1996 Explorer Sport
Hello, I am new to the forum. I have a 1996 Explorer Sport; 4x4, manual.
My 4xr4 indicator dash lamp comes on when I first switch to 4x4, but then after a time, flashes and turns off. The lamp cycles through a series of several flashes every 5 minutes or so. The 4x4 seems to be working fine but I am wary of an impending problem. Any suggestions?

have you ever found out anything about this issue , i am having it myself
