Hello and welcome to JustAnswer!

P052 is missing a digit to be a valid code but that wouldn't be related to the service four wheel drive light in any event. This code would have come from the powertrain control module rather than the transfer case control module.

An actual scan tool will be needed to see what codes are setting in the transfer case module. Do you have a scan tool that will communicate with it?
