Truck thinks it is in 4 Low (low range light stuck on)

So I dot hit tonight. Parked, someone ran into me.

Pulled it into 4 low and backed out from over him, and pulled out and everything looked fine. Now, the truck thinks its in 4 Low when in 2WD it will shift into OD at like 15MPH... Jiggled the wires, found nothing...

Any input?

Well it seems to have fixed itself. So I wont get to try that. Im gonna get all the fluids changed when I get back (in a month) and pull the sensor out and see if it needs cleaning.

The switches do go bad. I did have to replace mine a couple years ago.

After I saw the exploded parts view, it looks pretty simple. The shift shaft just presses the switch down.. I haven't changed the t-case oil since i bought it, so i think its time for that.
But When i get time, ill be pulling the sensor out and seeing if it looks bad (corrosion, buildup, bent etc.)
