Diff lock

Where do I start looking for the cause of the diff lock that is not engaging? The light keeps on flashing. I used the lock for about 20 seconds once about 3 years ago and only now wanted too see if it works, it does not.
I could not find a dedicated fuse for the diff lock.

Diff lock will only engaged in LOW RANGE. I think you are trying to engage it while you are not in L, light will the only flash.

I will have to find a place where I can get some slip on the back diff. The 4 wheel drive is too effective too easily get slip.

Remember that you must drive a bit for it to engage. It will flash when on and solid light when engaged.

Which fuses must I check? Do you know which of the prongs in the plug at the diff, carry the power to the diff.
