Rubicon "Rear Differential Lock" indicator

I test drove an 03 Rubicon, placed it in 4 low and pressed the differential lock toggle switch. A "rear differential lock" indicator illuminated on the instrument panel. My question is, should there also have been a "front differential lock" indication? Also, the od off switch did not illuminate nor did it prevent transmission from shifting into overdrive. Any common problems with od off switch? As-is sale.

Thanks in advance.

I don't have a rubicon so I'm not too sure but I'm pretty sure you press the switch again for the front to lock. You press it once for just the rear. Not sure if there is a front differential lock light.
