4wd Light ?

Over the past month my 4wd light has stopped working. The 4wd is still working fine just not the light. If I give it some gas the light goes on but only for a short time. Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't the light operate by a vaccum? Is it just a vacuum leak? Its obviously not anything serious just something that annoys me.

If I'm not mistaken, the switch that sends the signal to the light panel is located just above the vacuum actuator on the right side of the front axle. I think this is right, b/c I replaced this switch when I installed a posi-lok.

But think, it could be much worse. The light could work just fine, but the 4wd could be broken! This was a problem that I recently had with my YJ.
