    What controls the dash light that lights up when you shift into 4h or 4l? Shifter is on the floor of a 2006 dodge 2500 and the light went out on the dash. Still goes in 4h 4l 2wd no problem.:confused:

    i got the same issue- the sensor was $31.

    I haven't installed it yet, but it looks pretty easy. I can get you the part# if you like, i threw it in the glove box.

    Just changed mine out this morning. It was pretty easy once I found where the part was and how to get a socket on it. I had to snake my arm around the driver's side exhaust pipe- good thing it was cold. Crawl under the driver's side, find the floor lever linkage and look back toward the bed for a sensor and wire right on the top of the t-case. You'll need a deep 7/8" socket and a ratchet and about 5 minutes time.

    Cool, thanks for the info. Now I just need to find a warm place to replace mine.
