I never really thought about this until a little while ago. I was driving my aunt's Ford Explorer, 4x4, and I noticed that when I put it in 4 hi, it shows "4wd" on the dash in an orange light. And when I switch it to low range it shows "4lo" on the dash in an orange light. I shifted my truck into 4hi and it shows "4wd" in a green light on the dash. When I slide her over into 4lo it doesn't indicate a low range light on the dash. I know I'm in 4lo because it takes a little more gas to get her going, and doesn't go over about 10mph. I looked ALL over the dash and can see no indication of there even being a 4lo indicator light, but I thought I'd ask anyways. Do any of you guys have 4lo indicator lights on your pickups?
i've got a 91 and it only shows the little green light. i had a jeep wrangler before and it just showed an orange light for 4x4. my old tacoma showed 4lo, but not the 91. so i'd say that is right. as long as it just about jumps off the ground when you put it into 4lo, you're ok.
My '93 only has the 4wheel indicator, and that sensor, I think, is on the front diff. I do ont remember any sensors on the transfer case, or at least last time I had it out. yuo may be able to rig somehitng up, but more issues than it is worth, besides, toyota owners know the difference between lo and hi, I am not positive ford owners do, hehehehehehehehehe

There is no 4Hi or 4Lo indicator light on the 89-95 pickups. It simply was not an option on the pickup. There is only the 4WD light that lights up when you pull the stick. You should know whether you're in Hi or Lo by remembering whether you put it in Hi or Lo. If you are in and out of the truck and forgot, just look at the shifter.
You should know if you're in Hi or Lo as soon as you let out the clutch
If you can't tell the difference, step away from the vehicle.
I can tell the difference. It's just glancing at the shifter is a quicker way of gathering that knowledge. Saves me time and clutch wear.
For what it's worth, I'm assuming you weren't talking to me. If I've been using my 4WD, I just find it easier to glance down at the shifter rather than let out the clutch to figure out whether I left it in Hi or Lo.
I have the cluster to my 1994 Deluxe 22RE on my desk right now. I have the bulb for the 4WD marker in my hand. Unless the clusters for the 89, 91 and 94 are different, the bulb is a 194. I'll concede it's possible that the clusters are different as the 89 and 91 are cable driven speedos, where my 94 is all electric.
Still, every resource I've consulted (I've looked at five already), lists the correct lamp for the 89, 91 and 94 as a 194. Some do list the 168 as an option, but also list the 194. I've attached pictures of the 194 bulb lamps and the 74 bulb as a guide. Compare the one in your cluster to these and there you go.
