It is a really nice Friday evening. I had a beer on the way home. Picked up my daughter and we had the sunroof open and the pearl jam Sirius station blasting. I put it in sport mode and got on the gas a little. Rolled into a stop light and got the dreaded "service 4WD" message. Tried to accelerate, but it really wouldn't. Luckily I was able to pull off just past the corner.
Now the truck is making a really rumbily noise and is generally sounding very unhappy. The brake is super hard and shifting into gear is not wise since the brakes are so firm, it won't stop the truck.
I'm also getting a "service electronic throttle" message.
There was a distinct burning smell coming from the truck when I pulled over.
I called the roadside assistance and now I'm just waiting. Bummer. This doesn't sound like the other issues I've heard about with losing power. Hopefully it's a quick fix but I'm not optimistic. Only 1600 miles on her.
