Service 4wd light on; w4d does not work at all

To start with, a basic engine computer code reader will not connect to the body computer which is why they are not getting any codes.
The 4wd lights will not come on as long as the warning light is on, the system is disabled until it is fixed.
You may need someone with a professional scanner to connect to the body computer.

4wd flashing 2000 jimmy

Usually the flashing light means the 4wd system is disabled and can not be used.
In most cases you would need to get the body computer scanned for trouble codes.

99 Grand Cherokee. Started with locking or binding with loud clunks. After long drive, rear diff was smoking and was replaced. Just drove it and after shifting into all time 4wd and then back to 2wd did it...

Sounds like a bad transfer case. Generally what you experienced is caused by a tire mis-match but can also happen by itself sometimes. GC's use a fluid coupler that is supposed to engage 4wd when tires begin to slip. (coupler is pretty much the same as the mechanical clutch unit on your fan, only larger) If the coupler fails, symptoms like yours happen.

How to disable the daytime running lights DRL in my vw rabbit 2007

There is no way to disable the daytime running lamps on a volkswagen, because the fuse is tied into other items that are vital to the functioning of the car. The only way to turn them off temporarily is to engage the hand brake.

Want to disable auto 4wd to check if auto 4wd is on all the time reason vibs in wheel and seat above 40mph 1997 ford explorer

Do this first
Usely the vibs you are getting could be from wheel balance wore out wheel bearings or flat spots on tires.
Only do this after you checked the front end.
(You could remove the fuse under the dash but the fuse that runs the 4wd also more than likely runs other things in the vehical. Or you can dissconnect at the transfer case would be .)

Transmission shifting into various 4wd modes on its on

It is most likely the sensor attached to the 4wd motor that tells the computer what position the motor is in. The easiest thing you can try on your own is to dis-connect the neg term on your battery, wait a few mins and re-connect the battery. This re-boot procedure may fix it permanently, temporarily or not at all but its worth a shot since it wont cost you a cent.
