does all models have the part time 4x4 light? in sunlight i can see that it has it on my dash but every since i got my XJ it has not worked. do they have a low range light? my XJ is a 97. what are the most common reasons for it not work besides the light burnt out? thumbs

I think all of them have some sort of 4x4 light but not all models are the same. I think all mine does is tell you when it's in 4x4 whether it be high or low. There is a switch in the transfer case that is probably sticking in the normal 2 wheel drive mode. Get a manual to locate where it is and trouble shoot the issue. It may just need lubing. I had a Grand that would stick when I first got it because the guy before me didn't use it much. It cleared itself with some use.

As far as the lights, the dash has accomadations for two:

A) Part Time 4WD - Comes on whenever the t-case is in 4Hi or 4 Low. Applies to all t-cases.
B) Full Time 4WD - Comes on whenever the t-case is in Full Time 4WD. Only works on models equipped with NP228/NP229 & NP242 t-cases.
