The winter drive button gears the transmission down so that it doesn’t spin when you take off from a dead stop in the snow and ice. It only activates by pressing and holding it when at a stop and then accelerating.

Power is for when you are hauling heavy loads. It holds a higher rpm before shifting to next gear giving you best hauling performance.

What does winter power button do?


I believe the winter power button makes it so your truck starts in 2nd gear instead of 1st gear to reduce slipping and gain traction... It might do other things with 4 wheel drive. The whole point is to give you a better chance in the snow,

When I start driving, the engine revs high and barely goes anywhere. it goes slowly up till 25mph and then is fine. It just started today


I believe '02 rodeo's have buttons for power mode and winter mode located between the shifter and the flip up console.You may have accidentally activated winter mode which cuts power to the drive wheels for driving in ice and snow.If so look on the instrument cluster and "winter mode" will be lit in green,simply push the button again to deactivate it while in PARK.Hope this helps ,good luck.

I don't know how to use the 4 wheel drive in my 97 Isuzo Rodeo. There are also two buttons one says power and one says winter. I'm not sure how to change the gear when the car is on. Help!


those buttons are for the transmission, power means that it will shift gears stronger with better take off and gear changes, winter is for slippery conditions it shifts smother and softer this way the truck wont loose control. some of these are automatic 4wheel drive the computer controls it, and some have a shifter on the floor with 2 wheeldrive then 4hi which is used in the snow and 4 low which should only be used to get unstuck or steep climb at low speeds.hope this helps.

I would like to know the answer to cindy-lou70's question too. I don't have an owner's manuel for my 98 Rodeo. How do I use the "winter drive button"?


Starts SUV from a "dead stop" in low gear to prevent wheel spin on slick roads like ice for say when you take off, disengages at 30 mph once engaged automatically.
