I think that system is a vacuum system. I'd look at those if it does and if he is getting a flashing light on the dash it might be a motor problem.

All the push button stuff work fine the lights stay on and like I said it has manual lock outs that shouldn't have any vacum or electric actuators as far as I know

lock the hubs in and try to turn the axle shaft or cv shaft which ever it has. if that turns then the lock out is bad.

If you lift it up and put it in 4x4 and lock hubs you should not be able to spin wheel without axle shaft spinning. Look at u joints in the axle to make sure.

Well put a load on it and see if the axle shafts are spinning. And I meant lift it and spin tires by hand to see if shafts move. Its not difficult. If the shafts spin its the hubs, if the don't and your driveshaft spins then its in the diff, if your driveshaft doesn't spin then its the t case. Process of elimination.

When you have it on the lift and its under power the wheels are spinning because there is friction on the hubs when the axle shafts spin. You need to check them by hand. It can be done on the lift or on the ground doesnt matter lock the hubs in and turn the tire and hold the axle shaft see if it spins or not. I check it on the ground with the tires on the ground I grab the axle shaft and try to turn it if it turns the lock out is bad simple as that.
