Now I'm sure it's still really tight as it's still so new. But as I am new to the world of lockers, I'm curious if what I am seeing is normal behavior.
- When I engage the locker in 4lo, I usually have to hit the button 4 or 5 times to get it to engage. I'll stop, hit it, it won't engage, so I'll turn it off, and then creep a few feet, then try again. That's frustrating.
So am I doing it wrong? Should I just hit the button, and leave it lock in as I creep forward and the gears eventually line up? I was under the assumption the locker should only be engaged/disengaged when fully stopped. Can someone give me some advice here?
- Tonight I engaged the locker in 4lo. I them clicked out of 4lo (in neutral) back to 4hi, but the locker remained engaged (icon illuminated on dash, ABS off, etc.). I wondered if something went wrong, so I hit the button on and off several times ... nothing. I turned the truck off and back on ... it was still engaged. Finally, I just drove forward maybe 15 feet or so, and it finally disengaged on it's own.
Is that normal behavior with the e-locker? Is it supposed to disengage when fully stopped? I know it's not supposed to remain on in 4hi. Or after shifting out of 4lo, and turning off the locker, are you supposed to just drive a bit to get it to disengage? And how tough is the damn thing? Maybe I'm babying it too much. But all those clinks and clunks under the truck always worry me!
