Rear locker won't disengage / light blinking

Thought I would throw this out there in case anyone else searches for the issue. 2012 Rubicon 41k miles. Rear locker wouldn't disengage. I know you can get in through the rear differential plug and use a screw driver to push the plate over. However, I didn't have any tools available at the time so I raised the passenger side of the rear axle and rotated the tire gently. Heard it pop loose.
(there was no amount of driving, figure 8's, going forward, backward or cussing that would make it work)

Took her to the dealer today, warranty replacement of rear locker underway. They won't have the locker until Friday so I'll update once I get her back and have a chance to driver her.

Well that was fun.
The parts were due in a week ago today. They didn't get all that they needed so it was pushed back to Tuesday.
Ice storm delayed shipment so the parts arrived Wednesday afternoon. Should be finished Thursday.
Got a call Thursday morning, some of the bolts that came with the new locker kit were the wrong size. Should be Friday.
Friday, picked her up. New locker replaced under warranty and all it cost me was 11 days without my Jeep. Seems to function properly.
