Part Time 4WD????
So my 4WD indicator light has never worked, no big deal..but today I went to shift into 4HI and it was being difficult and out of no where the PART TIME light came on, any ideas what is going on?

The Wrangler's 4x4 system is strictly and purely a part-time 4x4 system. That the part-time 4x4 light came on just means it worked as it is supposed to. If you also noticed a full-time 4x4 location on the dash, that is because the same instrument cluster was also used on the XJ Cherokee which had an optional full-time 4x4 system available at extra cost in addition to its base part-time 4x4 system.

Part-time 4x4 is designed solely for offroad use, full-time 4x4 means it is suitable for use on paved roads.

My 4wd indicator light stopped working for a while - I gave the wiring warness under the dash a wiggle and it started working again - maybe we both had a loose connection.

Good info and thank you, I was just confused because when my T-Case was replaced the mechanic told me the switch on the T-case was "missing" and needed to be bought. It is becoming more and more apparent that this guy screwed me over with 1300 dollars of labor to put in my T-Case and than found more and more "wrong" with the Jeep...
