There's a switch on top of the transfer that lets your computer know your in 4lo. The switch is about 85$.The wires or connector may only be loose .The only other easy thing to check is the fluid level in the transfer case.Low level will set the message as well.

My 95 grand cherokee says service 4wd switch is this a problem

The 4wd switch is the indicator that tells the VIC (vehicle information center) if you are in 4 low or 4 high. Have it replaced, but first check wiring, that more likely the wiring from the switch to the VIC is damaged.

you could have a vacuum leak which would enable the transfer case to not recognize that the switch has been activated.

Keep us updated.

SERVICE 4 WD SWITCH Apears on information center screen. Where is this switch and what is it?

The switch is located on top of the tranfer case which is behind the trans. The switch is used for the transfer case to apply or disigage the input clutch under certain offroad uses. I have seen many 4wd switchs fail on those cars before.

No display on service center display

If it is working it will tell you if any doors, hatches are open, it tells you when your next service is due, If you are in 4WD or not. On the all time 4wd it tells you if you are in "Lo" . Mostly shows date and time. Check your grounds and power source fuses. It may need replaced. Also if something is wrong it makes a really annoying sound and it desplays a message. " Servire 4WD Switch" for exaple. I hope that helps . I just bought mine and just trying to fix it up for hunting. good luck Alex
