So, 150 mile drive and after about 2 hours I notice the rear diff lock light is flashing.
Strange as Iím in 2wd? After a little while it stopped, then started again.
Stopped to check everything, and all seemed fine - fired it up and carried on.
Then a bit later my abs came on? Brakes were immediately tested and seemed fine - they worked 👍🏻
No other odd signs, temperature, voltage, burning smell 😳 . Nothing unusual except for the lights.
Any ideas, advice would be great as I have to drive back again in two days - cheers.

Could be a very small vac pipe leak somewhere. Does the EML come on too?

No other warning lights.
Iíll have a poke around in the morning, check all the pipes and wires.
Iíll get a chance to run it in 4wd too, see if anything just needs freeing up??
Thanks.

Had a look around and couldít see anything wrong. Went through all drive options and was getting the green flashing light that seems popular, so thought that must be it? So headed of (in 2wd),  and it bloody fixed itself?! 😳
Bit of local driving around, then 150 miles home with not a single flash. So for now it seems fixed, and having scoured these pages I feel a little more informed for ďnext timeĒ.

Found and fixed!
Wires shorting, caused by modified exhaust gas cooking the plastic shield.
Wires fixed, heat shield made and fitted. Next job - custom exhaust tip!!
