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.

A recent Gallup public opinion poll shows the NRA, at 58% approval, has a higher approval rating than either Hillary Clinton or Barack Obama.

Tim is correct, most likeley the switch that goes into the T case I've had to replace many of them. DO NOT BUY CHEAP ONES go to to the dealer or Nappa,the ones from Nappa work the a Zones and others do not.
