Not sure about the fuel gauge, but I am willing to bet you need a new 4wd switch. This is pretty common on these trucks.

The fuel thing might be a bad cluster. This is also a common problem on the gm vehicles. I have 2 silverados, an impala and a malibu and they all have had funky problems with the clusters.

Which transfer case does your truck have ?
SERVICE 4WD
Refer to
?€¢
Transfer Case Description and Operation for the Transfer Case - NVG 149-NP3


?€¢
Transfer Case Description and Operation for the Transfer Case - NVG 246-NP8


?€¢
Transfer Case Description and Operation for the Transfer Case - NVG 261-NP2


?€¢
Transfer Case Description and Operation for the Transfer Case - NVG 263-NP1


The SERVICE 4WD indicator is located in the instrument panel cluster (IPC), and shares the common power and ground of the IPC. The transfer case shift control module controls the service indicator by sending the IPC a Class 2 message. This indicator may be controlled with the scan tool using the IPC device controls.
You should take it to the dealer an have it checked for DTC'S -diagnostic trouble codes

Imitsubishi shogun engaging 4 wheel drive


no year?
never drive, part time 4wd on pavement, unless said pavement
is ice or snow covered.
only AWD allows pavement (tires direct upon) driviing.
part time 4wd is for offroad , off pavement driving,
this is because 4wd has no center differential.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four-wheel_drive

and with out such, winds up the drive line fast. and breaks it.

wiki states (no year stated by you)
Part-time four-wheel drive was standard on all models. to 1991
then came
ActivTrak 4WD
cept
4H (high-range full time four-wheel drive), 4HLc (high-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential) and 4LLc (low-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential
so do not use LOCKED on pavement. on active track. only 4H
the wiki states the Super-select is retained 2006 to present.
Super-Select 4WD II

read the glove box manual under 4wd

I got 2005 grand Cherokee 5.7 hemi I did the service 4wd I just need to know is there a way to reset the worning that always on the screen (even when I'll change it to somthing else it come back).


if the message "service 4wd" is appearing than there is a problem with the four wheel drive system. It does not mean the four wheel drive needs to be serviced (fluids changed, etc.).

Did you make any repairs to the four wheel drive system?

Service 4WD light illuminates on the dashboard message box


this is most commonly a electrical problem, does the speedometer read out correctly? if not it may be depending on if this is a Autotrak model, one f the two speeed sensors, or the acuator on the front diff, put the truck in 4wd, check the front dirveline to make sure it is engaing, if not your problem is in the t-case, if it does then move to the tires, if they are not engaged you have a problem with the actuator.

in most cases i have found the actuall 2wd 4wd switch to be the problem if you find that the switch is acting slow or you need to select the gear a few times before it shifts, then replace it these are very faulty

4WD SERVICE


it means it is time to change the fluid in your transmission, and 4wd transfercase.
as well fluid levels in differential should be checked as well as greasing anything that can be greased.
that signal is tripped either from mileage reaching a certain amount, or a sensor giving poor results (usually low or contaminated fluids)
