Illumination of the Lamp indicates a problem with the 4wd system. There will probably be trouble codes set in transfer case controller. These codes are needed to aid diagnosis. The codes should not be cleared before testing is performed, and cannot be cleared without proper test equipment. You should have your regular technician test it for you before the problem gets worse.

Good luck!
