You can take the bulbs out and wash them out from the holes, a good way of preventing this is to use silicone around the bulb connector but then you have to clean all of the silicone off when replacing the bulbs

1999 ford ranger won't shift from 2 wd to 4wd it is automatic lock in by a knob turning inside

The shift motor on the transfer case is probably full of mud and dirt and is frozen up. Tap gently with a light hammer, or better to use the end of the handle, while someone moves the selector switch back and forth. Common problem, once it shifts, you can tear it down and clean it, but it is complicated. Probably better to replace it, once you have verified that is the problem.

Mudding 4x4

This is because the 1500 series is considered light duty regardless of whether it is 2x4 or 4x4. When you add the large mud tires and wheels to the vehicle, that alone stresses the hubs and transfer cases. Add in the overevvving and sudden start-stop jolts of mudding, and you have all the making of drive train failure. If you want to play big boy games, get big boy equipment.

The light is giving power to the actuator which is trying to work. Check that the lever is not jammed from mud ,rust etc and that the lever moves freely.

No fire

I have a '93 Ranger 4.0 4x4 and had the same problem before. Make sure the distributer isnt wet and make sure all connections are tight. I took mine through some mud, got the distributer wet, and it died and wouldnt start until it dried. Hope this helped!

Sounds like you either broke (small crack) or may be smashed/crimped a fuel line. White smoke in diesels means that there is not enough fuel or that there is air getting in the line some how. Don't confuse white smoke with a blown gasket, this would smoke all the time

I just went out in the mud in 4wd and had to get on it to get out of a puddle. Now where my 4wd drive line connects to my transfer case is smoking what could be wrong?

Does the transfer case work? Can you 4wheel? If you answered yes then wet mud and hot metal mean smoke.
If case doesn't work you blew it out.

Green indicator light on 1998 kia sportage

That light sounds like a differential lock or 4-wheel drive. This is usually found in 4-wheel drive and all-wheel drive vehicles. Being the light is "GREEN" and not amber or red tells me that it's not an abnormal problem.

Look around your dashboard or gearshifter for a button labeled 4x4 HI, 4x4 LO, 4x2 HI. sport/off road button, or a second, smaller shifter. Switch them around a little, and if it is a 4x4 selector, be sure when you drive on paved roads to have it set to 4x2 HI. 4x4 HI should only be used if you get stuck to help you get out (snow/mud) and 4x4 LO is only for off road driving (trail blazing/rock climbing/4-wheeling/mud bogging,etc.)

Also, check for any switches labled "DIFF LOCK" or 'AXLE LOCK". In most cars a green light is normal operations.

I hope I could help you find a solution to your problem.
