my 4WD light is always on. never turns off
My 4WD indicator dash light is always on. weather im n 4wd or not. really confusing me. anyone had these problems or know what i should look for?

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 know it is not in 4wd for a fact

I found this other thread

the person reported that their LED was burnt out. it might have some useful information for you.
