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,

What is winter mode


Andrew, in automatic equipped vehicles with winter/wet mode selection, I believe it starts vehicle off in a higher gear to prevent wheel spin. Your manual should explain what winter/wet mode is.
Check the attached links,instruction and guides, Good luck

found this info: "The available 4-speed automatic features a winter mode. When it's engaged, the transmission starts out in third gear to prevent wheelspin on icy or snowy surfaces. The transmission also has a power mode that gives better acceleration by raising up-shift points. Both modes are controlled by well-placed pushbuttons in the center console."

My winter and power button on my 2000 honda passport are stuck and it is ingaged in winter mode how do i fix that


Possible that the buttons are sticking or there is a switch failure on the panel which has made this to be caught in postion. If you are not able to use force to change then it can be that the button is stuck along with the base, use of a degreasing spray can help. Try using WD 40 . If not remove this panel and try before we can think of replacing.

What are the winter and power buttons for on the center console below the hand brake.


Those buttons are similar to traction control on some newer vehicles. The winter button causes less torque to be transfered to your tires all at once therefore reducing the chance of spinning. The power button allows all torque to be applied to you tires more for pulling a trailer or normal summer driving.

I need to know what the power drive and winter drive buttons are for on a 1998 isuzu rodeo


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.

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.

Automatic transmission "s" and "w" buttons


Hello there.

The W/S mode button stands for Winter and Standard. Winter mode increases torque and thus adherence when starting. I believe that under normal conditions, standard mode is to be prefered as it improves acceleration and makes the ride more comfortable.

The ACR button inhibits the electronic drive assistance. This again might be necessary when driving under certain winter-conditions (snow, ice), but should normally be let active.
