Just bought a 96 rav4.need instructions about when and when not to engage the 4wheel button . 5 speed manual has the differental lock button on dash


Hi Ed, The 4 X 4 is selected after slowing to about 20 mph and is best deselected at standstill or very slow speeds. On occasions you may have to stop and reverse a short distance to get disengagement. The differential lock should be engaged in the same way as the 4 X 4. It should be used only if traction is lost and the vehicle loses traction with a wheel spinning free. Never use diff lock on hard top roads and always disengage as soon as possible. Regards John

Low traction light sometimes comes on.Weeks go by and it doesnot come on .Then all of a sudden low traction appears again


I have three 1997 Olds Cutlass's. They do it to! Nothing to worry about. They will do that in response to a bump, or washboard road driven over at a certain speed. The wheel speed sensor on each wheel tells the computer how fast each wheel is turning. If one wheel speed is faster than the other three, as when you hit a bump, the computer thinks it is loosing traction and flashes the light, and may or may not engage the ABS system to even up the speed on all four wheels.

Now if that light comes on, and STAYS on, that is another matter. It will only do that if a wheel speed sensor becomes faulty, and then the ABS light will override the traction light.

Drive on!!!

My 04 TrailBlazer LT popped up the Service 4WD light. I put it in 4WD this morning and had no problems. I went to lunch and put it on and it took a few minutes to switch and then the light came on. It...


MIne will do that only when I'm switching my 4WD to 4low or 4hi, or back to 2hi AND the TB has good traction, ie pavement or rock OR the tires are cranked to one direction. After my wheels are straight, I just turn the engine off, and turn it back on, then the light goes off. Mine won't do that if I'm in mud, snow, or dirt where there's no traction. My guess is that it may be binding when the traction is good, therefore, I shouldn't be in 4WD. Anyway, my 2cents and I don't think you have to worry about it.

Warning light on are trac off, anti-lock, brakes, service engine


You need to have the abs system scanned for codes. You likely have a bad wheel speed sensor on one of wheels.

98 oldmobile regency won't start up and check


Well the fact that the traction light came on and blinked off when taking off is a good thing, it just means that your traction control is working properly. When that light comes on it means that one wheel was spinning and that the car adjusted the speed of the drive wheels to compensate. The car not starting needs to be addressed as to whether the car is turning over slowly, clicking, or making no noise at all. The check engine light will remain on until the vehicle is started, so that does not correlate to your problem. If it clicks, or turns over sluggishly, then it just needs a jump start and a test of the battery. If the lights come on, but the car does not turn over al all, then you may need to look at replacing a starter.

07 Ford Traction Control


2 wheel drive refers to the rear wheels.
The traction control feature applies the brakes to the wheels that are spinning due to lack of traction so that they can slow down and get a grip or traction, if its in 2 wheel drive the system will pulse the brakes and you will hear and feel the system engage usually a buzzing vibration and an indicator light will come on the dash to tell you its engaged
