The AWD system delivers power to all four wheels and the system adjusts as needed to improve traction.

The AWD Mode will stay selected until the mode is changed.
When operated in Front-Wheel Drive (FWD).
Mode, the vehicle will deliver power to the front wheels only and may provide better fuel economy.
A system off message displays when there is a temporary condition making the AWD system unavailable. The vehicle will run in FWD.
This could be caused by:.
● A compact spare tire on the vehicle.
● AWD system overheat.
● Loss of wheel or vehicle speed.
● Certain other vehicle electrical conditions.
The message turns off when the compact spare tire is replaced by a full-size tire, the differential fluid cools, or the above conditions are no longer present and the warning message is reset.
To reset the warning message manually, turn the ignition off and then back on again after 30 seconds. If the message stays on, see your dealer.
