recently the service 4x4 light came on in the dash, also the light on the selector doesn't light as it used to. when I turn the key on all the lights come on the selector at the same time then go out. Also when I turn the wheel hard from a stop or moving real slow it feels like something is binding.what should I look for to fix this. I know I need to change fluids as I have about 112k on the truck.

Has the transfercase been changed yet? If not at 112k you may be screwed already because it is suposed to be changed every 50k. Try turning on the ignition but not starting the truck and switching the selector and see if you get two seperate motor sounds. I know Roadie can explain it better.

tried tuning the ignition on and turning the selector and didn't hear anything. how bad could this be? not sure if transfer case fluid was ever changed bought the truck with about 85k on it.. I did tranny fluid about 105k and it was very clean.
