    My ABS,4WD and Cruise Dash lights won't light up. 4wd does work but the cruise and abs don't. Also diff lock just blinks and doesn't seem to engage. If the bulbs in the dash cluster are burnt out would that prevent those systems from working?

    your diff wont work unless you do the gray wire mod

    Now is the dimmer switch turned down? does the dash light up when your head lights are on?

    Dash lights are turned up. Don't know why I would have to do a mod to make the factory diff lock switch work? Am I missing something?

    the diff will only lock when it is in 4low.. doing the mod will make it so it will lost anytime.

    your ABS light will only light up when your ABS is turned off..

    Yeah tried to lock it in in 4 low still no dice! Waited for about a min with the light blinking. ABS light won't even light up for a couple secs during start up during the bulb check. Just wondering if your your dummie light bulbs are out if they will stop the power from getting to the system? ie: cruise control. Have a very ice covered parking lock and i slammed on my brakes to test the ABS and it didn't pulse on/off like on our newer car?:confused:
