07 rubicon diff-lock lights flashing??

Hi there, I'm new to the jk's and and have a coulple questions I'm hoping you guys can help answer. For starters, when I engage rear lock the light flashes but never goes solid. Same with the front locker but I also get a clicking from the front driver wheel?? When diff-lock is applied to the front;every time you turn the wheel slightly, a loud bang comes from the driver front wheel.
Any suggestions or ideas would be appreciated.

Thanks for your reply, yes I am in 4 low and no i don't turn sharp, that wouldn' be a good thing. It's weird, I'll turn to the left and click, click, click.

Sorry to hear that dude .... my first tought would be a U-joint probably left ..... sounds like someone hammered your Rubi before you got it . No worries you will get answers here . Take some pics of your right & left front nuckles ( U-joints ) and you will be steared in the correct direction ..... I have no doubt of that . Really sorry to hear that you have this problem but you WILL get through it .....

Sounds to me like the lockers are not fully engaging. If they were the lights would be solid. I would take the diff covers off and have a look.
