They've checked the light bulb and switch?

When you start your truck does the 4x4 light come on for a second? If not the light is not working, all the dash lights are so post to light for one second during start up.

I have the same issue with mine. 2004 SC/LB 5 speed manual + manual stick 4WD. It worked when I got it, then stopped. Dealer replaced lights and sensor, still doesn't work. They have no clue.

Dipsticks are supposed to be in our trucks not working on them!

As I am having the same issue. At least they did not tell me that there is no light on a 2004. And mine did work for a while. It's easy enough to look down and see that it is not in 4WD, but I'm getting old, and sometimes I forget to look down. Now if I could only remember where I put that Ginko Biloba.

Finally check mine since it hasn't been in 4x4 forever. The light does not light up when I start, but it does light up when shifted into 4x4.

I guess that you are correct. He has the manual 4WD like me. Thanks for pointing that out and getting me to reread the post. Brain fart I guess. Part of getting old.
