US Postal codes use 5 digits...

Are you trying to ask Fedex to accept 4 digits for US?
Or are you not telling fedex the proper country?

Let me give example of USA postal Code they have 4 digit code also.

Below are few example of USA Zip Code.

5645      38.562503      -82.545723      KITTS HILL      OH      LAWRENCE      STANDARD      
2155      42.422095      -71.109297      MEDFORD      MA      MIDDLESEX      STANDARD      
2177      42.446396      -71.459405      MELROSE      MA      MIDDLESEX      STANDARD      

If this code comes up it gives error but its usa zip code.

Those are in fact errors...

Example: Melrose MA zipcode is really 02176  NOT 2177

Sounds like you are using a numeric field for the postal code - use a text field to preserve the leading zero or do some coding on your part so that if the number is less than 10000, you add a 0 in the beggining (when forwarding the info to FedEx.
