AWD dash light is staying on what is the diagnosis
sensors on each wheel are not delivering the correct signals....check the operation by testing and noting with an electrical tester...often wires are corrupted....kid you not, critters nibblin~
The old-style ABS "rings" can et corroded or lose a tooth, too. Replacing the rings and/or sensors can be a nightmare of broken rusty bits, so at this age I'd learn to live without ABS. Oops! You wrote AWD! In that case Rodney and i misread. If someone inserted a fuse (or other shorting wire) in the AWD/FWD fuse slot under the hood the AWD transfer case is electrically removed from the driveline. So check that. ABS wheel sensor issues will NOT affect the AWD operation....
