Why does your service 4 wheel drive light come on when you engage 4 wheel drive?

What would cause the 4 wheel drive button light to just keep blinking off and on but not to engage into 4 wheel drive?

The 4 wheel drive light will do this most often if you try to switch into 4wheel low at a high speed, usually over 35 MPH. 4 wheel low is made mainly for when you are stuck and or when in mud or snow. If the question was for 4 wheel high. Stop the car press the button and it should stay on without blinking. If you suspect that it is not going into 4 wheel high or low. The valve unit that engages the gear may be the problem. Front underside of the transmission, has wires coming out of it.
