try manually locking the hubs, check for vacuum problems. does the light on your dash come on? Do you have any heater control issues?

do you have manual hubs? or is it that the transfer case isn't kicking in? have fun in the snow haha they are calling for close to 3ft here . tow haul is really nice in the snow just tap the brake and it will down shift with alot of engine braking.

maybe its just the light malfunctioning. Have you tested to see if its in 4x4?
24" of snow! Be sure to manually lock the hubs for true 4 wheel drive, but with that much snow clearance is going to be the issue and 4 wheel drive isn't going to help much. Better get where you want to be for awhile and camp.

Like the guys are saying - manually lock 'em - then turn your wheels on pavement all the way one direction with the break on, EASE off and it should chatter. If it doesn't.....well on of the Tech's on here will need to help ya cuz you have problems.
