4WD light indicator

so,I can feel getting into 4WD ,but the light doesn't come on (used to).
When I jump the wires by the axle,it does come on.So,I'm thinking that the activation switch is bad/stuck/
Anything to be aware of before I unscrew it?
Thanks.

could be the vacuum actuator itself is kaput too... common occurrence, in which case you're not really in 4wd at that point, even though your T-case says otherwise

This. But no, you shouldn't have any problems from just unscrewing it.
