AUTO light always on. AWD switch failure?
The AWD "Auto" light was starting to flash on and off on the dash, intermittently, no matter where I put the switch. Meaning I will be driving and it will flicker on, then be off for awhile. But then it started getting more regular, and now it is constantly on all the time, no matter where I have the button position.
This seems different than the constantly flashing code.
It seems as thought the switch itself is failing. But I took it out, and apart and inspected it, and can't find anything wrong. I now have the switch disconnected completely, which has disabled the AUTO light, and I assume the AWD function.
For what other reason would the AUTO light be constantly on? What should I check next?
If it is still likely the switch, any good ideas on where to get one?
BTW, the vehicle has about 120,250 on it, if that helps.
Thanks for your insights.
