not necessarily true either... I did my entire transfer case actuator (OP) and did not reprogram.... Lights went off and havent had an issue yet. It was just plug and play.

2 things. Are you sure that this is the problem? The 4x4 light should have gone off as well. Also, when you did the gear turn, did you turn it 180 degrees? If you only turned it 90 degrees it is...

eeekkkk... You shouldn't have had to take off the metal cover... Thats why I tore mine apart, so people could see. There is no need to take the cover off, just turn the gear around.
