The vehicle may also exhibit an AWD fault warning and/or traction control light on. Inspect the 12A690 (1.5L) or 12C508 (2.0L) wiring harness from the battery junction box to the PCM for wiring harness retainers not installed correctly, allowing chafing to occur at multiple points. Repair damaged wiring as needed.
