I recently bought a 05 jeep rubicon. I put it into four low. Press the axle lock button down, and nothing happens. The orange light on the switch doesn't light up or any of the indicator lights on the dash, the switch does glow when i have my lights on, so i know there is power to the switch, but do you think my switch is bad? i checked underneath and everything is plugged in on the compressor, but i dont here it make any sounds when i try pushing the switch either.
I would pull your dash and check with a test light to see if you have power going to the switch. If there is no power tot he switch then you will not be able to send power to the relay and compressor also your dash 4x4 light is post switch. With no light there I would begin checking to see where you have power. Did you check fuses as that would be the logical place to start. I can get a wiring diagram fro the compressor and switch later today and post it for you.
Did you have power at the relays? you could jump or bypass the relays and go from there. If you have power at the relays but no power to activate them it most likely will trace back to no power at the switch.
I just thought of this, did you see if the connector in the back of your switch is connected or even pushed in all the way? It very will could have been removed or pulled out when the other switch was installed or the radio was installed. I know that the switches don't need to come out but I am trying to help troubleshoot.
as for other fuses I would assume that there are fuses to the switches and or to the compressor itself. Don't quote me on it I have to check a wiring diagram at the shop.
i just looked at the relays, and they didn't look burnt or anything. But i didn't think both relays would just go out at once. I did check the connector as well behind the switch and it was connected, i even undid it and plugged it back in, just in case
I bet the fuse is blown.If you do have pwr to the switch you could prob jump the switch to see if the switch is bad.If theres more than 2 wires (prob is) going to switch make sure you jump the correct ones.
Check to see if your getting power at the compressors, run the lines and look for holes/leaks/poor connections.
There is a wire that enters both diff's for the locker sensor and an air line for both as well. there is a air line connection in the diff ( these ) come loose and will not engage your locker, So the dash light will flash for ever! Also if there is a broken wire on the sensor the locker will engage but the light will flash!
It was hard to tell in your video but is your 4x4 low indicator light coming on? If the switch on the transfer case is bad, the circuit does not know you are in 4 low and it will not allow lockers to engage.
I did the bypass a few year's ago where it will allow lockers to work in any transfer position if thst mod is done whould that completely bypass the tc sensor all together and is there a way to just get rid of the stock switch and put lockers on separate switches im hoping to get this fix soon have a trip planned begin of the month
Anywhere have a picture or diagram where the TC switch is. i bought one, but not exactly sure where it goes in.
It is on top of the transfer case, best access is from the drivers side front. Clean the area, unplug the electrical connector and unscrew with big socket, stubby wrench or pair of channel locks. Don't forget the oring when installing the new one. Here is a link to an earlier thread ...http://www.wranglerforum.com/f5/rubi...or-213847.html
If you are getting flashing lights the first thing I would check is that the fill plugs on the diff cover are not in too far/to tight. If you tighten the fill plugs to far, you will get a flashing light for the locker because the locker ring is not able to move to the lock position.
