LJ Rubicon locker issue

Ok so my 06 LJ Rubi is a 3rd vehicle and isn't driven much anymore and even less in 4wd and even less yet with the lockers engaged.

Went to engage the lockers recently and the lights on the dash would just blink but never activate the locker. verified the pump was running, it was but didnt have a lot of time to deal with it then and didnt investigate further.

Fast forward to today i have some extra time so i go to check it out. Put in 4L, hit the button and nothing. No light on the switch itself and no lights on the dash. WTF? I climb under it with key on, engine off, tcase in 4L, push the locker switch and nothing. Pumps are not running.

I haven't put 12v directly to the pumps yet to verify but they were working last time and I am pretty sure the light on the switch lit up too. This time the locker switch light isnt illuminated. Checked the #24 fuse under the hood marked offroad and it appears to be good. Anything else to look for? I hate to buy a switch for $90 and that not fix it.

Does the 4WD dash light turn on when you put the transfer case in 4L? How about 4H?

If the 4WD light isn't working start there. The lockers won't work unless it does.

Just do the locker bypass anyways. Then it doesn't matter if the 4wd indicator light is on or not. Simple jumper wire to do the simple bypass.

I made a quick video...don't judge lol. I just did the simple bypass to use my lockers in any drive. You can do the independent switches too.


Here is a good write up.
