Morning guys, happy thanksgiving
Got a question concerning my 4wd indicator light……. 95 YJ, 4 liter 5 speed
My 4wd works, both high and low, but the indicator light on my gauge panel doesn’t come on.
I’ve changed bulbs and that’s not the issue
Tried to read about the vacuum and 2 piece axles etc but wondered if there was a switch like a replaced in an 02 TJ?
Confused and any help or insight is appreciated. Thanks

Are you sure your in “4 wheel drive”
The locker on the front axle is vacuum actuated and Meg have a vacuum leak…. If so, you may only be 3-wheel drive. My 89 had all tubes cracked and broken…. I switched to posi-lok.

I’m not 100% positive, but when I’m 4 wheel drive on dry pavement the steering wheel kinda jerks back and forth and grabs like it’s supposed to in 4 wheel drive

The switch that lights the light is built into the vacuum housing. Could be that your vacuum CAD isn’t engaging, or that your switch is dead.
