Default E brake and 4wd light stays on?

hey all,

i have a 86 sammy and i cannot figure out why the e brake light stays on and also the 4wd light is stuck on even though neither of the e brake is on nor 4wd.

Any suggestions?

Well - it sounds like you missed something - like a defective switch, an incorrect connection, or a wire shorted to ground somewhere.

Both of those lights turn on when the respective switches close and supply a ground to the lamp - find the switches and start tracing the wiring back.

The e-brake light is also wired to the fluid level sensor on the master cylinder so check that too.

When I bought my GV the e-brake light came on with the ignition, the previous owner said it was like that for years - took me about 5 minutes to eliminate the fluid level side of it and several hours to locate the short - I had actually given up trying and started on the process of running a new wire to the e-brake switch, and when I got alongside the transmission shifter - someone had removed and replaced the shifter pinching the wire and shorting it.
