4WD Indicator lights

Both my 4WD indicator lights on my dash stopped working. Does anyone have any suggestions as to why or where the switch is for them?

There is a switch on the transfer case for the dash lights. 1997-2001 you can unplug the wire harness and use a paperclip to connect the two pins. If the dash light comes on, the wire harness and light bulbs are good, and you probably need a new T-case switch.
