Default update

So third trip to the dealer for this problem! they say it is the transfercase shift motor and it is on back order. They say three weeks to get one. I asked them if it could be the final drive control module and my service writer said "he never heard of that part!"

that is the five position switch you have...you left out neutral. the fifth position is the 4auto setting, four positions do not have this setting

This time the dealer said it was a faulty engine coolant temperature sensor (they told me if this fault the computer would show a serv4wd). They replaced it, drove it for about 2000km with no problems.

Today, again 4wd light as soon as I shifted into 4wd, before even moving, and again it would not come out of 4wd. Dealer said the shift motor "actuator" was faulty and replaced again.

Very annoying! If this happens again I will have to bring up the drive train control module. Thanks for the thread!

Well it happened again, this time only a few days after the shift motor was replaced again. I took it to the dealer while the light was on and we went for a drive. I told the service guy about drive train control module, he didn't seem to care at the time.

So they keep the truck and call me and tell me they replaced the drive train control module! They told me that they had not had a truck with this problem so far. Anyways If any Canadians are interested the part number description was: Module 08-035-028, as per my work order.

I've run about three weeks and so far no problems, hopefully this will be the end of this.

On way home from sledding last weekend, the EVIC lit up like the Griswolds house at xmas! Had ESP/Serv 4wd warning, traction control warning, abs warning, park assist wouldn't turn on, transfer case wouldn't shift into 4 low... dealer traced it back to the rear wheel speed sensor. Though how that effects transfer case shfting I have no idea?? Perhaps it has a speed reading to avoid engaging at too high of ground speed?
Regardless, had parts in stock and fixed me up in an hour!!

Having same problem. I was booked in but things went back to normal - I pushed the N button the last time and it worked. But this time it's not doing anything so I'm thinking that the N button was a coincidence and maybe the change for the better had more to do with fluctuation in the weather which, btw, was snowy blowy when 4W wasn't working and sunny and wet when it was...go figure. Today it's colder again, and 4WD SERV is back staring at me. Maybe there's a connection, maybe not - but from what I'm reading here it sounds like it's the module, regardless.

Glad I came here, now I'm armed with valuable information when it goes to the dealership. Of course, for the most part, ya can't tell a guy at the service counter what to look for, because they're the experts. Great thing about smart phones; I can bookmark this forum and shove it in his face (after telling him I don't have time to dick around). Ya, that'll work...

Cheers!
