Question type: Maintenance & Repair

My 2006 sorrento xe occasionally shifts into 4 wheel drive on its own. What is causing
this to happen?. Tyres are good all round but fronts have more tread than rears, could this
be the problem?

Try putting the front tires on the back and the back tires on the front and see what happens.

Cheers Mark. Have got new rears now and see what happens, don't think this is the problem as my car has manual 4 wheel drive switch to select either 4 wheel high or 4 wheel lo or 2 wheel drive which is the position for normal on road use.Its when in 2 wheel drive that car goes into 4 wheel drive could it be the solenoid switch on the transmission that is faulty or possibly the vacuum pipes that operate the transfer box?

Try the vacuum lines first. See if that's the problem. Then the solenoid.
