Hub and 4x4

I am having trouble with my 4x4 engaging and I have some metal on metal noise, from the front drivers side. I am planning to do the assembly replacement and change over to manual hubs...either Warn or Dyna.

My question....is when using the switch for 4x4 in the cab...if hubs locked...will the 4x4 light still come on. I guess what I am asking is what is required to illuminate the "4x4" light on the dash.

Truck is a F350 CC 7.3 4x4 SRW

Thanks in advance guys

The first thing everyone is going to ask for is your year.

Your light will not come on till you turn the switch to 4x4 for either on the fly or the floor shifter.

Sorry. It is 2003. And it is on the fly switch. Originally when I took it to 4x4 it wouldnt work...the motor on the Transfer Case went out...replaced it and it worked a couple times.
Now when I put it in 4x4 it will not switch. Motor again? Is there a cable conversion?

I wish I had anwser for ya on that one. Is there a fuse or relay for those? But someone on here does give it some time.
This is why I'm glade I went with the floor mount.

Good luck and someone on here will answer all ur questions.

Thanks man appreciate it. I originally thought fuse..etc. But got under there with a fluke, and when a buddy turned it to 4x4...I would get voltage. The little motor/gearbox was siezed...and new one I think is bad already...I found the problem. The motor says...Made in Mexico...right on it. Why I am wondering about floor shift convo.

A floor conversion shouldn't be that bad if you found a wrecked one and got the t-case and floor mount. Good luck on what ever you decide.
