Back truck up about 20 feet - with switch set to 2wd.

Lack of system ‘exercise’ is the major cause of malfunctions - using 4x4 occasionally while driving on straight roadways (dry pavement) or off road will help keep components functioning.

Not recommended to use 4x4 - turning vehicle on dry pavement .. While operating vehicle off paved roadways - 4x4 components binding is greatly reduced.

The owners manual will be very helpful in these cases!

Hello, this is also a possible concern with the mechanism that shifts the transfer case. If the light does not turn off indicating "4X4 High", you could have an issue with the transfer case motor, or the controls for the motor.

Pushrod's suggestion is to release the "automatic hubs" in the front, and is also important.
