Are you talking about it going in to automatic all wheel drive, where the system automatically detects slippage? Then applies power to slipping wheel? If you have 4X4, with a shifter, you don't have that. AWD means no driver input. 4X4 means you manually shift in to 4-wheel drive. What switch are you 'changing'?

Or am I getting this all wrong and you can't get it in to 4 wheel drive? Is the switch in this image? Can you describe it, or if you have image software draw an arrow to it? click to size up
