Is this with the auto lock? Did you try manually locking? Vacuum seals on my '05 went, did the same thing. Learned this in 2 feet of snow around an intersection with a plow on, almost took out a car lol

It worked for me. Threw it in park, turned on my lights and locked them in 4x4 high. Believe I did it in that order. I had to replace my hubs later because they were warped and it hooked up no problem after that! Hubs then switch.
The vacuum seals are known to go, check tomorrow and see if thy works for ya!

I believe that you can select, at least my dash said high/low when I switched.

No problem, let me know if that's not it but it sounds like what my problem was. If you don't plan on fixing it for auto, you can get front caps that cover the lugs but leave the hubs open, that's what I had they made life so much easier.
