Inoperative part-time 4WD light
Around February 2007, I was
driving the KJ home from work. It was an icy morning, so I reached down and put
it in 4Hi. A bit farther down the road conditions improved, so being the miserly
sorta guy I am, I clicked it back into 2WD. I then noticed that the "part time"
light on the dash was still on. So I put it back into 4Hi, and the light went
out. Hmm... Since I remembered to purchase an extended warranty on Hi Ho Silver
when we bought her, I took her up to Beaver County Jeep to have it taken care
of. A $100 and an hour later, she was working properly again. Turns out it was
the switch on the NV231 that operates the light had gone bad. Something to think
about on the Monster, since they have the same transfer case.
Moral of the story? Extended
warranties are good when your vehicle breaks on a day that it's 5 degrees out.
