Yesterday I went on some dirt roads and sound a steel hill and turned on the lockers on 4lo.
Went up real slow and half way through the lockers turned off and I slid back a little until I braked. Noticed the lockers lights turned off.

What's the deal?

Were you getting a popping sound to go along?

I broke the rear locker on my 2009 Rubicon. I kept pressing the locker button: the front locker light got solid but the rear kept blinking, accompanied by a popping sound.

It was still under warranty, so Jeep replaced the whole axle and had the dealer ship them the axle with the broken locker. They wanted to see what happened. Apparently it is difficult to break one.

MY means Model Year

I have read some stories on here where the locker does not fully engage and comes disconnected. There were a few people who used a spacer on the locker engagement ring that forced a more complete lock when engaged. I'll see if I can find it for you.

Sorry, sometimes I forget that using abbreviations can be obnoxious! :tomatoes:

I wanted to see if I could find anything on our end to help. Thanks for letting me know the year.
