Just a thought, but wonder if it had anything to do with how fast you may have been going when switching form 2wd to 4wd. I think they advise not going more than 3 mph especially if going into 4wd low. Perhaps?

I did not switch to 4wd until after the light came on and I was trying to get it to go out.

I will have to look at this too...something about a light coming on when no slipping sensed.

When I backed out of my driveway I was on a small peice of ice and when I put it into drive the front end sounded like the drive shaft was knocking. Ive only had FWD cars in the past so I dont know anything about cars with drive shafts.

I pulled over turned the truck off and started back up and the light was gone. I even switched from 2wd to 4wd with no problems and the light never came back on so I just disregarded the warning. Well the other day the same thing happened again an now I'm a little worried. Is this a common problem and does anyone have any idea of what it could be. My truck has the 5 position transfer case if that makes a difference.
I had the exact same problem with my truck and the light. Not any noise that heard. I had just pulled onto a dry street accellerating normally. I was very cold though. The dealer said no error code was found.

Same thing happened to me. New truck 800 miles, took a sharp slow turn in 2wd and the inside rear wheel slipped a bit. The service 4wd light came on. Backing in my drive way I needed 4wd but it wouldn't engage. Shut truck off and restarted light was off and 4wd would work again. Very weird.

I went to the dealer today and they said they couldn't find any saved codes and that I was probably just a glitch

Thanks for the update Space85, I was wondering what you found out. I'll skip taking mine to the dealer then. I have not had any more episodes with the light.
