There are sensors in modern AWD / 4WD vehicles and if it is truly disengaged, is probably just a bad sensor. Anyway, without the year, make and model vehicle - it's hard to get into specifics or help from someone that knows which vehicle you're asking abut.

It is hard to tell if the vehicle is really in 4 WD mode by driveing it on a vehicle like this .
The way to tell for sure is to get all 4 wheels of the ground at the same time with the engine running and then shift in and out of 4 wheel drive .Witch is a limited slip system so is actualy 1 wheel drive at a time for the front and rear at the same time witch ever wheel slips front or rear the other one will go into a locked drive mode.
Get it off the ground then it will be easy to tell if it works or a light bulb has burnt out

Electronic sensor may be bad, or may be just dirty or sending a signal that is not being correctly read or received at the "light"

Select 2wd,4wd dash light is still illuminated,does this mean it is still in 4wd,if so what am I to look for ?


On four wheel drives turning is a real indication when four wheel is still on...4wheel is a bit more sluggish on turns. But, im a bit old school and am thinking trucks since nothing is listed. Most electric transfer cases have an actuator than engages an disengages electronically, but sometimes they get sticky and require a love tap or driving in reverse to disengage the actuator... you could also suspend the vehicle in the air and engage an disengage a see what is happening too.

2005 nissan armada 4wd shift indicator light doesnt go off


If after watching the following video http://youtu.be/O3875kUfoPc and or consulting with your car's owner's manual to make sure you are going through the proper procedures to disengage the four wheel wheel drive system, you most likely have a mechanical problem...like in the transfer case shift module; bad dash sensor; wheel sensor, or a blown fuse to the switch that controls the electrical impulse to the 4X4 actuator; or a bad seal within the wheel hub, etc.

Front wheels will not disengage EVER when I use four wheel drives


This happens on these two to four wheel drive units, you need to get it to a garage that knows how to unlock or disengage the four wheel drive , doing this on your own will cause more damage.

I have a 1997 isuzu rodeo the 4x4 indicator light stays on. Transfer case is working properly. SUV is definitely in 2 wheel drive. Is this a vacuum related problem


If you jack up the tires on the front end and manually rotate the left side of front wheel, the right side should remain stationary if the 4-wheel drive is truly disengaged.

Once you confirm that, check that the connector to the actuator switch is ok. It's mounted on the front axle on the drivers side. Check all the vacuum hoses attached to it as well.

How do i use the "Hi/Lo" "shifter" in this 1991 Toyota Land Cruiser, what is it for? Why would i change it? I have driven this car for a long time now and never use i do i need to?


The hi/lo is a function of the 4 wheel drive on the vehicle. The hi ratio would be used when negotiating sand or mud for instance and the lo for steep inclines where more power is needed. This is like having a gear with better pulling ability than first gear. You will find driving in 2nd gear lo will give you the same speed as 1st gear high.
Do not engage the four wheel drive system when driving on hard surfaces ie tarmac or concrete. Use it only on surfaces where additional traction may be needed. It is a good idea to use the 4 wheel drive system at least once a month in order to lubricate those parts of the 4 wheel drive system that would otherwise be "dormant" when in 2 wheel drive.
If you have diff lock funtion on the vehicle it would be a good to idea to engege this as well but once again only on a soft surface. The reason being that the centre diff lock tends to bind and stay engaged due to it not being properly lubricated.
If it does bind(dash indicator stays lit) find a patch of grass or sand, engage reverse and drive a couple feet. If this does not disengage the lock turn the steering fully left or right and drive in a circle. This should then disengage the difflock.
