Jeff, As far as the dash illumination not coming back on, I can't really 
say... However I would like to add that the 2 green lights for the diff 
locks not coming on is usuallu a sign that the diffs are not locking.
If you can verify that the diffs are in fact locking when the switch is 
turned, then I would look to the senders in the respective housings.
I have seen this on each of the 4kq's I have owned. After a few years 
the little actuators break where the vaccum lines attach to it, or the 
little rod that works the lock gets rustly and quits moving. (I have 
saeen this more in the rear...)
Good luck,
