AWD disabled, why


Wheel sensor/bearing bad, wire by the bearing broken,ABS module bad, bad ground wire for the ABS pump, ABS pump bad, The actuator/switch in the rear differential is bad, the wire for the rear switch is broken, the clutches in the rear differential are worn out. No oil in the rear differential (which trashes out the differential). And the fuses could be blown. I think I have covered all of it. From older ones to newer ones.

I assume you replaced the input and output speed sensors on the transmission?

The speed sensor for the speedo is located in the rear differential. Look on top of the center of the rear differential and you should see a sensor bolted to it with two wires. Check the wiring harness to the sensor. Sometimes they rub through on the E-brake cables. If the wiring is good replace the sensor in the rear differential.

I HAVE A 2002 JEEP LIBERITY AND I HAVE CHANGED THE SPEED SENSOR THAT IS THE IN AND OUT PUT AND I HAVE ALSOME THE INE ON THE DIFFERENTIAL AT THE BACK OF THE MOTOR AND RESET IT. BUT THE ENG. CHECKS LIGHT...


If you have changed the transmission input and output sensors and the sensor in the differential, I would look the the electrical connector on the differential. I ran into this a lot on the Libertys. The Differential sensor is your speed sensor, so that is the area to look. If the electrical connector is ok, look at the differential fluid. If it is grey, then the sensor is picking up metal particals for the oil and something is wrong in your rear end. Gears, ABS reluctor ring, bearings, etc. Hope that this help.

Best of luck

Rear cluch not working


Depends on what model and components you have:

{ ...
ENGINE TORQUE DISTRIBUTION – DIRECTING THE FLOW OF POWER
In an all-wheel-drive vehicle, engine power can be directed to all four wheels. Subaru Symmetrical AWD differs slightly from model to model in how it directs power to the wheels, depending on its transmission.

MODELS WITH FIVE-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION – CONTINUOUS ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: A viscous-type locking center differential and limited-slip rear differential help distribute torque – normally configured at a 50/50 split front to rear. If wheel speed differs between front and rear axles, the center and/or rear differentials lock up to help distribute power to the wheels with the most traction.

MODELS WITH FOUR-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSIONS – ACTIVE ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: An electronically controlled variable transfer clutch and limited-slip rear differential distribute power to where traction is needed. Sensors monitor parameters such as wheel slippage, throttle position, and braking to help determine torque distribution and direct it to the wheels with optimum traction.

MODELS WITH FIVE-SPEED AUTOMATIC TRANSMISSION – VARIABLE TORQUE DISTRIBUTION ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: As with Active All-Wheel Drive, an electronically controlled variable transfer clutch distributes power, but through a planetary-type center differential and a viscous-type limited-slip rear differential. Torque distribution is normally configured at a performance-oriented rear-wheel-biased 45/55 split front to rear. Sensors monitor the same parameters as for Active All-Wheel Drive.

WRX STI, WITH SIX-SPEED MANUAL TRANSMISSION – DRIVER CONTROLLED CENTER DIFFERENTIAL (DCCD) ALL-WHEEL DRIVE: The STI uses an electronically managed multi-plate transfer clutch and a mechanical limited-slip differential in conjunction with a planetary-gear-type center differential to control power distribution between the front and rear wheels. Featuring manual and three automatic modes, DCCD is normally configured at a 41/59 split front to rear. Sensors monitor parameters such as wheel slippage, steering angle, throttle position, and braking to help determine torque distribution and direct it to the wheels with optimum traction. DCCD also features a limited-slip helical front and Torsen® rear differential. ... }

And what are the symptoms? How do you know the coupling to the rear is not working?

Hi


To start with check the Speed Sensor on the front and rear. Usually the issue is with the rear speed sensor which can be replaced easily and will cost you around $25-$40.
There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the Speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) Remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) Remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) Remove metal speed sensor cover
d) Remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure. Once the speed sensor has a small gap between it and the rear differential housing, insert a flat-blade screwdriver and gently apply upward pressure while gently twisting speed sensor back and forth.
e) Disconnect speed sensor from speed sensor cable
f) Lubricate new sensor with WD-40, insert into rear differential housing. It will NOT go in all the way by hand, so do NOT force it nor hit it with anything made out of metal.
g) Replace metal speed sensor cover
h) Insert speed sensor bolt and tighten LIGHTLY until a small amount of pressure is felt. Tap speed sensor with rubber hammer until it pops into housing. Finish tightening of speed sensor bolt.
i) Replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) Disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable

Please do accept the solution if the issue is resolved or else revert for further assistance.


Thanks

Abs light and brake light came on wont turn back off


There is a sensor at the top of the rear differential for the ABS system. That sensor went bad and replacing it took care of the problem. What caused mine to go bad was apperantly water got into the differential when launching and loading my boat. check to see if gear lube needs to be replaced also.
The answer above is perfectly correct. When the ABS sensor on the diff goes bad the speedo no longer will work, the odometer stops recording mileage and both brake and ABS light comes on. You also loose O/D or "Lock-up" in the torque converter. The sensor is inexpensive and can be changed in about 30 mins. Good Luck!
I second the second answer :) My ABS light was on, my BRAKE light was on, my CHECK ENGINE light was on, my SPEEDOMETER wouldn't work below 35 mph, then quit working alltogether. Once the speedomenter quit working the odometer and cruise control quit working. I replaced the rear differential mounted speed sensor ($33) and then reset the CHECK ENGINE light by disconnecting the positive battery cable for a couple of minutes. EVERYTHING then worked.
Replace rear differential speed sensor as follows:
a) remove parking brake cable bracket (1/2" socket)
b) remove speed sensor bolt (9/16" deep socket)
c) remove metal speed sensor cover
d) remove speed sensor from rear differential housing (use channel lock pliers, twist gently back and forth while applying upward pressure.

i) replace brake cable bracket, replace 1/2" nut and tighten
j) disconnect positive battery cable for 2 minutes, reconnect positive battery cable
h) start vehicle, enjoy,

YOU WILL NEED TO HAVE ABS DIAGNOSED. IT IS MORE THAN LIKELY AN ELECTRICAL FAULT OR COMM PROBLEM. POSSIBLY ECU OR A SPEED SENSOR.
