Hey there, do you know what code you have?

Code?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
It flashed 9 times
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
Hey sorry I'm back.
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
What do you mean flashed 9 times? Is there a manual sequence to check faults outside of a scan tool?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Now light went out when u give it gas but comes right back on when u let off gas. Don't make noise unless u let off gas

Thanks, ***** ***** the ATP and 4lo lights?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
ATP no comes on sometimes but we are driving right now
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
Ok the reason I ask is because the ATP switches are common to go out on these trucks and cause the 4wd to malfunction as well. If the ATP light is not coming on then it's likely the shift switch or 4lo switch malfunctioning.
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
Have you tried stopping the truck, putting it I neutral and shifting to 4lo at all?
Customer: replied 1 year ago.
Yes makes same noise when u go in reverse also makes same noise as when u drive
Expert:  Jake replied 1 year ago.
Yea if it's making a noise and not just the lights then it's not the ATP switch, it's going to be related to the 4wd shift switch or the transfer case more likely.
