Hi, if your vehicle is 4wd then the problem your having is going to be that one of the bearings have collapsed inside the differential, if this is the case then please get this looked at sooner rather than later as you could destroy the gearbox and propshaft witch would then cost a fortune to repair.

If on the other hand its not 4wd then it could be one of 2 things it could be that the brake shoes have collapsed and needs replacing or it could be that one of the wheel bearings have collapsed on one of the back wheels and will need replacing asap as it could seize up causing an accident and leaving you car un drivable ok.

Let me know how you get on or if you need further assistance ok

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

I finally received the answer to this problem with my '06 Rainier CXL. The front gear pack (in mine) needs to be replaced. Vehicle is driving AWD, all the time. Expensive repair- $1600. Mine has 93+K miles, the engine is in awesome condition. To repair or not to repair... that is my struggle.

Every time the steering wheel is turned sharply to either side I hear a kind of cranking sound what seems like it is coming from the steering shaft.


Most sounds while turning (grinding, clicking, clunking, etc) indicate bad CV joints. I'd get this looked at ASAP...

Check to make sure te leveling switches by each wheel are working properly. There is a small link from each control arm that connects to the switch. These may be out of adjustment or broken. Also check all your air hose connections, it is most likely a bad O-ring or cracked fitting.

Wheels locking up when turning sharply left or right


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.
