Hi everyone, I have not logged in for some time because my wonderful Jeep is so trouble free, until now. I had just said to my wife how much I loved my Jeep because it is not fussy, just runs and does what it is supposed to do.
Yesterday my wife and I had a little mountain adventure that involved getting (almost) stuck in snow. To get free I had to "exercise" the Rubi pretty hard. Not abuse , but in and out of 4hi and 4lo, as well as in and out of differential lockup. This went on for several miles until we got clear.
When I got home and started to turn into my drive I realized that it was in 4wd. The dash indicator was not on, so I had not noticed it on the road until I turned sharp. As I fiddled with the lever I could get it to intermittently go on , but it would not stay. This also means I can't access the locking differentials, since they will only operate in 4wh-lo.
So I put it on the rack and tried to adjust the shift linkage, thinking that maybe I had been a little rougher than I intended. Now I have no 4x4 light at all. Now this may be a dumb question, but where is the switch that talks to the indicator? The Chilton manual seems to be useless. It only shows that there is one, not where it is or how to check it.
I am sorry if this has been answered before, I couldn't seem to find it. Thank you for any help you can give. I still love my 2004 Rubi, but I may not brag on it as much. ( where it can hear me)
