There should be 12v at one of the solenoids at all times when the ignition is on.
If you aren't getting voltage to one or both of the solenoids, then you have trouble somewhere before them. You can apply power dorectly to them without harming anything, and yes they should click.

when I installed my FT4wd w/difflock, I had to do all my own wiring. Its really easy.. One power in to the switch.. two out. One to each solenoid.
so now i think i just need to install my own manual electronic controls for this thing. anyone done that?
i'll dig into the FSM tonight.
On the solenoid side, theres a power in to each one.. the other wire is a ground.

Gary, do you hear the vacuum sound like Gravityman was descring?
Gravityman, it sounds like yours is probably working. Try pushing the button while the car is moving and hopefully that'll solve your problem Hopefully it's something as simple as that.

Me to bob I'll let you know! Should the light come on or will the driving feeling just change? Thank you.

Does anyone know how to post pictures from your computer instead of having to use a URL?

DIFF LOCK engages and disengages best when driven in a straight line at low speeds. it will in other situations as well, but most consistently as mentioned. and the light should come on when it's engaged. if the light comes on, it should be engaged. i know of XT6's that would actually be engaged but the light IS NOT ON, but i've never heard of an XT6 where the light would come on when the car wasn't actually engaged. so if your light comes on i think you're golden. (you'll know it as soon as you try to turn on dry pavement if you're curious, the binding is unmistakeable).
