Rewire sway bar disconnect

So I have a 17 Rubi that I put dana 60s on. I wired the lockers to my SPOD so I can lock the difs when ever I want. The problem now is the sway bar wont disconnect. Is there a way to rewire or bypass and get the sway bar disconnect working?

Hey Jeremy, Welcome to the forum. Does your sway bar light react to pressing the switch? Does it just flash?

The smart bar, I think that's what its called, is notorious for crapping out if a little moisture finds its way into the right nook or cranny. It's pretty nice to just hit a button and lock and unlock and I've been lucky with mine but when time comes that it stops working I'll probably just install the manual disconnect from EVO. Its just a knob that you turn to engage or disengage the sway bar. Don't forget to stop by the welcome room and intro yourself and rig

The usual symptom when the smart bar goes bad is a constant blinking light. Could be a switch issue, try disconnecting from the stock switch jumping it over to another switch and see if you get any response on your dash.

Lockers should have nothing to do with sway bar disconnecting. You can disconnect in 4hi or 4lo up to 18mph, independent of locker state.
