Default 4wd light?

put the truck in 4wd the other day and now the light won't go off. it is back in 2wd now cause i spun the rears but i tried putting it back in 4wd and turned sharp and it seemed like it was kicking so I'm assuming the 4wd still works but the light is always on. i unplugged the indicator on the axle and it went off so i replaced the switch that screws in on the axle and its still on. not sure what to do next.

All I know about the axle disconnect is that you need to look at the 2 vacuum lines along the crossmember on the drivers side, theres a disconnect on each of them there, and if one or the other is disconnected, the axle disconnect will not respond to commands. on my trucks, I put zipties around the orange silicone hoses, scrunching them down to grip the tubes a little more'n the factory did.
