    Welcome to the site! Can you give more details, such as, is this happening when off road, all the time, etc. ?

    It happens sporadically. I can be stopped and it comes on, I can start it and it will come on. I have put it into 4x4 and back into 2 wheel and it will come on. It's never a set thing that sets it off. I hope that makes sense

    welcome to the club.... :jeepwave: hope we can help'

    OK no 4wd light BUT you can feel it engage 4wd.
    Likely its a switch/sensor is acting up, the vehicle is 15 years old... age and sticking from T'case fluid getting sticky.
    Do not want to put you off with TMI - there are 3 transfer cases NV147, NV242, NV247, if you can tell me I will post a diagram to assist. OR let me know and maybe I can think of a way to ID which case.

    It should be an easy repair.

    Trout season is why its 4wd.

    Attachment shows atypical NV T'case location of switch
