Hello. The hold light is on because there are trouble codes in the system. You need to find out what they are before you can diagnose the issue. If you do not have a code reader, usually parts stores will be able to read the codes for you. Are you able to drive the vehicle?

Ok good, if you are able to drive it and it goes into 4wd its probably not a big issue. When you find out what the codes are let me know and I can further assist you in diagnosing it.
