    Sounds to me like your lenses on the dash cluster are switched around, if I'm not mistaken the service eng is on the right and the 4x is on the left in the speedo gage bottom. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Yup the SES is on the lower right of the speedo. Wonder how that would get switched around? /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif So when something is wrong with your engine your 4x4 light will come on? Probably similar plugs on the back of the cluster. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    LOL, thats what I was thinking /forums/images/graemlins/rotfl.gif

    I know on the NBS push button trucks they have a service 4wd light that comes on when theres a problem with the 4wd electronics, but Im clueless about this. I did replace all the bulbs on the cluster, maybe I forked something up /forums/images/graemlins/confused.gif
