    Greets,

    Press hard around the switch site and see if they light up. A few of us have had loose contacts on the back side of the plugin.

    Greets,

    I pulled the dash to get to it. Not to hard (at least on my 99).

    My switch works fine, but it has a hole in it. I think the previous owner always pushed on it too hard and broke through the lit up part of the switch, where the plastic is thinnest. I plan to find a new one and just swap it out. You should consider doing the same if it's not a loose connection. At least the 4WD works. A switch is a cheaper fix than a solenoid or a transfer case!
    I like you.
