No 4WD and no dash light
I'm sure this is related to the issue I had this summer when my trans/transfer case wiring harness dropped onto the front drive line while my hubs were stuck and the harness got torn up. Yeah it was a ****ty day. Anyway I cleaned it up, soldered in, and shrink tubed the wiring repairs. I'm feeling confident that the wiring repairs are good. It was summer and I didn't think about checking the 4wd.
Well now it's snowing and I find that I have no 4wd. No light on the dash even. I understand about checking the t-case motor for voltage, but if that's the problem should the dash light still work? I replaced the two under-hood relays in July, and the fuse is good. But some of the wires did short out to the truck. Maybe the wires shorting out fried a relay, the motor, or the GEM? Just wondering before I start replacing stuff, what component could have gone bad that would make the dash light not work?
Was going to go hunting this weekend too. Might have to skip that.
