Hey there, thanks for the question.

If the 4wd light is on AND the battery light, then we need to consider a battery or charging issue before we do anything else. It's not uncommon for a weak or bad battery to cause the 4wd indicator to dissapear.

Doy ou have a voltmeter handy where we could do a simple test?
