'93 Jeep Gr. Cherokee 4x4 switch warning

I have a great Jeep in general, but I have a warning light coming up that the 4x4 switch needs serviced. What the *** is that?

This switch does not switch the vehicle from 2 wheel to 4 wheel drive. Grand cherokee have a manual shifter for that. The 4x4 switch is on top of the transfer case and tells the driver information display what 4 wheel drive mode the Jeep is in. ex..if you have selectrac, in 2 wheel the rear wheels on the display will light up, in 4 wheel all 4 wheels will light up, in 4 wheel low it will have the word low lit up in yellow. This is the only purpose for this switch and a bad one will not affect the functioning of the 4 wheel drive. Check out Rockauto.com and a new one can be purchased for about 35 dollars. If you call the dealership and ask for a 4 wheel drive switch, they will have no clue what you are talking about. The actual name is " 4WD indicator light switch"

Update on this. I have recently had the same problem with my grand cherokee. I discovered that the problem was actually a short in the driver information display. I had to have the display repaired by an automotive electronics repair shop. This also solved the problem with the display saying "check oil level" even with the oil was full

93 jeep grand cherokee has error msg of 'service 4wd switch'.. need to know where switch is located and see if vacuum line is missing...


There's a lever in the floor that switchs to 4X4 and out under the cover is the switch connected to the lever and it's got a drink or something poured in it and it's dirty. A new switch is fast and sure but cleaning carefully with soapy water then clear water then dry out with compressed air and reinstall may work too you'll save the price of the new switch and the work is about the same.

"coolant sensor bad" warning comes on all the time.


The jeep should have 2 coolant sensors, one guage sensor and one switch. Try replacing the other one that you haven't already replaced.
