Shifter may need ajusting . Could also be a bad vaccuum switch (My 88 Wrangler had that problem)

No, the manual transfer case does not have a 4wd mode display

put the transfer case in 2 wheel high, if the light stays on a while after it is because there is a vacuum issue and the indicator is showing the wrong gear, this used to happen on my cherokee, give it a few minutes, you'll feel the front diff disengage.

there is quite a lot of light in the Sahara desert and at night it is quite a bit of light.

Your selector should be in the neutral position. Select 4WD H, and move selector into drive. Your light should stay on. If the light is turning off, you may have a problem with the actuator or hubs. Sometimes going from Park to Drive, your 4WD will disengage.

It is vacuum operated, give it a few minutes, or cycle from park to reverse, to drive and it should go off, it always will after a while.

The "part-time" indicator light illuminates when the vehicle's transmission is positioned into the 4 wheel drive status. Once the vehicle is returned to 2 wheel drive the front hub locks disengage and the indicator light goes out.

Yeah the light bar (sound bar) should fit all Wranglers. On the 1994 Wrangler, it mounts over the driver/passenger seats head.

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.

You can pull the relay and/or fuse out and the light will go off. It will also disengage a faulty abs system.

There is a vaccum motor assembly on the front axle that should have a hose attached to it... make sure the hose is secure and not leaking. The vaccum from this hose engages the four wheel drive to the front axle.

the Sahara desert More or less, the equator gets most fo the direct sun light. I think the Sahara is too far north.

It wants you to shift...I don't pay attention to it because it will tell you to shift when rpms are too low or high so it will drive you nuts if you try to shift with it.

Have vehicle scanned to determine the problem

User Avatar

mine would do the same.. if u try putting it in reverse and going a few feel then back into regular gear it shuts mine off

The engine light is on when the engine computer has detected a malfunction and set a trouble code.
