2002 Dodge Ram 2500 Question: Why does my 4 wheel drive light not come on?

My four wheel drive is working great but the light quit working. Is there a simple switch not "hitting" when I shift?

    Test the circuit at the light connector for power and ground, if power is there replace it, if not trace the circuit.

    I take it that means tearing my dash apart to get to the idiot light, correct? I was hoping there was just a switch under the boot by 4wd shift lever not making contact.

    IT's a process for a DIY'er, If you had the scan tool to be able to read the system, then you could read the data and find your problem. You could have a problem some place else. Was just having you to verify if the light is bad or the power going to it. You can do whatever you want to try.
