Hi, I recently hit a road pothole with my vehicle and now I have a problem. I never use four wheel drive mode and the switch was off when I went over the pothole.
Checked four wheel drive drive shaft, it looks like the problem is coming from there.
Before the problem appeared, I knew the four wheel drive was always on because I tested and jacked the front of my vehicle while a friend took in the first gear with a bit of gas. Bad idea.
The drive shaft is rattling and fails every time I drive, the car is hard to move and four wheel drive! Dashboard light signal appears. Shaft fails but try to move the rear wheels for some reasons, I can hear and feel some shaking as I accelerate. I hear some cracking noise from the rear axle and the middle near the transmission.
4WD, ABS, ESP and traction control dash light always on.
The 4WD! Light appears flickering with beep sound after driving for ten seconds or less. The dashboard beeps every five minutes as I drive.
Loud crack noise can be heard at 0:22, 1:03,
(1:34 and 1:39 loud wank and crack noise while braking)
Rattling noise can be heard at 1:09 louder at 1:15
I never use four wheel drive mode and the switch was off when I hit the bump.
Thanks, let me know what you guys think, what is really causing the problem and why ABS, ESP and traction control lights appear?
Two problems? Wheel sensor with a failed shaft?
have the same problem?
