    Default 2017 Isuzu 4x4 problem

    Hi Guys
    Please advise if any of you experienced this before and what is the solution to the problem.
    When engaging into 4H & 4L it engage immediately BUT the 4H & 4L dashboard light keeps on flashing - as we all now the light should indicate that you are engaged and should not be flashing.
    Just keep in mind the 4x4 system works and engages perfect.

    Werner, does it keep on flashing even after driving for a couple of meters?

    On my 2007, it also flashes until I start moving forward or reverse. It is as if there is a sensor that needs to align to confirm engagement.

    I'd start looking for that sensor, sounds like it's gone bad if you say the mechanical bits work and your car has gone into low range.

    My old 280 also started with that indicator flashing, byt 4x4 and low range is working.
    I think it would also be either the bulb in the display oe a connection issue or maybe the sensor.
    Mine no longer indicates at all but I can still engage and use 4x4 and low range.
    My old lady is much older than your old lady, but could be a similar issue.
    At this stage, as long as the mechanicals still operate as they should, I am happy.

    I can hardly see that indicator light in bright sunlights conditions anyway, and if you forget to disengage 4x4 it WILL remind you as soon as you start doing turns on a solid surface.
    For the rest you just waste some fuel.
    Then there is the diff. lock. So seldom used these days ....
