ill be at a dead stop, put it in neutral, switch to 4 wheel high, and the light comes on. turn it one more click to 4 wheel low and it goes off.

hmm....well for one you dont need to go to neutral to go to 4 wheel high......just switch it and it will go ...you can switch going up to 55 mph to 4 wheel high .....as for 4 wheel low you do need to go to neutral .......so my other question is .....is your trans going into low gears in 4 wheel low even though the light doesnt come on

its at the dealer getting head studs and a new turbo right now. ill try it when i get it back. another question i had was when i do a boosted launch my front tires spin as soon as i let off the brake and my rears just follow suit and dont spin at all. im trying to get all of this bs figured out before i go to the track on the 25th.
