Getting the locker lights on the dash to work on a non rubi

My jeep is a sahara model and stock they do not come with lockers. Now I have ARB front and rear and my own switch panel to control that etc.... What I would like to do is when either of the lockers are engaged I would like to have the locker lights on the dash correspond to that. I am sure that those lights are on the can network so has anyone been able to figure that out?

I donít know if the ARBís are set to trigger like the factory lockers, but you can buy switches that have lights built into the switch itself that will trigger on...once the factory locker is locked. OTRATTW.COM sells them. I have them rigged up to my sPOD. When the locker is engaged, all the locker is doing is grounding the light indicator wire. My factory rear locker crapped out on me so I replaced it with a 35 spline Auburn Ected. It doesnít operate the same as the factory, because it has no trigger...so I lost the activation light.

Current vehicles:
2007 Sahara 2-Door

Trussed, sleeved, gusseted Dana 44 front w/ factory Rubi locker and RCV shafts
Stock rear Rubi Dana 44 with Auburn Ected locker w/ 35 spline chromoly shafts

I bet the signal to the cluster comes from the TIPM. Maybe find a schematic of what/where the communication takes place and jump into that from your locker switches. I'm sure it's more difficult than I just made it sound. There might even be a empty pin on one of the cluster connections on non-rubicons.

This is what I am hoping. I just want to add a wire or two and get the light and the chime on the dash when either of them are engaged.
