Default Flashing 4wd Light

I had my 4WD light flashing while in 4wd. It was engaged but I couldnt figure out why the light was flashing, and niether could the dealership, but after a while the service 4wd light came on, and turns out the 4WD module was bad and needed to be replaced. That is, a switch inside the knob. Turned out to be a quick fix. I couldnt find much info on this so i thought id share my experience

Glad it was an easy fix. Have to keep this in mind if I ever have trouble.

Default Mine now...

Mine started doing the exact thing... it is engaged, but light is flashing... did you by the switch yourself, or did the dealership do it.

If it is flashing it means that the computer is refusing the 4wd input selection for some reason, or has not quite engaged yet. If its fully engaged, the light will be solid. Glad to hear you got it fixed.
