lights will do the following:

1. The current position indicator light will turn OFF. 2. The selected position indicator light will flash until the
transfer case completes the shift.
3. When the shift is complete, the indicator light for the
selected position will stop flashing and remain ON.
If one or more shift conditions are not met:

2. The newly selected position indicator light will continue

Yeah and I always thought manual t case were laughable when dealers ordered them these days, boy was I wrong. Yeah I'll have to try putting it in 4LO haven't done that yet. But did try stopping and going in reverse and all of that. 4 wheel works just fine. Talked to a dealer earlier today he said there has been some problems like that, some wiring and sensor problems.
yeah mine used to do that. I had to take it in and the dealer just reset the 4 wheel drive module? Where ever that is. The first stealer said they had to order a new one, but that's a whole other story. I ended up taking it somewhere else and I got it back the same day. My problem was when I had it in 4x4 the light just flashed. It wasn't engaging. So I don't know if it's the exact same problem, but it seems related. Good luck.
