Default 4X4 Light on all the time

I have a 2011 Ford Ranger XLT. I was switching from 2WD to 4WD. Now my 4X4 light is on all the time. Any ideas?

a double lashing of black electrical tape over the offensive idiot light usually makes quick riddance of such an annoyance.

But assuming you wanna work harder than that.. is it the only light on? Have you had the ECU scanned as of yet?

I have a check engine light on displaying P1633 on the code reader. This is a PCM and the Ford dealer has had one on order for two weeks. The 4X4 light just came on a few days ago.

Hang on - why is the dealer replacing the PCM? Not purely because of that one code, right?
