I rented a car to use in an area with sandy roads. I asked for 4WD but got a Chevy Traverse with AWD, which I was assured would be fine for where I was driving.
However, the AWD keeps turning itself off. Yesterday someone who saw me stuck in the sand showed me how to turn the Traction Control system off, which he said would keep the AWD from disengaging. But today, even with the TCS off, the AWD turned itself off. Luckily I didn’t get stuck, but can anyone tell me what the heck is going on and how to keep the AWD from turning off? The owner’s manual is no help.
