or jack up all 4 wheels on jack stands and put it in 4wd.
On some newer Jeeps the front drive shaft turns in 2WD also. That is because they don't have locking hubs. I know for a fact that it does on my Rubicon.

Atthehop My light stopped working a long time ago and I like it that way. Been driving 4 wheel drive vehicles for over 20 years and I know when it's engaged and when it's not.

On an '02 it will just tell you part time... Since that's all TJ's have, is part time 4x4. The full time light is there because TJ's and some other model (cherokee's, I think) share the same dash and some have a full time 4x4 option...

briancash1013 Yes I did notice a difference in 4wd when I was leaving work this morning (gravel parking lot) but still no light at all. What does the part time light look like?
09-08-2010 11:57 PM
Minn_wild1 You will notice a difference if the vehicle is in 4wd. Try it on dirt, not asphalt or concrete (if your not going in a straight line).

03 RUBI The light will tell you if you are in 4WD but not if you're in HI or LOW.

briancash1013 It's a 97 2.5L automatic. I bought it 3 weeks ago. As far as I can tell it works, but I've never had anything with 4wd. Any way I can check to see if it's working?
09-08-2010 08:49 PM
Minn_wild1 My part time light isn't working, although the 4wd is... Probably a burned out light in my case. Does your 4wd work?
09-08-2010 08:05 PM
p1zzaman My 04 tj has a light that says 4wd when I'm in 4lo or 4hi if that helps...
09-08-2010 08:03 PM
bobjenkins What jeep? I drove a 01 sport and only part time light. and in my 03 rubicon only 4wd light
