4x4 engaged light won't turn off

On my 2002 my 4x4 engaged light won't turn off when I go from 4x4 to 4x2. Anyone ever have this happen? Anyone know how to fix it?

I tried re-disengaging it, but it kept on doing it.

Yup, I use 4x4 almost daily right now due to an uphill and icy driveway, and this has been going on since last week.

Otherwise you are right that its an electrical issue.
Yup my driveway is like a sheet of ice, can barely get up it in 2wd but goes up nice in 4wd, so its easy for me to see that its in 2wd

Sometimes I have to put mine in reverse and back up slowly a few feet before it will disengage. This happens when I've been in 4wd all day in muddy conditions. ( I used it alot on construction sites for work.)

The procedure I follow is I drive foreward slowly and put it back into 4wd, then back to 2wd while still moving. I stop, put the truck into reverse and back up slowly. The light then goes out.

Sorry if you already tried this.
