I’ve ran down the wires to the hubs getting almost 12 volts both sides just does lock in.
Need help can I just clean up the metal maybe. And is it a common thing that the magnets just stop working on both sides?

Partly depends on several factors - including what kind of oil in the hubs and how you are testing. How did you determine the AWD was not working?

There is a really good tutorial here that covers the hub hilliard clutches. Explains how they work and how to fix them I would start there.

All the oil in the hub has to do is mix emulsify with water and it can quit working - sometimes just draining the hub and putting in new oil will fix it.

How do I find that
Open the How To section and it is a saved one just a couple down from the top in the list. The first part is what you want to read. A lot of the later part is some of us responding and asking questions. Basically the system energizes the wires to the hubs when the switch is on, but doesn't engage them until the rear wheels slip. The system is controlled on the ground side through all the sensors.

If you had all 4 wheels off the ground then there is a problem obviously......Changing the fluid in the hubs is the first thing to try. I would drain and refill with auto transmission fluid get that circulated and drain it again. Maybe do that a few times to flush out all the years of gunk. You can test it again with the trans fluid and even run it that way if you want to. I generally use it to flush the system then go to the Demand Drive fluid from Polaris.
