04 Rubicon front axle won't lock

It was working fine, but now when I try to lock the front axle it just keeps blinking. When I turn off the locks the jeep want to dive to the front right when I let off the gas. I then have to put it in reverse and then move forward again to get it to disengage. All stop parts. The rear locks just fine. Please help me figure out this problem.

Put it on a lift or jacks and pull the diff cover and flip the locker so you can visually see it working, spin tire by hand if needed to engage or disengage the locker.
It may be working fine and just the light is malfunctioning.
I have front and rear locker over rides and both lights blink but the actual locker works just fine.

I had the same issue on rear 06 rubi lj and it turned out to be the electric connection
which is mounted to top of rear or front axle, sometimes it's tricky trying to figure out if it's the locker or the light. you also have vacuum lines that should be checked
