Asked by Dec 23, 2014 at 09:54 PM about the Lexus RX 350

Question type: General

I have a Lexus RX-350 - 2011 & had left the car on the driveway for 6 days. When I came back from vacation, the car starts OK BUT gives me exactly what is shown above (another owner's question!):
"What is happening to have the "Check AWD system" message on along with the light showing car & slippery road & check engine light on. car seems to be running just fine"
I tightened the fuel cap really good BUT the messages don't go away ??Could it be the Battery problem ? Any comments, will be appreciated !!

The computer detected a fault in the AWD system, it could be a bad wheel speed slip sensor or something a internal clutch failure in the transfer case. You need to have the codes checked before you can go much further.
