    Okay so either the vacuum solenoid is faulty or you have a leak in the vacuum hose between the solenoid and diff.

    Do the same vacuum test at the solenoid. Remove one out going vacuum hose at a time. I canít remember which one is which but one will have vacuum with the diff lock switch in one position and then the other one should have vacuum when the switch is turned. I would start with the switch in the off position first.

    If there wasn't, don't just condemn the solenoid yet we need to check the power circuits to the solenoid first.

    Ok,
    With the Locker ON, I have no air on both outlets of vac solanoid
    With Locker OFF I have vaccume on the top of the vac solanoid

    Sounds like the solenoid is stuffed. Letís just make sure the electrical circuit is ok.

    Engine running and diff lock switched on. Check for power in the Blue with a White trace wire and Pink with a Black trace wire at the vacuum solenoid.

    Also check both earths.

    Hey Rod, Thank you so much for your help!

    Took it into Nissan and they farked me around as usual.

    They said I had a split hose which sucked mud into the diff actuator and vac solanoid . No idea how it would suck anything into the diff actuator as the vac is from solanoid???
    They did say the diff lock was working........any way the car is sold now

    Once again THANK YOU for your help!

    Actually, this could be a good thread for troubleshooting diff lock issues but the thread title is not the best
