removing the fuses did not work. But, I disconnected the battery for about half hour to reset the computer and it reset the 4x4 back to auto, Walla! So if your car is stuck on a any of the low or high 4x4 this should work to rest it for you as well.

IC you just fixed my truck. I have a 2002 XLT and both of the Low/High lights were on when it started and was essentially stuck in 4wd mode until it eventually kicked into AUTO mode for regular driving. I unplugged the battery for 30 mins and like all 2000 era computers once it rebooted.... its back to normal.
