Wheels locking up when turning sharply left or right

I have a 2004 Buick Rainier CXL. A couple of days ago I began to experience the problem described below. This only occurs when making sharp ( 90 degree) turns such as pulling out of a driveway or pulling into a parking spot.

Could be one of several problems in the rear diff.
It depends if its the optional locking rear diff and it's stuck locked, or it is the limited slip and something inside caused it to lock.

See a mechanic before you do more damage.

Where is automatic light switch on my 2004 buick rainer cxl model suv


There is no switch, they are automatic. There is a sensor mounted on the top of dashboard that senses light, which tells headlights to turn on.

2004 Buick Rainier four wheel is stuck in AWD drive all the time .


All wheel drive is just that-- All wheel drive-- not to be confused with 4 wheel drive . The difference is with AWD there is a 3rd diff in the transmission that allows the front and rear wheels to operate at different road speeds . When 4wd is selected that 3rd diff is locked and so both front and rear wheels drive at the same speed regardless of ups and downs in the road surface . This results in a torque wind up in the drive train and places load on "U" joints --splines --CV joints and gear teeth . The grinding on turning corners will be the CV joints trying not to flex because of the torque wind up . How to prevent this problem=== Do not use 4wd on hard road surfaces === as the tyres cannot slip to relieve the torque Restrict the 4wd use to snow , mud and loose surfaces TO fix the problem unselect 4wd drive and reverse several yards to release the pressure in the drive train and the actuator has a chance to pull the gear out of lock up. If that doesn't work check that the actuator is actually working
