2005 Freestyle AWD Malfunction Message 52,195 miles

I also have been having this message displayed. I would like some clarification for solution 2.

(there is a solenoid that activates the all wheel drive it's located on the front of the axle housing on the drivers side of transmission chances are that it needs replacing.)

I looked at my connections yesterday and noticed a solenoid on the rear axle that is on the front of the differential. You would have to remove the input shaft yoke to replace. Is this what you are talking about or is there one on the transmission.

What does it mean when my 2008 trailblazer LT stabilitrac service light comes on?


Service Stability System Message The message center displays the service stability system message when any one of many VSES-disabling DTCs is set. The EBCM sends a serial data message to the IPC requesting this display.
It means there is a problem an till you get it fixed the stability control system is disabled ! ( EBCM ) electronic brake control module Has detected a problem an set a DTC - diagnostic trouble code in it's memory an had the message displayed !
Vehicle Stability Enhancement System (VSES)
The vehicle stability enhancement system (VSES) provides added stability during aggressive maneuvers. Yaw rate is the rate of rotation about the vehicle's vertical axis. The VSES is activated when the electronic brake control module (EBCM) determines that the desired yaw rate does not match the actual yaw rate as measured by the yaw rate sensor.
The desired yaw rate is calculated by the EBCM using, primarily, the following inputs.
?€¢
The position of the steering wheel


?€¢
The speed of the vehicle


?€¢
The lateral, or sideways acceleration of the vehicle

The difference between the desired yaw rate and the actual yaw rate is the yaw rate error, which is a measurement of oversteer or understeer. When a yaw rate error is detected, the EBCM attempts to correct the vehicle's yaw motion by applying brake pressure to one or more of the wheels. The amount of brake pressure which is applied varies, depending on the correction required. The engine torque may be reduced also, if it is necessary to slow the vehicle while maintaining stability.
VSES activations generally occur in turns during aggressive driving. When braking during VSES activation, the pedal may pulsate. The brake pedal pulsates at a higher frequency during VSES activation than during ABS activation.

Got. A 2003 f150 4x4 got problems with 4 wheel drive locking in and stay in drive shaft turning front wheels not


Operationally vacuum shifts the front axle between 2WD and 4WD mode. The GEM ( Generic Electronics Module ) applies ground to the solenoid needed for the mode selected on the switch ( for ESOF ) or when the transfer case shift lever is moved ( MSOF ).The contact plates in the transfer case signal the GEM that the transfer case is engaged, and the Vacuum solenoids need to be activated ( either 2WD to 4WD or 4WD to 2WD ).

Lift and support the front of the truck so the front wheels are off the ground ( take safety precautions, chock wheels, jack stands, etc )
Key on, engage 4x4 and try to turn the front drive shaft.
- If it turns it is a problem with the transfer case.
- If it doesn't it is a front axle engagement problem ( this is what you seem to have, the transfer case is engaged and will drive the front shaft mine was a key on engine off test ).

- If the front drive shaft does not turn :
•With the truck running ( with front wheel back on the ground ), switch from 2WD to 4WD and back again, the vacuum shift motor should move the lever on the front axle.

-- If the vacuum shift motor does not move:
1.Check for vacuum on the lines while shifting between modes. Pink vacuum line is 2WD mode, Light Blue vacuum line is 4WD.
2.Check the fuses for the 4WD system and the solenoids.
3.Check the vacuum lines from the vacuum shift motor to the solenoids on the firewall.

4.Check the vacuum lines from the solenoids to the vacuum reservoir box behind the battery.
5.Check the vacuum reservoir box for cracks.
6.Typical solution is the vacuum lines ( to the solenoids or to the vacuum shift motor ) are cracked or the vacuum shift motor has a cracked diaphragm and has water in it.
7.Could be the shift plate contacts in the transfer case are corroded / not making good contact, and not activating the solenoids.

Usually the case is cracked vacuum lines from the solenoids, the next common is a cracked vacuum reservoir box, and 1 time I have seen the mount for the vacuum disconnect motor broken ( motor floating free so it could not push against the axle )

My '93 suzuki sidekick automatic transmission 4 wheel drive after warm up "overdrive off" starts flashing on and off and when on the drivetrain stops working


The O/D light's flashing means there is some kind of transmission trouble.

The codes are..


Trouble Code (1) Probable Cause
12 ............................... System Operation Normal
21 ..................... No. 1 Shift Solenoid Open Circuit
22 .................... No. 1 Shift Solenoid Short Circuit
23 ..................... No. 2 Shift Solenoid Open Circuit
24 .................... No. 2 Shift Solenoid Short Circuit
25 ............................. TCC Solenoid Open Circuit
26 ............................ TCC Solenoid Short Circuit
31 ............ Vehicle Speed Sensor Open Or Short Circuit
32 ................ Throttle Position Sensor Short Circuit
33 ................. Throttle Position Sensor Open Circuit
34 ................ Defective Park/Neutral Position Switch
36 .............. (2) No Signal-Both Vehicle Speed Sensors
(1) - Check listed component for probable cause. Also check wiring and connections of specified component.
(2) - No signal from both transmission and speedometer mounted vehicle speed sensors.

If a trouble code is present, OD OFF light will flash a trouble code. The number of flashes will equal first digit of trouble code. After a one second pause, second digit will be displayed. If more than one trouble code is present, next trouble code will be displayed after a 3 second pause. Smallest number trouble code will be displayed first. Trouble codes will be repeated.

Hope this gave you some insight on the issue.

Service 4 Wheel Drive Switch


this seems to be because either the connection to the solenoid is loose or faulty or the solenoid is not activating. the transmission control module sends a signal to the solenoid to activate it. you get the light because the ecm detected that there is a a problem with the circuit. this is due to the fact that there is a voltage value to the solenoid and it is out of operating parameters
