Locker help!

I have an ARB air locker and i was offraoding the other day, couldnt make it up this rock, went to turn on my locker, i flipped the switch to engage the compressor, at first it didnt work. flipped it a few more times it finally aired up, i flipped theswitch to engage it and had another try at the rock. i was told both of my wheels were not spinning, only one was. should i completely re-wire my locker?

The real question is have you listened to your compressor to know if the switch is turning it on? If the switch turns the compressor on, it doesn't need to be rewired. Which means there is likely an air leak in the compressor, in one of the fittings, or inside the locker itself.

If the compressor isn't turning on, then you've either got bad wiring, a bad switch, or a bad compressor.

It sounds like it works intermittently which could be the switch for starters. This will be one of those things that you need to go by process of elimination.
