Any problems if I disconnect the electrical wiring to my control trac?

My control trac 4wd on my 97 was acting up and by pulling #27 fuse to
disable the 4wd, the int lights/pwr windows were also disabled. So I
went ahead and just pulled the large plug that goes to the transfer
case, is this hurting anything if I do this indefinitely? My 4wd lights
blink, which I don't mind, I assume its going straight into error
mode which I feel is better then letting the car lock the front wheels
together in turns a few times before it goes to error mode. Any
suggestions greatly appreciated.
Thanks

I recently bought a '97 with control trac so I'm interested even though I
don't have a problem with mine (yet). I have read that worn or mismatched
tires can cause the sensors to think some tires are slipping and activate
the control trac. Is yours going into 4WD when you don't want/need it to?
