    I think you are right.

    Plus - the electrical switch is external to the differentials,
    if things are not adjusted right, you CAN have the differential
    locked and NOT turn on the light.  BTDT.

    The "turn-off" of the ABS is triggered by the same switch, so
    as in my case, you could lock the differential (by vacuum) and
    not turn on the light ... and also not automatically turn off
    the ABS.  The adjustment was right on the edge for a while,
    sometimes I got a light and ABS off, sometimes not.
