Rubi E-sway bar problem

Hey guys,
I need to trouble shoot my sway bar. I was just basically doing a functions check on my sway bar and the light keeps flashing and will not go solid. I just had a brand new module put in BC I broke the old one. Where I go offroading I don't really have a need for the disconnect so I've never actually disconnected it but I just tried and nothing. Any suggestions?

Re: Rubi E-sway bar problem

Are you meeting the requirements for it to disconnect? 4WD, speed less than 14mph?

I even tried to rock it like I've read and nothing. The dealership just put a brand new one in. Cost me 1200 for something that won't even work. Then light just flashes, just found out its the same for my lockers.

Just to throw out there a guess, but could the 4WD "detector" be unplugged/broken? Is the 4WD light 'on', on the dash?

Yes the light comes on when I put it in then shuts off when I take it out of 4wd. Now the sway bar light keeps flashing even when I don't push the button. -___-

I don't have the E-lockers or sway bar disconnect so I might be wrong, but don't you have to be in 4-low to use them?

4hi or low for the sway bar and 4 low for the lockers both of which you have to stay under 18 mph but not working. The dealership is taking care of my clutch in a couple weeks as well as my inner axle seal so I'm going to have them look into the sway bar and the actuator in the diff for the lockers

Mine says 18 mph, but also mentions 14 mph. So, if one is having problems, I would suggest staying below 14 mph just to eliminate speed as a potential cause. And I would use the EVIC's digital speedometer as the reference.
