4WD Lo Light Blinking... Has anyone else had this problem

Lo light blinking, Actually in Lo Gear (can tell from experience of being in low), locker won't engage and ATRAC won't come on....

Turned out to be this... Time for some Silly Cone and solder!!!



If you had this problem what was your solution?

I think taking that sucker out, solder and silly cone may be a bit easier... certainly not as good as your solution but about 40 hours easier!
