So its just the light bothering you, (i ignore mine) I can tell car is in 4wd or not, dont need no stinkn light, so....
is it in 4wd or not? we cant guess that. only you..
the light is hard wired to the transfer case switch
if the switch closes, you are in 4wd, or the switch is bad. end story on silly light. and fuse 10 is the power for that light.
on this car , there is no computer running this light,

im driving on what.? dirt, ice, dry pavement what?

my guess, wild. is car is in 4wd. and you are not on ice or dirt and its stuck, Part time 4wd is for dirt or ice only and will stick.

drive to dirt, or jack up 1 wheel
and shift in to 2H.
fixed now?
light out?

answering for PT 4wd . not
came new with NV231 or 241 and both are part time 4wd, now AWD.

ever read this.

dont do that, posted 100s of time here.

SOURCE: how to replace a jeep tj fuel tank?

I would be really careful with doing this repair as this is very dangerous. You need to relieve the fuel pressure by pulling the fuel pump fuse and starting the truck. Drain the tank with a siphon pump. Remove any exhaust or other parts that are in the way, loosen the straps and support the tank with a floor jack and a block of wood. There are several hoses, and a few wire connectors to disconnect and you may want to replace those hoses while you're down there. Once you put the new tank in, reconnect the electrical and hoses, raise the tank and strap it back up. Put anything else back together you took off the truck.
Personally, I would take this in to get fixed as this is dangerous work (I did mention that). I you do this anyway, use your head and buy a proper container to hold the gas in , as well as jackstands and a class "B" fire extinguisher. Disconnect the battery and don't smoke or use a drop light under the car, and I will not accept responsibility for this.

SOURCE: 2005 Jeep Liberty stuck in Part Time 4wd

I questioned the dealer about my 2005 because mine was disengaging what I thought to be rough compared to what I was used to. They told me that I should shift the vehicle into Neutral before shifting the selector. I have also found that shifting between Reverse and Drive a couple of times while stopped has helped as well. By doing these couple of things, I have had no trouble since. I hope this helps as it might at least be something to try.

SOURCE: Removing doors from Jeep Wrangler - Dome Light Stays On

I have a 97, and my fuse for that is behind the glovebox. Open the box, slide the end of the strap to disconnect it, then remove the box. The fuse is marked. Something like "Dome lt. elim." I think it's located one up from the bottom right. This can actually be done without removing the glove box. For a more permanent fix, has a switch that plugs into the fuse location and mounts under the dash, so you can just flip the switch. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: What does the auto shut off fuse do? 92 Jeep Wrangler.

The auto shutdown relay in your vehicle is controlled by the computer. If the computer does not see a signal from the crank or cam sensor, it will turn off power to the relay which in turn shuts off power to the fuel and ignition system. Unlike those in many passenger vehicles, it's not connected to an impact sensor. (as jeeps are off road vehicles as well as being transportation, if they had an impact sensor, they would be prone to shutdown when traveling over rough off road terrain)
The fuses to the relay are affected by shorting or overload of any components they serve, or by a problem with the relay itself.

My blower quit in my Jeep Wrangler 2001 could it be the HEVAC fuse

If 40A FUSE 1 in the power distribution center and 10A FUSE 8 in the fuse block are OK, the only other possibilities are the blend door actuator, the blower motor relay, the blower motor resistor block, and associated switches.

Why does my jeep wrangler tj when i put the 4h the front tires walks one tire rotation walk and then they stop and then continue like this everytime it walks just on 4h not on 4L? What is wrong?

TJ what year,, be nice to know year.
i guess this is a 4wd question,
and you are running part time 4wd, and does not work on pavement, it is NOT AWD, all wheel drive.
its only FOR, offroad, or driving on ICE< , ONLY
so first tell us what tires are touching>?
or pavement.
here are the words in your missing operators guide
see YJ comments here on command-trac 4wd
here is what happens
if you do it wrong.
the damage, and why.

your car has no center differential or the slip clutch
to better understand, look at rear of transfer case
see that tag, it tells you which system you have
The NP207 transfer case was used only for 1987 and replaced by the NP231.(got 231?)

How do I repair horn on 2005 Jeep Wrangler?

how to fix a horn on the work bench
or how to diagnose a dead horn on car.?

my guess, #2
TJ car.
here is the list;
  1. do not fiddle wires near horn sitting at steering wheel unless you defeat air bags first, per the BOOK "FSM" or u may die.
  2. check the fuses first.
  3. scan the PCM next, got DTC errors ?
  4. read the FSM yet?
here, TJ

the pdf.
chapter 8H> horn
and the schematic there 8w?
8w41-3 see that relay, does it click with button pushed?
key on?
need more ask.
is ground good to horn
did you hot wire horn to see if its really good first
connector pulled?

What fuse is for the lights on the dash for 4 wheel drive on a 2005 Jeep Wrangler X?

so the light is dead. 4wd
shoe drops, is 4wd dead?
that be first.
after all the light can just burn out and is useless anyway
what matters is does it work.

the fsm covers the wiring and all that.

this is it.
all 1600 page.s

did you do the lamp self test yet cluster test

if you read the schematic
you will see the Cluster is a stand alone display with the CAN-BUS network , so if the cluster test passes above , all this is good
the transfer case closes a switch. for 4wd
but the 4wd light is and execption, it is hard wired from the switch to the cluster, seen on page 729(pdf) of the chapter 8w wiring .
so if the self test passes
then the transmission is not getting in to 4wd or the switch is bad
that is why I asked, is 4wd working?

When I put my 2006 jeep wrangler into 4 wheel

which wranger, sport, SE, X, unlimited? what?
my 08 is not awd, cant do what you just did.

first off we dont know what 4wd you have.
nor what mode you picked,
nor if on dirt, ice or snow or dry pavement.

if you are using part time 4wd on dry pavement then this is totally wrong.
the glove box operators guide shows all fuses, lost that
why not get one and read the 4wd pages too.

for sure we need the transfer case model number
did you know the operators guide is different for each

Rock-trac? NV241
Command-Trac 231 transfer case

my guess its just 231 case and is part time 4wd
ill quote the manual
Command-Trac should only be driven in 4WD on low-traction surfaces due to the front and rear axles being locked together (no differential action in the transfer case). Driving in 4WD on dry pavement causes excessive wheel and drivetrain wear. Four-wheel modes are most commonly used for wet/slick surfaces or extreme weather conditions (rain, snow, etc.) (4H), towing (N), and off-road activities (4L).

here is what can happen not reading the opr guide

the are exceptions on most jeeps
AWD with center differential
or with a vicious coupling added to end the above damage.
you have neither.
