Thanks. I felt something had to be said. I've received
about 25 emails asking me about it, where information can
be found and what FTE's position was on it.

Along these lines, what I said was true. Freedom of
speech is alive on FTE. If you disagree with me, go
ahead and state your opinion. I get hot-headed and
opinionated sometimes, but I don't remove people from
our services for disagreeing with me. Heck, sometimes
a good debate is fun!

Ken

I'm not a mechanic, but if these things work the way I think it's
unlikely the transfer case has anything like a clutch that could
engage or disengage to give those systems. (It can add the front end
so you're in 4x4, but it can't disengage all the wheels, I don't
think.)

It's probably something in the transmission itself, or, perhaps, in
the control system for the transmission.

I'd go back and have them dig into it!

Later,
Alan

Alain,

Please pardon my mistake. The T-case is connected to the
rear wheels at all times unless it is put in neutral (if
available). The coupling to the front wheels happens via an
electric signal sent to a shift motor or manual shift
linkage.

Regards

I started working for Ciba Corning Diagnostics in 1992, they were bought and
changed names to Chiron Diagnostics in about 1995. I worked for them until
last year.
