Front locker would not release

I have a 2013 JKUR and last night out on a trail my front locker locked and would release. I didn't even put the lockers on. Only put it in 4wd. When I got back on the road I couldn't steer. I put it in low range along side the road and turned lockers on and off, back up and forward. Would not unlock. I removed the fuse and the disconnected the relay for the lockers and still locked. Ended up towing too the shop. Anyone ever have this happen? I have no idea why it this happened.

Did the dash light flash, or was it flashing?

There are a few threads about this. It seems there is a spring or something that does not release in the locker. from what I remember, you can pull the fill plug and stick your finger in to get it to release, but don't quote me as my memory isn't what it used to be.
