The 4X4 system on your vehicle is computer controlled , GEM module . generic electronic module . The four wheel drive mode switch is a low voltage input to the GEM module . The GEM energizes relay's to control the mode as depicted by input from the mode switch an torque on demand relay an someother inputs . Probably has DTC - diagnostic trouble codes stored in the GEM module .
Transfer Case -Automatic Four-Wheel Drive (A4WD) The automatic 4-wheel drive transfer case system consists of the following:

  • automatic 4WD indicator light
  • brake pedal position (BPP) switch
  • torque on demand (TOD) relay
  • front output shaft speed sensor
  • generic electronic module (GEM)
  • 4WD high indicator light

SOURCE: stuck in 4 wheel drive and wont come out.

hey there i cant tell you what you are missing but i can tell you how to disengage the front wheels . ok you have a vacum line that runs right under the battery and a line that comes up from the front diff. to the same place ( you may have to remove batt and batt tray to get full access to this) un bolt it and temporaly put batt and batt tray back in start it up and decompress this and see if it comes out .... you should here clunking noise if it goes back in ... if thats the case just pull that big vaccum line off .... to test get all four tires off the ground and have some one put it in drive but dont hit the gas it should turn on its own ...if that dont work check the cable that runs down to the differental

Bad grinding noise that actually binds up the vehicle so it won't go. Sound like brakes but have already replaced brakes, wheel bearings, front axle arms, new tires, and checked the gear, the awd light,...


The problem is likely the transfer case has locked up, the question is do you need it to continue to be an AWD vehicle? If not a simple solution is to remove the driveshaft from the transfer case to the front differential case. Takes maybe 15-20 minutes and there are no leakage issues by doing so. The vehicle will now be a rear-wheel only drive one. I recently did this to our own 2003 model and as the car stays in the south, there is no need for the AWD. The car performs as expected and that binding problem is gone.

Have 2007 Saturn Vue AWD . Makes a grinding noise from rearend when accelerating from stop sign in snowy,slippery conditions.


thats AWD, is your vehicle normally front wheel drive, theres no easy way for the transfer case to jump into AWD, mine does it to although mines a Expedition an its the front that kicks in.....The only thing you can do is keep a eye on fluid inside axle....
