Hi Kevin. Thanks for sending the question tonight. There are two things that I would check. First, verify that there are no frayed wires connected the new transfer case sensor - especially the ground. Sometimes this can disable the 4x4 light. In other cases, using an aftermarket case or used case can cause connectivity issues as well, so if your new case is not OEM, this might be the reason as well.
