4wd light slow to come on- sign of future problem or normal?

When i engage 4wd it takes close to a minute for the light to come on to show its engaged. The 4wd IS working but is the slowness normal or is it a sign the actuator (i think thats what its called) may be ready to go?

Well the light is triggered by the vacuum motor so if it's taking that long to light up then the vacuum motor may be going. Have you checked for any vacuum leaks?

No, do you know where the line is that controls it...
