concrete or asphalt. Not only does it affect steering, it also wears tires and can stress the drive train. While you should be able to turn the steering, the vehicle will tend to drag when you try to take a turn if it's in 4WD.
