Do you also get an ABS light when the 4wd malfunction light comes on?

The rear wheel speed sensors on this truck tend to go out and cause a very similar condition to the one you describe, but it is usually accompanied by an ABS light also.

No abs light or other lights. Just the 4wd malfunction light

Have you had the system checked for trouble codes? Toyota lists a number of codes that should be present with a transfer case malfunction.

Here is Toyota's shift inspection procedure. They suggest you do this to make sure the T-case motor isn't just stuck before performing repairs.

No codes come up and it's a Nissan not a Toyota

I'm sorry. I'm helping another guy with a t-case problem on his toyota also. The info I sent is from Nissan, I just said toyota. Sorry!
