Check the fuse behind the drivers strut top in the engine bay, pulling it puts the car in fwd mode, so if its blown the central diff will drop out of awd. Hope this helps, its a red 4 amp fuse, standard blade type.

How does the 4wd lock work on awd 2013 kia sportage


Its automatic. AWD is different than 4WD. AWD keeps all the wheels working independently. Where 4WD keeps all wheels working no matter what. No need to worry about anything on an AWD set up. Speed doesnt matter, however in my opinion stopping and letting it kick in or out is best. Just in case a part acts up it wont do anything odd at high speeds.

I posted about my AWD quit working on my 1990 Astro AWD.


What makes a car AWD is the fact that there is a diff in the transfer case in the gear box . This allows the front diff and the back diff to operate at different speeds from the road surface just as one wheel can go faster in turns than the other side.. To say that the AWD is not working would mean that it is not going any where as the rear or the front will have no drive because the diff will not be operating as a diff.

2wd vs AWD


Page 13 of owner's manual says:
AdvanceTrac
(if equipped):
Illuminates when the AdvanceTrac
system is active. If the light remains
on, have the system serviced
immediately.
AWD locked (if equipped):
AWD
Illuminates when all wheel drive
LOCKED
(AWD) is engaged/activated. If the
light continues to flash, have the
system serviced.

Page 224:
ALL WHEEL DRIVE (AWD) SYSTEM (IF EQUIPPED)
Your vehicle may be equipped with an All Wheel Drive (AWD) transfer
case. With the AWD option, power is supplied to all four wheels
automatically with no need to shift between two-wheel drive and
four-wheel drive. If your vehicle is equipped with the AdvanceTrac
stability enhancement feature, you can change AWD modes, if desired,
by selecting AWD options through the message center.
For the lubricant specification and refill capacity of the AWD transfer
case refer to Maintenance and specifications chapter.
If your vehicle is equipped with AWD, a spare tire of a different
diameter than the road tires should never be used. Such a tire
could make the vehicle difficult to control as well as result in damage
to driveline components.
Utility and four-wheel drive vehicles are not designed for
cornering at speeds as high as passenger cars any more than
low-slung sports cars are designed to perform satisfactorily under
off-road conditions. Avoid sharp turns or abrupt maneuvers in these
vehicles.
The following sections, Normal operation, Autolock operation and
Disabling AWD, apply only to vehicles which allow the driver to change
AWD modes through the message center.
Normal operation (vehicles equipped with AdvanceTrac
During normal operation:
• the AWD system is in AWD AUTO mode (AWD LOCKED will
illuminate in the message center for four seconds when you first start
your vehicle). The AWD LOCKED indicator in the instrument cluster
will also come on.
• AWD AUTO mode can be overridden by pressing SETUP in the
message center. When you first press SETUP, AWD <AUTO> will be
displayed, then if you press RESET within four seconds of pressing
SETUP, AWD <LOCKED> will be displayed. AWD <LOCKED> provides
power to all four wheels constantly which allows you to operate your
vehicle in severe winter or off-road conditions such as deep snow, ice
or shallow sand. It is not recommended that you use AWD <LOCKED>
on dry pavement.

Page 225:
• AWD <LOCKED> can be cancelled by pressing RESET in the message
center. (The AWD LOCKED display in the message center will then
turn off and the display will return to AWD <AUTO> for four seconds
when the shift is complete.)
Autolock operation (vehicles equipped with AdvanceTrac
If the AWD system begins to overheat, the system will place itself in the
Autolock mode:
• the AWD LOCKED indicator light will illuminate in the instrument
cluster and AWD DISABLED <LOCKED> will be displayed in the
message center.
• AWD LOCKED will be displayed in the message center for four
seconds and a warning chime will sound. This condition may clear
without any action being taken by the driver.
• the AWD LOCKED indicator light in the instrument cluster will turn
off when the AWD system cools down.
• When the system is sufficiently cooled down, AWD AUTO RESTORED
will appear in the message center for four seconds and a warning
chime will sound.
Disabling AWD (vehicles equipped with AdvanceTrac
When a problem is detected in the AWD system:
• the AWD LOCKED indicator light in the instrument cluster will flash
eight times every two minutes in the message center.
• The message center will then display AWD DISABLED for four
seconds, then SEE OWNER'S MANUAL. A warning chime will also
sound. The warning displays and chime will continue until RESET is
pressed (which will clear the message from the display).
• AWD LOCKED can still be engaged by pressing SETUP (the message
center will display AWD <DISABLED> LOCKED), then pressing
RESET. The AWD LOCKED indicator light will illuminate in the
instrument cluster and the message center will display AWD
DISABLED <LOCKED>.
• To disable AWD, press RESET. The system will go back to AWD AUTO
mode momentarily, then the AWD LOCKED indicator light will flash in
the instrument cluster eight times every two minutes. The display will
then show AWD <DISABLED> LOCKED for four seconds and then
turn off.

Page 226:
• If a serious problem occurs with the AWD system, the AWD LOCKED
indicator light in the instrument cluster will flash 10 times every two
minutes. The message center will also display CHECK AWD and a
warning chime will sound. You can press SETUP to check the status of
the AWD system (which will display AWD <DISABLED> LOCKED),
but the AWD system will be disabled until the system is serviced.
Driving off-road with truck and utility vehicles
AWD vehicles are specially equipped for driving on sand, snow, mud and
rough terrain and have operating characteristics that are somewhat
different from conventional vehicles, both on and off the road.
When driving at slow speeds off-road under high outside temperatures,
use 1 (First) gear when possible. 1 (First) gear operation will maximize
the engine and transmission cooling capability.
Under severe operating conditions, the A/C may cycle on and off to
protect overheating of the engine.

AWD isn't working - Only as a rear wheel vehicle


How do you know the AWD is not working? I own an 03 X type. If your AWD was not working on all 4 wheels the car would be undriveable. What is going on and why do U think only the back wheels are turning??

My AWD doesn't work. I have a broken wire on my


definately repair that wire. now keep in mind that that particular wire is called a shielded wire and you need to be clean and careful when you repair it. make sure it is water tight and protected. this wire is for the abs wheel speed sensor and with no reading, the abs is inoperable which will affect the awd. the abs and smart trac work in conjuction with each other to help you remain stable. cheers.

1991 AWD CARAVAN TRANSMISSION


Unfortunately, this will not work. it seems like a good fit but in my experience, i have had problem with synchronizing the FWD with the AWD assembly. the CPU will not work as well. tried it twice with no success. It will be best to just continue to hunt for a twin AWD assembly to replce the failed one.

AWD keeps shutting off


The AWD lock will only work up til approximately 7mph and then is programmed to turn off after that. It's primary purpose it to get you unstuck from a sitting position. You will see the AWD indicator light turn off once you're up to speed. If, however, while you're driving and your MO sense slippage, it will automatically engage AWD. You may not know it though as the AWD light does not turn on during that situation. If it does turn on, it is because it is warning you that there is a problem with your AWD, not that your AWD is working. So be happy that you don't see it lit while driving. The MO's AWD system is not meant to stay on permanantly as it is not designed strong enough for it. It's better than you don't use your AWD lock if not needed as it could later cause major failure with your transfer case. Repair costs....$6000 or more if you don't have a warranty.
