Loyale 4wd light on dash

Make sure the car is not in 4wd, as this switch is only activated when the lever for shifting into 4wd is moved to the engagement position.
The wires from the switch may have been pinched.
This pair of wires from the switch (one blue with a red tracer and one black) run on top of the transmission and meet a subharness at a barrel connector under the spare tire. The blue/red wire could be gounding out as that is what turns the light on. (The black wire is a ground wire)
There is a fairly recent post on problems caused by the cable from the vacuum servo unit that controls 4wd engagement sticking, you may want to search and read. Mine recently did this also.
I wrote an article on repair of this system but it has not made it into the repair manual.
Email me and I'll send you a copy if you like.
Hope this helps
