You need to have the System scanned prior to any repairs:

Illumination of the Lamp indicates a problem with the drive system.
There will probably be a Transfer Case Code set to aid in diagnostics.

The only way to get the light to go off is to clear Transfer Case codes.
This light can NOT be shut off or reset any other way.
Transfer Case codes should be read and repaired before clearing them.

Reply to Lurch's Post: I replaced a tire on the ruck with a new one could that have something to do with it? It won't shift into 4WD.
Front or rear?

Reply to Lurch's Post: Right Rear
I would not think tire change would induce message, unless it was a lot different size or had a bad vibration.
Could just be a coincidence.
Have the vehicle scanned for ALL Trouble Codes first, then you will have a better idea of how to proceed.
