AWD Disable Warning Light

Came on for no reason this morning. Car has been sitting all night, just started it up to run an errand, and the warning light came on. There is no spare tire, nothing is different. I drive this car approximately 5 miles a day. Bought it used last year from a local dealership.

2003 Buick Rendezvous, 84000 miles. Has been a great car up until this silly problem.

Reinflate your tires to the proper pressure and this usually goes away. I have had this quite a few times and the dealers will try to talk you into all sorts of problems that they can fix and replace stuff including rear ends for $$$. Do you even go places where all wheel drive is that important? It has never caused a real problem in mine.

Warning light check engine light turns on, sometimes after 10-20 minutes drive. The engine is perfectly OK. Indicator light is off after the car has "rested" during the night.


You may have a sensor malfunction. Have a mechanic run the codes and see if there are any stored in the computer. Just because the engine runs OK now does not mean it will continue to do so. The reason the light goes off after the vehicle has set over night may be due to the vehicle not sensing the issue after the long passage of time, until you begin driving again.

Battery warning light was on this morning , and for several miles altrnated between being on and off. After several miles it got dimmer and finally turned off. Car seemed to run all right though.


Replace the battery. The batter is on it's last leg and is about to die. The reason the light went off is because as you drive, the alternator provides charge to the battery. So the further you go, the more charged the battery becomes. That said, if the Battery warning light was on when you started the car, and you had not left any interior lights on over night, then the battery is losing charge rapidly or is not holding a charge.

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
