Default 4x4 Light Wont Turn On

What would cause the 4x4 light to stay off when engaged in 4 wheel drive? It seems like the truck is in 4wd but the light never comes on, same for hi and low.

I've seen a few others talking about this, if you are sure the 4x4 is properly engaging then either the light is burned out in the dash, or the switch on the cad that controls the dash light is failed

the light only comes on if the front axle engauges. If this does not happen the light will not come on. Check the vacuum hoses going to the cad. They run to the t case along the pass side frame rail.
