Hello All; - from Western Australia

Hello, you lot i am from Western Australia, and drive a WH G/C Hemi, which we (wife and self)tow a 2.5 tonne caravan around Australia. Bought the vehicle second hand with 35,000 klms. Now have 80,000 and most of this with the van in tow. The vehicle is idealy suited to this job, and never goes lacking in power, or breaks for that matter. - Of course it goes without saying - it is ALWAYS looking for a drink; - 23.28 liters per 100klms. or (10.23 MPG US) average at 100klms per hour over 30,000 klms.
Until today it has been trouble free: - the 'front diff soleniod' has 'open-circuited' and needs to be replaced.
Maybe some of you have experienced this problem - I would be interested to know?

Jumpy

Re: Hello All; - from Western Australia

G'day. I just got back from a 3 week trip to Sydney and Kangaroo Island. Could hardly get my wife to get on the plane to come home. One of these trips we're going to make it out to WA.

Your WH most likely has QuadraDrive II - this 4WD system has an electrically operated clutch pack in each differential (axle), these devices engage when you lose traction, providing power to both left and right wheels. Sounds like the solenoid that activates the clutch pack in the front diff is bad and needs replaced.
