4WD light intermittently comes on and off

Has anyone experienced issues with the 4WD intermittently turning on and off while on Auto? I've tried the relay swap behind the battery, but to no avail. The 4WD seems to work fine and activate when needed but the light just bugs me since it comes on and off. Any advice of what else to check? Thanks.

What model year do you have?

Could debris under the button cause the button to make intermittent contact with the membrane/circuit under the button? If you wiggle the switch (im not sure which model your have as certain model years have a different way to activate 4wd) does it activate the lamp?

Also when the lamp is turning on but itself, is this also activating the 4wd system too? Apologies if im missing something..

I have an 08. The switch is the turn knob from 2wd-Auto-4HI-4LO. Normal operation on auto, the system depicts 4 wheels highlighted and the center diff with no lights avatar. When the actual 4WD light kicks on (left side of instrument cluster), the 4 wheel system avatar goes away and then vice versa. I looked this up on the manual and it says the 4WD might have a problem but I don't feel anything wrong. When I turn on 4 HI or 4LO, it engages with no issues, it's only on auto.

Same here, only happened handful of times but nothing ever felt wrong. So just waiting till something is actually wrong unless I run across something in the old threads or a TSB.
