I dont have a pic but the same thing happened on my 05 KJ. The orange lensfilter attaches to the shift lever and moves when you select a gear to show the gear you are in. not sure if you can reattach it or not i just took it out and payed attention to what gear i was in.
i seen this was kinda old just seeing if any body has any ideas on this
I ended up replacing the bulb. Got one at the dealership. As far as the orange indicator piece that broke off I super glued it back on and it has been holding up now since this post. You just want to make sure you dont glue it down so you cant shift anymore.
You dont have to remove the console just pop out the fake chrome cover and carefully unsnap the black cover. Then just remove all the little pieces there is like a paper piece then a clear plastic piece that is over the bulb. I found a 2721 bulb seemed to work fine. Dealer in my town said they only sold the entire shifter...lol Its a little wedge bulb just lift it straight out. Replace. All happy again. Zen
was off and the car was locked in park but the indicator light showed it in Drive. It would not move out of park. I had to have it dragged from my garage and towed to the dealer (25K so it was under warranty). Theyve had it two days now. They say they think there is a ground short somewhere and have torn apart the whole dash and have found nothing. Of course Im doing without a car now since jeep
The indicator is controlled by an electromechanical switch on the transfer case itself. Its likely to fail and get stuck on a single position (usually off) however its unlikely to falsely indicate multiple positions. If the indicator light is properly transitioning between the positions with the shifter id wouldnt think that it was failed. What is giving you the impression that the transfer case itself

Its pretty apparent when the vehicle is stuck
my guess is u were switching around too much between 4lo 4hi and 2hi if it hasnt corrected itself by now- take it to the dealer but i would have shut the car off - put it back in 2hi until it read the right way- unless u were in really heavy snow traveling like under 15mph i woulndt use 4lo- just my opinion but i dont use 4lo unless im trying to get thru my driveway after it was plowed 4lo really revs

This is not my first time converting a vehicle to 4x4. The worst one was the 04 Toyota 4Runner because it had a separate ECU for the 4x4 and the traction controller. Also the dash cluster is not only missing the lights for DAC 4x4 4LO and center Diff Lock they 2wd cluster has a much different configuration. It was not as easy swap but with a good schematic and a real ECUECM pin out you can make everything work like factory. Fact is with the exception of the VIN you cannot tell my 4Runner was ever 2wd. In a 03 the speedoodo wire is the same for a 2wd and 4wdall ran by the rear diff speed sensor and its located in the same spot be it 2wd or 4wd.The KJmodel year 02 through 07never used a shift motor on the t-case as both the 231 and 242 t-cases are cable shifted with a manual lever.The 08 KKs use a electronically shifted t-case.You can add all the wires you want without the correct programming the lights will not work and they are in the cluster alreadyhaving the PCMBCM programmed for 4wd does alot more then just turn on some cluster lights also.The nuts on the ends of the CV axles are not spindle nutsno spindles on any KJ unless you did a SFA swapthe KJ uses unit bearings thus no spindles. It aint no toyotaanything you did on a toyota will not hold true on a jeep.

As you said it comes out easily that one screw at the bottom near the lighter then gently pry the alumimum cover out from the bottom up on each side the 4 pressure clips easily let it come out with no damage to cosmetics as long as youre careful. I pulled the fuse (21 in my 05) first of course. Had to have the key in and shifter (auto) down in 1st to give clearance for the thing to pull out then to get it out enough to get radio out I unplugged the left most plug (HVAC) and with a twist the unit layed down out of my way. Then 4 screws and the RBQ Radio6 CD Changer came out.. and I could see its hosed stuff does not look right in there CD in cockwise... so I just put it back together. And now NO CD function at all the Mode indicator only takes me between am and fm radio but works fine at that. Hmm. Mopar price on teh RBQ is 575 see below.

HI As said above the shift linkage mounting bolts and the linkage adjustment bolt may need attention. Also check the transfer case shift lever the one that the linkage rod attaches to. Make sure the nut is tight. In my experience with my YJ the shift linkaage is never smooth or precise. It is stiff and cranky. Compared to my liberty the YJs linkage feels crude. But once in gear it stays there. I think it is the nature of the beast. And the 4WD indicator is accurate. Sparky

When we got in the jeep the ground was covered in snow. We shifted from 2WD to 4WD-FT while in park then shifted
That can be characteristic of the tranny going out. When was it last serviced Have you checked the fluid level When the engine is hot put the e-brake on and shift it into neutral on a flat surface. The tranny checker is right behind the oil one. The level should be between the upper two dots when hot in neutral and on flat ground. If it is low put some ATF 4 in it. Smell the fluid as well see if there

(2wd) and yet the indicator lite shows part time and will not go off.Tried shifting while rolling etc no go.Its like it slipped an adjustment where it attaches to the trans or Any and all help would be greatly appreciated Thanks in Advance The CAC hoses are the two large black rubber hoses running from the turbo to the the large Intercooler....the radiator-type contraption at the front of the jeep

Found the issue and everything is working again including the gear selector light on the console. The owners manual said fuse 34 which is a 15A is for the dash courtesy and console indicator lamps. When I pulled it was good so just for the heck of it I started to pull out the other fuses and checked them. When I got to 9 cavity and pulled out the 10A fuse it was bad. I found out that 9 13 and 34 have the instrument cluster and console shift indicator lamp tied into them some way or another.

T-case seems to have a mind of its own And before you ask no its not the indicator light Im talking about. It is so furstraing. Today while parking at work it was such
Mine does the same thing. I wheel it hard and the lights work as they should. Next time I wheel it they are backwards. I dont worry about it. Go with the position of the shift lever not the indicator light. Most likely its a flakey switch on the t-case as stated above.
Thanks for the reply. Will cold weather and lack of use be contributory factors to this too then I will check the tire pressures to make sure they are identical on the same gauge. Tread depth should be pretty close though we have used the vehicle mainly in 2WD for the last 4K miles so backs may be marginally more worn than the fronts. I suppose the best thing we can do is to get the fluids checkedchanged
I own the 231 now since I only have 4hi and 4 lo. SO if I wanted to switch how much is the TC and do I have to modify the cab or will it slip right in I started taking pictures of my conversion for a possible future wrightup but most of them turned out too fuzzy so I quit snapping pictures to get the job done. Around the northeast the yards seem to want about 350 or more for a late model 242. liberty
