Re: 2003 F150 4x4 indicator stays on
This sounds like the indicator switch is either shorted or loose. look on the trans axil and see if you can see a set of wires going into it. next clean them off really well and check for exposed wires. if nothing you might have to get to the switch on the inside. it will take some mechanical know how not to mess anything up.

to have a vibration at idle indicates that it is in the engine area. Check that the harmonic balancer is not failing, viscous fan hub is operational , fan blades are intact, water pump bearings and other bearings are ok. If it is an auto transmission check the flex plate for cracks.
Remember vibrations can also come from engine problem such as random misfires from loose HT leads, water -dirt and low fuel pressures causing injector misfires
an example of this is the old slant 6 valiant (Chrysler) where a plug was weak and misfiring at load under high rpm's and this caused the motor to rock in the engine mounts and indicated as a vibration.
if you have to hold the switch so the high beams stay on then that indicates a bad/worn switch,you could have 2 problems the day time running light relay may have a problem with it.i would first replace the headlight switch at the base of the steering colume as by the info you supply its not changing to the high beam side without holding the switch in position.
I have the same problem. I have had it in the shop on numerous occasions and they couldn't find the problem. Yesterday it stopped working altogether. I'm stuck in 2WD and there is a snow storm arriving tonight.
High temp could be low coolant check your coolant level. Low oil-check for leaks, if no leaks then check for blue smoke out exhaust, if no blue smoke it could just be low. A vehicle will go through a quart of oil between oil changes, even a newer one.
it could be your oxygen sencor went out if the car stubles at higher rpms but most likely your have a problem in your linkage to your transfer case i dont know if this model has electro shift or manual i assume on the fly shifting as most now a days do but poor engine preformance can lead to a mess of troubles when it comes to the tranny and drivetrain
