Problem with Rubi locker

Went out on the trail today and found something is wrong with my lockers. My front locker engaged fine but my rear didn't want to engage. I ended up screwing with it some and every time the front would engage but the rear just showed the light binking like it was trying but not working. I quit screwing with it and just tried it now and than after that. Well one time it engaged so I thought cool, maybe it fixed itself. Well it didn't, I can't get it to disengage now. I ended up riding home with my rear all locked up. I tried turning off the Jeep here and there and also tried going back and forth a little between 4 lo, 4 hi, and 2 wheel. Nothing I did helped......thinking it need to go to the dealer. As of now it's still binking like it wants to unlock but won't. Just want to get input before I go that route. Thanks

That solution has been discussed before on here. In fact, someone said that if you know where everything is at, it may be possible to do it through the overflow hole. Good luck!

I've looked around and have seen a few different answers. I think I am going to pull my cover and see what I can see. Sounds like a lot of people think it might just need a fuid change. I will probably try this and if it doesn't work, I will take it to the dealer. Should be covered under warranty anyways.
