Disengaged? The AWD on your vehicle is computer controlled and only used when wheel slippage/ABS system detects your tires/wheels spinning. What issues are you really having with your SUV? Was your driveshaft removed?

Disabled is probably the better word. It kept malfunctioning so I took it to the shop 8 months ago and they said I really didn't need it so they disabled it. I have since taken it to another shop and they said it would be $900 to repair because their is metal in the fluid??? The is all foreign to me.

Is it even normal to disable the AWD. The shop I took it to said it shouldn't have been disabled in the first place.
