    2012 glx-r
    So when I select 4LLC it goes into low range and centre look engages
    But the rear diff lock is not lighting up at all on the dash
    What could be the problem and where to look?

    Look behind the switch and make sure it's plugged in, seen it happen on a challenger

    Is it a manual or auto ?
    Also main point I can think of is are you stopped when selecting ? . A couple of my friends have them and stop in neutral 1st . Then select and put into gear and away you go.

    It probably is mate , contact a Mitzi mechanic and ask the question , it could be a blown light thingy. Have you check if diff lock is working or not ?
    Shouldn't be too hard to find out.

    Thanks for the input
    Will be having a play with it tonight fingers crossed it's something simple that I just haven't thought of

    Try actually moving slowly. These lockers will engage at slow speed.
    Otherwise start checking fuses and the air line. The air pump is located above the rear axle on the passenger side.

    My diff lock wont engage or disengage unless I'm very slow moving. Takes about 5 to 10 m depending on the terrian.
    It's a Nissan y62 but still electronic engagement so they could be of similar set up..

    With little faith in factory stuff I went for the MQ GLX auto and fitted an eaton rear diff locker winch and bar. Cheaper and better I think.
