I have a 2004 Rocky Mtn. edition w/ automatic and I had to use 4-wheel drive for the first time since I bought it back in December in order to get out of the sand here at the beach. I droped the gear shift back to 2 Hi once I got out but the indicator light says I am still in "part time" mode. This happened once before when I bought it and the dealership some how disengaged it for me without me being present to see how to do it. Can anyone tell me if I should ignore it or seek professional help. This is obviously my first 4-wheel drive vehicle. What should I do. I don't need to be in 4-wheel drive when I am just running around town.
If the lever is in 2-Hi then it is in 2-Hi.
The indicator lamp is just controlled by the transfer case position sensor, which has been know to go bad. Don't pay attention to the indicator lamp, just the position of the lever.
I'm not sure on the cost of the position sensor, but it is easy to replace. Top, back left of the transfer case.
