    Rear locker light flashing

    I have a jku Rubicon 2009 just had new gears put in 4:88 .. Now the rear locker light flashes all the time.. I've tried disconnecting the battery that didn't work.. Jacked it up with it unlocked (coulded get both wheels off the ground) but I could spin the one tire.. Then Locked the rear the light goes to solid and the one tire would not spin.. Diconte the rear and the light just continually blinks.. Can anyone help me.

    Whoever did your regear probably didn't install the plunger correctly.

    Don't jump to conclusions on this. My rear locker usually takes a few revolutions to engage or disengage. Not as responsive as I would like but always seems to work ok if you give it a bit of notice to react. Have even had to "rock it" back and forth sometimes to get response. Don't know if this is normal or not, just my experience. '07 Rubicon.

    I get the same thing, sometimes it takes forever to engage, sometimes pops right in.

    OP, the only time I had locker lights flashing without my intention was, when my sway bar connector corroded, causing a Christmas tree of lights on the dash. In your case, there might have been an install error.

    When my gears were installed the rear did the same thing. They had it wrong. Take it back it was a very quick fix.

    He said its flaking all the time. It shouldn't flash all the time. Only when the switch is pressed and it's waiting to engage like what you mentioned. I'm inclined to agree that the plunger is installed incorrectly. It's a pretty frequent occurance when getting regeared by a shop which isn't familiar with the Rubicon's elocker.

    The rear doesn’t require removal.

    Have the shop that installed them inspect the gears right away. Usually this happens when someone’s does a fucked up gear job and there’s so much metal floating around that it gets in the solenoid and the locker can’t engage.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
