Maybe dealer removed the drive line to ensure it passes the 100 point inspection...

No one ever said it was a full-time AWD system.

Update... dealer has agreed to purchase and install used drive shaft. Obviously this is the first step to determine if anything else is wrong. Now I just have to stay on top of them to follow through and fix anything that ends up being wrong with it.

I bought this from a used dealer and come to find out the shop that "serviced" the vehicle never put it on the lift. I got the response that maybe someone stole it off the vehicle, which should give everyone a chuckle.

From what people say it sounds like i should hear if the TC is bad, so it makes me feel better since I don't hear anything. The clutch could be the issue. I'll give an update once I get them to complete the work.

Additionally we had another snow storm last night (really wish i had my AWD for this mornings commute) and the AWD, ABS, VDC OFF, and SLIP light illuminated. I'm assuming these came on because the vehicle was looking for AWD to work due to the road conditions.

Stolen auto parts.

Air bags? Plausible.

HIDs? Plausible.

Wheels? Plausible.

Stereo? Plausible.

Driveshaft?

We should have a "Wall of Shame" with memorable quotes from car dealers and service advisors.

AWD to 2WD - missing drive shaft

I am new to the thread, and I see that it's been inactive for some time, but in case some of you are still following this discussion, I am looking to do the same thing, that is, convert the car from AWD to 2WD for the purpose of dolly towing the MO behind an RV.

My approach would be to remove the drive shaft thereby rendering the rear wheels inactive (at least I think that would be the outcome).

Any comments from anyone on the viability of this approach? Is there anything else that should be done? Such as disabling the TC AWD clutch? Has anyone done this for this or other purposes?

Thanks, Mike.

I think you need to have a shop check it out.

The no AWD might be related to a bad ABS sensor, but you have other stuff going on as well.

Thanks!
