Just Traded Up - Now New Problem...
So after looking at ways for my wife and I to make our 06 Laredo w/ 3.7L V6 to be more tow worthy, we found a great deal on a one owner, 06 Limited with 4.7L and towing package. It has been well cared for and has 57K miles on it. The one thing I did not check before buying was the 4wd Low range. On the way home pulled into a parking lot to try it. As soon as the lever is pulled, get a "Service 4WD System" message on the EVIC. It doesn't do anything and I can't hear the actuator do anything either. Are frozen actuators common? I haven't found a lot of conclusive information on this failure mode. It drives great other than this issue. I used my Snap On scanner, and can't get any VDTC's pulled as there seems to be an issue geting the vehicle codes over CAN with my scanner. Waiting on a call from the dealer as they have a 30 day warranty on all major components on their used vehicles. Any experience on this would be helpful.
