Well if it was in all the time and wasn't working then I would be looking at something else like a hub or something that wasn't fitted right as I have never known one to be open as you described and if fitted right cannot operate as an open diff.

I'd say the pins are busted then cuz... locked is locked... doesn't matter if it is air, elec or mechanical so if it was "open" then that is usually sheared locking pins.

Check it out and get some spare pins if that is the case and sell it on... you will get a coupla hundred for it

I busted one and it was repaired free of charge by 4WD Systems so I can't complain and would sure have another one, No worries.
