2008 Kia Sorento Switching itself into 4Wheel Drive

Asked by Nov 14, 2016 at 12:56 PM about the 2008 Kia Sorento EX

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

We recently took my car on a road trip and it has been switching itself into 4
wheel drive on its own. Does anyone know how or why this is happening? Or
know how to fix it? It makes a loud Clunking noise and the tires get tight when it
happens. We have been having to switch 4 wheel drive on and then off to get it
to stop.

Just a guess but there may be a bad relay or a short in the 4WD switch.
