IF you are on the road and it happens, you probably wont even notice until you turn hard, like left or right on a street, or in a parking lot, you will feel the back wheels hopping and jerking as when you turn left lets say, your in board tire follows a shorter path , thus with an open diff it would allow left to turn at a slower rate, where a locker locks both sides together and the inboard tire will break traction and hopp due to the tourqe applied evenly to both tires, that is why you will ware the tires rapidly and it puts excess ware on the drive train. you will also notice that if you are on the skinny pedel and turn when it is wet you will have the *** end kick out, in stead of just one tire breaking loose as an open diff would, a locker they both will. bottom line is nothing detramental should happen. just turn it off as soon as you notice it, and you will ,like i said, turning.
