I need some help please. I have a 2005 RR and i keep gettiing TRANSFERBOX NEUTRAL in the message center along with the standard beep. It happens for a split second then it stops. this happened to me last year for a day or two, then it stopped. But on my drive in to work, about 30 minutes it happend too many times to count. and atleast 4 times, the message poped up and stayed on for a minute or two. the truck drove fine, expect i could not put the truck in low gear when i got to a red light. sport and manual modes seemed to work fine. any ideas?
Thanks in advance.

Sounds to me as if you have a bad sensor somewhere. If the transfer box actually went into neutral you wouldn't be able to drive anywhere.

A shot in the dark before killing yourself looking for a sensor issue. I had the same message and by reading some of the prior posts, found that I was getting the message because my local dealer left the fuse in slot 37. See if you have a fuse there, if so, pull it out while the truck is running. The fuse should only be there if you're towing the truck.

At first I would try disconnecting the battery for a little bit and reset the systems. That might fix it, but I still think you have a loose wire or sensor.

As far as tracking that down I am not the best at that. Some of the other members know the RAVE CD in and out.

You would normally expect to get that message if you attempted to select low range with the vehicle in anything other than neutral. I would suspect a faulty hi/low switch connector or an ECU fault. The ECU prevents anything happening unless the vehile is in N so I doubt it would be a sensor. You might try disconnecting the Hi/Low switch and see if the fault repeats clears. Alternatively it may be as simple as contact corrosion and a good clean with some contact clearer will solve? Good luck.
