Why the warning light?
Expert:  hauto replied 4 years ago.
to tell you what position your transfer case is in.
Customer: replied 4 years ago.
Will the warning Light go off if not it doesn't sound like it should be in the N position.
Expert:  hauto replied 4 years ago.

the vehicle doesn't move in the neutral position. the transfer case has to be engaged for the vehicle to move. either in 2wd, or 4wd option.

Customer: replied 4 years ago.

I guess we are done the car does move in the N position sorry I can't accept your answers because I don't think you are familar with this vechicle.

 

Expert:  hauto replied 4 years ago.
thanks for using me, the vehicle doesn't move in neutral, if the transfer case is in neutral the car will move, I tried genuinely helping you, got all the information you need and that is fine. Do not accept enjoy your car. GOOD LUCK
