This light is telling you that a problem exists in the AWD system, the light reset's everytime the key is turned off, then because the system fault s still there it comes back on, the 20 second delay is the time required for the system to test itself.

My 1998 awd safari shifts hard from first to second only after i get off the highway. If i turn it off and start it right back up,problem goes away. any answers?


Even though it seems like a trans issue, it may be a restricted fuel filter, that can plug more at higher speeds. I would check the fuel filter first. Good luck...

The front wheels on my 2003 Safari AWD are not engaging and the AWD light does not come on the dash when I turn the key on. Also the air only comes out the defroster vents no matter what I put the setting...


i do not know if the to are conected but i do not think so as far as the heater defrost problem you proberley have a vacume line off the engine it is a small hose as far as the awd sounds like a fuse or a bad module
