If the vehicle is made to be a AWD you cannot get it out of AWD unless you take off the front drive shaft

SOURCE: Grinding when turning right or left from a stopped position

Losing turning radius is normal for 4x4. The grinding can be from hidden rear emergency brakes in back of rear rotors. The front pads can make noise and the front hubs should be checked if you do decide on replacing the front brakes.

SOURCE: Rumbling & grinding under front end

Watch out! You might have a loose wheel! Check those wheel nuts. If not, a loose brake caliper, or last if not least, a bad wheel bearing. Don't drive it until you find out what the heck is wrong! Could be dangerous.

SOURCE: 2006 ford escape - abs and 4wd lights on yesterday

the grinding nose you heard was something rubbing on the rotor, bad brakes, caliper, after market wheels, etc. the pressure of a turn bends something enough to touch, this is produceing metal flake that attached to the magnetic sensor on the abs sending a light on because it couldn't read the tire position as it turned, it may have got blown off, washed off, but when it can read the tire again the light will go off, i would look into the grinding noise on cornering thats the cause of the problem. hope this helps

What is the engine displacement of the mercury mountaineer of the year 2001


Hey Diego,
It depends on which Mountaineer you have...
A 2WD is either a 4.0L or a 5.0L
A 4WD is a 4.0L
a AWD is a 5.0L

2006 wrench light is on


Powertrain Malfunction (Wrench) Warning Indicator (base instrument cluster)
The instrument cluster receives the powertrain status from the PCM over the high speed CAN. When a powertrain system concern is detected, the PCM sends the instrument cluster a command signal to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. If the 4WD control module detects a failure with the 4WD drive system, the 4WD control module sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator. On 4.6L engines, if the transmission control module (TCM) detects a failure with the transmission, the TCM sends a message to the instrument cluster over the CAN to illuminate the powertrain malfunction (wrench) warning indicator.
better have it checked !

Front axle won't engage is all wheel drive


If it is electronic shift i would say the 4wd actuator/motor is seized. I have come across this problem a lot. Once winter is over people don't use there 4wd. So the little motor sits for months and seizes. I recommend people turn the button every week just to keep it freed up. Same as a hand brake. If it's not used it gets seized.

What does it mean when dash shows 4x4?


If the 4wd light is blinking there is something wrong preventing the computer from using 4wd. check to see if there might be an abs code as well. we had a bad wheel bearing which also affected the wheel speed sensor that the suv needs to operate the 4wd/awd/abs correctly

2006 Mountaineer 4x4 light on awd stuck.


Have a shop diagnose the problem if you
have not purchased the factory diagnostic
manuals from Helm.Com
Don't know why you would think fluid change on
any part of the vehicle would do a thing
Have you not checked for codes
That is always the first thing you do even
without a MIL lamp on.

The advance trac and awd are not working correctly At start up my 2005 mercury mountaineer has the abs light on , after driving about 50 yards the awd lock light blinks several times then goes to awd...


You current issue is no different than any other
vehicle problem you have had since 1996 when
the OBD2 Systems came into being

You have a MIL Lamp on or check light as some people
call it

You should have checked fore codes immediately within a day
or so to at least know the codes & then googled them to get
some idea of the issues

You know that you have an ABS Braking System issue based on
your owners manual & your abiltiy to recognize Advance Trac etc

Have to have a shop diagnose that system with professional tools

With an AWD issue possible I wouldn't even use it until fixed

The trac control is ussually a bad wheel speed sensor or related
issue
