So I converted my dana 30 to a solid axle (the cheap spring in housing way). The problem I'm having now is I can't get the 4wd indicator to work. I spliced on a new connector and put a 97 wrangler sensor in the np231 transfer case. It worked like three times then stopped. While it worked it was unpredictable at best. So I disconnected the connector and made a jumper to make sure my soldered connections were good... Light came on. But when I put it back together, nothing. The switch that was recommended (dorman brand) from the 97 had a short looking button compared to the stock pneumatic switch (is that normal?). So that being said my questions are, could there be something in the transfer case that is warn that could prevent the button from being pushed? Has anyone else done this conversion successfully? Is the 97 np231 any different in regards to the switch? Please I'd like to hear from people that have successfully done this. Ps the pneumatic system was also iffy and when I added my lift kit with the skid plate spacer it went from iffy to nothing. Could the lift be causing my problems?
Here is a pic of the OEM next to the doorman. I had the same problem put the OEM switch in and fixed
Waiting on my Rough Country lift to sag!
YEA! This is the kind of answer I was looking for! Thanks Apollo. This schematic was helpful but your knowledge on the parts and how they go together is priceless. This is why I love forums like this. Thanks again.
