How to disable awd on 04 chevy venture


I don't think you can disable all wheel drive. All 4 wheels work in harmony to drive the vehicle. Lift one wheel off the ground and try to drive, It will not move.

How to permanently disable 4 wheel drive in 2001 Durango. Can I drive the car with the front shaft removed?


yes
if the car is all wheel drive you will have to engage center diff lock
if ordinary 4 wheel drive there will be no problem because if you have it in 2 wheel drive high it is the same thing as having no front drive shaft installed

Why does my 4 wheel drive not work all the time?


Elaine,

not work, do tell what makes you think it dont work (a lamp) or tires slipping or dead tires. (by tires mean that and traction)??????????

what mode fails, of the many, and where.???????



first off, we dont know what your tires are touching.

on road, or off road. pavement or ICE or snow.

that matters big time . (you read manual and match MODE to Road)

your lost operators guide explains all that, right?

eg: how and when to use, 4wd, its all there. I promise.

ControlTrac 4-wheel-drive system



here are the mode. which one , gives you problems.



quote ford with comments.



What are the modes, and how do they differ?

(note this is the operational behavior of a 2008 Ford Expedition. Newer and older Expeditions will vary only slightly)



2H 2-wheel-drive with high range gearing (1.00:1) Rear-wheel-drive capability,

2-wheel electronic traction control system is enabled



4A 4-wheel-drive Auto with high range gearing (1.00:1) Full-time all-wheel-drive capability, ((best on pavement or any time)

Electronically adjusted torque split to front & rear wheels, Electronically variable center differential,

Front driveshaft & rear primary driveshaft allowed rotational speed difference,

4-wheel electronic traction control system is enabled



4H 4-wheel-drive with high range gearing (1.00:1) Part-time 4-wheel-drive capability, (not for dry pavement EVER)

Continuous 50/50 torque split to front & rear wheels, Electronically locked center differential,

Front driveshaft & rear primary driveshaft mechanically locked with no rotational speed difference,

4-wheel electronic traction control system is enabled



4L 4-wheel-drive with low range gearing (2.64:1) Part-time 4-wheel-drive capability, (off road usage, mostly)

Continuous 50/50 torque split to front & rear wheels, Electronically locked center differential,

Front driveshaft & rear primary driveshaft mechanically locked with no rotational speed difference,

4-wheel electronic traction control system is enabled, ESC and RSC are disabled



In 4A mode the center differential is electronically-controlled and rear drive wheel bias. The on-board computer monitors for any sign of rear drive wheel slip (loss of traction)

If loss of traction is detected, the center differential is told to send a share of the engine\'s torque to the front drive wheels. It will not let the front driveshaft turn at the same speed as the rear driveshaft.



What about traction management?

1997-2002 model Ford Expeditions offered an optional limited-slip rear differential (LSD). A conventional open rear differential was standard along with the conventional open front differential and the electronic locking center differential.

comment with out LSD, one tire can spin, on say ice.

but the other 3 tires dont, in full time.

Activate 4 wheel drive


Hi, you have all wheel drive in an Escalade, and is always active. You cannot disable it, as it has a viscous clutch in the transfer case, and always applies power to the front, and rear wheels. Thanks...Coop

1998 ford explorer awd make niose left front wheel, and when all 4 wheels are off the floor and in drive, left wheel apears to ingage and disingage from having power to it


Having owned a trans shop years ago,I would suggest you never engage the front wheels on a 4x4 or all wheel or run any vehicle, off the ground, that has drive axles and cv joints.
You may not have any problems,but without the wheels on the ground, it seems you do.
There is no true 4x4. Only one wheel drives in the front and rear,on any vehicle,except in theory.
Keeping in mind, that most veh have ABS Systems, that control drive and braking systems,your most likely disabling and confusing those systems,when it is off the ground.

Locked manual 4x4 now no acceleration or instrument panels. Changed shifter, all fuses, relays and can not get the truck out of all 4 wheel drive.


Many american vehicles will disable the instrument pannels when the vehicle is in 4-Lo. I'm not sure of the reason, but it is normal. I suspect that they do this to keep people from trying to attempt a personal best speed in Lo gear and causing problems to the 4x4 system. Once you take your vehicle out of 4 wheel drive, the speedometer ect. should work fine.

Cannot Disable the 4 wheel drive on my 2001Toyota Seqouoia


Not sure if this works with your car or not but it's worth a try.

Place in park
start motor
put foot on the brake
place car in neutral
If your car has a button marked 2wd push it. This should return you to 2wd mode
return car to park
turn off motor and remove foot from the brake.
BUT the best thing you can do is read your owners manual if you do not have one call your nearest Toyota dealer and ask for the service department and ask them how to put it back into 2wd
