4Matic idiot light / fluid

I have a 1991 4Matic 300 TE with 325,000 kms (190,000 miles) on it in very nice condition. Recently the 4Matic light has come on and stayed on. The car continues to operate normally and there are no odd sounds or odors. I have deleted the code twice by diconnecting the battery, however after a couple of hours of driving it comes on again. I believe the problem is fluid based as the light comes on after the triangilar light at the top of the spedometer has come on intermitently during cornering. I have checked the front and rear differential/gearbox fluids and found them to be OK. The transmision fluid also seems to be within the permitted range, as is the level in the main hydraulic fluid resovoir. Any other suggestions before I take it to the dealer and get told to start replacing sensors, or the 4Matic gearbox? Thanks,
Bruce, Edmonton, Alberta
