Thanks. I have only used my lockers once and that was when I was already stuck in a mud hole. I guess that is why It didn't seem like they made any difference when I turned them on as the lights were only flashing.

Is it possible to lock them when I am at a stop?

I feel like I should know this stuff, I even read the owners manual front to back.

Technically, yes, they should lock as soon as you hit the switch. All that's happening is a 12v signal is being sent to the electronic locker and causing it to lock/engage. I honestly don't know why it sometimes takes a few feet to really engage, but it just does. LOL.

Most of the time mine lock and unlock just fine, as soon as I touch my switches, though. Usually at a dead stop...

There is a vid on youtube that one of the custom shops posted I believe showing an e-locker out of the housing engaging and disengaging and how it really works.

i swear i've been able to get mine to engage when i've been in a swivel position (driver front and passenger rear both with no traction). seemed to just take a few seconds of letting the gears spin and the tractionless wheel on the axle spinning. release the throttle and wait a moment and then the lockers stopped flashing and i was moving upward again.

i don't think it was the BLD system, sometimes if its just one wheel and a small slippery patch i don't even bother with the lockers. definitely not as controlled feeling as the lockers when doing that.

So I just tested my lockers out here to see if they work. The front locker light will go solid but the rear one wont, it just flashes. Any suggestions? It should still be under warranty.

Try turning the steering wheel to the side a little bit to make the back wheels turn at a slightly different rates to let the dog teeth mesh.
