Why is the service 4wheel drive light on 03 silverado?

you could have a leaky or damaged transfer case.
The vehicle is due a service soon

Yes but, if the light is flashing no.
The light that comes on when 4 wheel drive is engaged is not the service light. It is just an indicator light that comes on to let you know the 4 wheel drive is engaged. It will go off when the 4 wheel drive is disengaged.

Can you drive my car with a yellow service light looks like the shape of an engine on your dashboard?
You can drive your car with the yellow 'service engine' light on the dashboard, but it is not recommended. This light warns you of the need to have the engine serviced.
That requires an OBDII engine scanner.
engine code reader go to autozone its free tgere
It is best to be stopped. Pull the 4wd lever backwards into 4wd and the icon on the dash should light up. If this doesn't work there is a problem with this system.
take the positive off the battery for five minutes then re hook it
The proper way is with a scan tool after repairing the cause of the code that turned the light on. A batterydisconnect may also clear it.
In some vehicles, it is possible to reset the four-wheel drive service light by turning on the ignition, but not starting the car. The gas pedal should be pushed repeatedly a few times. Alternatively, a dealership can reset the light.
The light is on because you have a problem with the air bag system. Until the problem is fixed by a professional the light will remain on and the air bag system will be out of service.

You can drive the car but should have the vehicle checked soon as possible. BUT if the service engine soon light is flashing, stop the vehicle when it is safe to do so then shut off the engine immediately. If you continue to drive the vehicle with the service engine soon light flashing you will do catastrophic damage to the catalytic converter(s).

Why would Service Four Wheel Drive light come on occasionally and not engage 4wheel drive when light is on?
If you have push button 4-Wheel Drive, it is recommended that you use it every once in a while, in order to keep gunk, rust, and corrosion to build up on moving parts. The mostly likeley (though not definite) reason would be that you let the 4-wheel drive unused for so long that corrosion has built up on the parts and the actuator that engages the 4-Wheel Drive doesn't have the power to engage it… Read More
There are a number of things that can cause this, mostly electrical sensors. The first thing to check are the ABS (anti lock brake) sensors, there is one at each wheel. These are usually behind the brake rotor, and you can find them by following the wire you see near the brakes.

Normally a flashing check engine light means you have a misfire. Do not ignore this as an engine misfire will damage the O2 sensor and the catalytic converter which are very expensive to replace. Have this repaired immediately.

A common reason the service 4 wheel drive light goes on in the silverados is a malfunction of the dash mounted transfer case control switch. There is actually a TSB on the switch assembly. This is also the easiest thing to fix. You can buy a new assembly online for around 50 dollars and it should fix the problem. But to be sure, if you are able to aquire one, the next time the light… Read More
If you mean a low fuel light, then NO.
Verify that the cap is tight. Drive for a couple of days, and if the light is still on, you have a vapor leak in the fuel system and will need service. Verify that the cap is tight.
