you should find out if you are actually in 4wd all the time or if the indicator is just stuck somehow. one is a much more serous problem than the other. take it out of 4wd, get on pavement and turn hard to left or right. give it some gas and see if you feel the jeep "hopping" sort of... basically the rear wheels pushing forward when the front wheels are pulling to the side.

I found this other thread
" http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/test...4wd-68024.html "
the person reported that their LED was burnt out. it might have some useful information for you.
