The lights do not come on till the diffs are locked. In other words if 
the switch is in second position and both lights are not on -> then both 
diffs are not locked. If that is the case the first thing I would check 
is to see if the both vac. lines are hooked up may be swapped around on 
the transmission. Conclusion -> If you see both lights come on and making 
turns on the pavement does not agree with the tires the diffs are 
working. On the other hand if the light does not come on in one or both 
of the settings chances are that it is a problem with the vac. lines or 
the transmission rather than the lightbulb.
