Same problem with mine, i have manual hubs so I really don't worry about it too much. If you have auto hubs you might want to check them.

Found out what it might be. If you have manual hubs, make sure they are fully disengaged when you are driving and you have the 4X4 off in the cab. One of my hubs didn't fully disengage and the light stayed on. Check the hubs and made sure they were both off and it wasn't on in the cab, light went out and stayed out.
