My SERV/4X4,ESP/BAS Warning Light Comes On Intermittently and then goes away upon vehicle turned off and back on.
There was also a "gurgle" at around 1500 RPM at top gear.
1.I took it into dealer today and they claim that there was a software update and it should clear the SERV/4X4 warning light problem.
2.They claim that they could not reproduce the "gurgle" either idling or on road test.
Since i drove it home tonight, a distance of 30KM, that noise is gone so far. I will report back either way at a later date.

The gurlgle or "grrt - grrt" noise in top gear around 1500 rpm is common here. I get it sometimes when not in tow mode, and always in Tow mode towing our trailer.

I recall from the other threads on this it was metal shield vibrating on the exhaust or manifold or something, can't remember :doh: someone will correct me...anyway not a serious problem, just annoying.

Can't say on the SERV 4x4 message, I got it once last winter on a really cold morning, never happend again, and the dealer said there was no codes showing. wonder what this software update you got fixed?

And welcome to the group :smileup:

Thank you for your input and your welcome wishes. Your input and experience puts my mind at ease and this forum hopefully will do the same for all that subscribe to it. Its a great place

You are right in that i really didn't notice any degradation in performance or function. Just was an annoying noise and i was actually ignoring it till i saw that "SERV/4x4" warning light coming on numerous times and ithought it may have been related. So i then took it to the dealer.

I drove the truck all day and i have not seen the warning light or experiences the "gurgle" at around 1500 RPM. So maybe this control module software update had something to do with that too? I am not sure and maybe i am premature in saying all is fixed. The service work order just states:
"Scan for codes found control module update
Update final drive control module"
Again, thanks for your response.
