Hello, I was out riding today on my First ride and I got stuck. When I got winched out my I 4wd light was on. Now my 4wd still works but the light stays on. Any help would be greatly appreciated. As I'm under 10 miles on it.

I would check with all your ground connections and make sure they are good and tight. These machines are very electronic and very sensitive to a good ground.

Ours came on early on and I really think it was just me not understanding the shifting/timing of shift etc.. I believe we need to give the vehicle a little bit of time to make the shift to 4WD before we start romping on it. My guess for my situation was I hit the button then got on it and the rear tires slipped with out the front end engaged and the computer saw that as an error. Mine did go our after I came to a stop, properly shut the machine down, Waited 10 seconds and restarted it. I’ve given it plenty of time to make the shift before getting into the throttle hard and not had the light come on again since.

Kind of related, i've been stopping my talon to put it into or out of 4wd, but with it being electronic can one shift on the fly?

Yes McCarthy you can shift on the fly. I wondered the same and looked in my manual and it says you can.

I have noticed it won't reliably shift on the fly. I have tried turning it off while rolling towards pavement, it won't disengage until I fully stop. I can usually get it to turn on rolling.
