Not true. If you have the fuse in place to disconnect the rear wheels it is safe to tow on a dolly. Subaru recommends not more than 40 MPH and only for short distance if it is an automatic. Manual may be towed longer distance. Have a great day.

Absolutely not! The only way you could without damaging the drive train would be to remove the rear drive shaft.
If you tow it on a dolly with the drive shaft still in place it will basically blow up the transmission since all 4 wheels are "locked" together.

4wd 1996 subaru how do i activate or engage 4wd


All Subies are AWD 24/7
There is a towing fuse located under the hood. If it is missing (or blown) - the vehicle will only be FWD (for instances you need to tow).
Check the fuse is in place and good.

Consult your owner's manual for the location... (usually passenger side firewall.

Thanks!

Looking for the kind of fuse needed for a awd 1997 subaru lagacy. had the car towed this morning and the tow driver said my fuse that regulates the awd was blown???


There is a fuse box in the engine compartment on the passenger side labeled FWD and, under normal conditions, should be empty. The user manual indicates that a fuse can be installed in order to disable AWD. This should be done if you are using the spare tire, the car is to be towed w/o a flatbed and when the front and rear wheels aren't the same.
I imagine that the driver checked this fuse box and found it empty and told you the fuse was blown... does this sound about right?
With the fuse installed you will get a warning light on the dash (red FWD) to remind you that your rig is running in FWD mode...
This FWD fuse box is only present on AT models.
Why was the car towed and did they lift the front end or put it on a flat bed?
Cheers, immorion

How do i change my 94 legacy from 4WD to fWD


You probably aren't as these transmissions will automatically go into 4 wheel drive via a viscous coupling inside the transmission that detects wheel slip .

Hello--- can I tow a 2000 AWD volvo wagon with a dolly? Thanks!


Um...no...in order to tow you need rated tow-cable or shock absorbing chains or a tow hitch. you would also need hazard lights that also show which way the towed vehicle is turning (ppl cant see the towing car's turn signals) usually there are magetics ones that hook up to the towing cars trailer light system.
Safe towing by LAW is the issue here...could you tow it with a dolly...yes...but is it against the law..YES and the LAW protects you from hurting yourself,others, and property.
I hope this answers your question. and please be safe. (dont do it)

AWD not working


Did you know that there is a fuse under hood on Passenger side that I have seen people put the fuse in the missing spot. Problem is it is only for towing the car. Remove if fuse is present and see if it fixes your problem.
