Center diff lock button doesn't work (but diff lock does)
Posted 25 October 2009 - 06:50 AM
4WD works fine but the center diff lock button won't engage it. I currently swap vacuum hoses to engage the diff lock.
I've already swapped buttons.
Here's what I think will tell the issue to someone crafty - when I give the vacuum hose to the 4WD mechanism direct vacuum, the differential locks just fine perfectly like normal.
Then - if I press the button, the center diff lock light will light up - so the circuit is all there and working.
And then if I remove vacuum the diff lock STAYS LOCKED (light on and all) until I depress the button. So the circuits and all work.
I think a person more adept than me at electronics would probably know exactly what this is.
Probably a solenoid?
