    If 4 lo works but no light then who cares?

    In all actuality, the 4 lo light in my old TJ never came on even straight from the factory. I think the guage cluster may have been used in multiple Jeeps and that light may have been used for rigs with full time.

    MaineJeepah....You have a TJ and they have the NP231 t-case. If your 4lo works ok and it is just the light that does not go on then it is probably your t-case position sensor. On the NP231 t-case there is a wireing harness that splits into 2 sensors going into the t-case. The top sensor is the t-case position sensor and the bottom sensor is the output speed sensor. It is on the drivers side of the t-case if you are under the jeep looking at the t-case. At least that is how it shows it in the 05 FSM but I would imagine that it is the same for all years for the TJ. They all use the same t-case.

    So it doesnt matter aslong as the 4-lo works..?
