To activate the 4WD LOCK switch it on by pulling up once and releasing. This locks the center coupling allowing more torque to be sent to the rear wheels. The amber "4WD Indicator Light” will come on in the cluster. This can be done on the fly, at any vehicle speed. To Deactivate, simply pull on the switch one more time. The "4WD Indicator Light” will then go out.

Thanks for the reply, but the 4WD indicator light has an ! after it. So it reads: 4WD! Any thoughts?
