Hello and welcome to JustAnswer! I apologize for the extended wait time you experienced, I've only just come online now and would like to assist you with your question.

There are quite a few things that could be going on. Cost to repair the problem will vary depending on what is wrong. The service four wheel drive warning is on because the TIPM has seen a failure in the system that will prevent proper operation and has set fault codes.

It will require some electrical testing to determine exactly what is wrong. The problem could be with the switch itself, the TIPM, wiring; the most common cause would be the transfer case motor itself. The first step in diagnosing the problem will be to use a scan tool to see what fault codes have set and then testing can be done from there based on the findings.

My goal is to give you the best experience possible! I hope I have earned a 5 star rating! Please remember to rate my service by selecting the 5 stars at the top of the screen before you leave today. If you need more assistance, please use the reply box and let me know.
