Question about 2005 Nissan Murano
AWD only appears in AWD LOCK .. the AWD light goes out frequently while driving
The AWD lock will only work up til approximately 7mph and then is programmed to turn off after that. It's primary purpose it to get you unstuck from a sitting position. You will see the AWD indicator light turn off once you're up to speed. If, however, while you're driving and your MO sense slippage, it will automatically engage AWD. You may not know it though as the AWD light does not turn on during that situation. If it does turn on, it is because it is warning you that there is a problem with your AWD, not that your AWD is working. So be happy that you don't see it lit while driving. The MO's AWD system is not meant to stay on permanantly as it is not designed strong enough for it. It's better than you don't use your AWD lock if not needed as it could later cause major failure with your transfer case. Repair costs....$6000 or more if you don't have a warranty.
