    O so here goes.... got new gears and ARB front and rear lockers were installed:) I was happy when driving home i noticed the 4x4 light was blinking so I pulled over and put it in reverse to try and get the light to stop. No success, i put it in H4 and i didn't feel anything put it L4 and ususally it buzzes if it doesn't engage in L4 and it didn't even do that it just keeps blinking. :confused: The guys at the shop stated it worked; when i got home i engaged the rear and front locker and it only worked in H4 when put in L4 it didn't feel slower or anything I didn't try engaging the locker in H2 but i bet i could have got them locked. What the hell happened any advice:confused: How do I get the light to stop blinking and et my L4 to start working:eek:

    +1 on calling. If a professional shop just did the install- They need to make sure it's right and teach you about what is going on with your truck now.

    sounds like the logic is messed up and truck is confused about where it should be driveline-wise.

    black electrical tape works, I used to use it to cover up the check engine light on my mountaineer. I checked the engine and it was still in there, but the light would never go away.

    Sounds like an issue with the ADD position sensor. Something got bumped, broken, or disconnected while they were working.
