Just a quick question :

I have had my Colorado for about 3 yrs. and everytime I engage the 4 WD by pressing a button (4 H) I have images of, one day, making a mistake and accidently pressing the " 4L " button while bowling along. Please can anybody tell me if there is an interlock that prevents the electronics from engaging 4L if the wheels are turning? My old Rodeo was " fool proof" in this regard as one had to move the transfer case lever past a gate.

Responses are much appreciated,

Jerry.

Greetings Peter and thank you for responding. The instruction manual says nothing on this issue but it goes into detail about disengauging the drive for vehicle towing !!

Hi Jerry

The colorado will not go into low unless in neutral, so hitting the 4L button will do nothing.

Try it at low speed or not stopped and in neutral, I have, it will not happen.

Cheers
David

Thank you David. What you say sounds good to me. When I've put it in 4L the vehicle has been stopped but I'll try to see, at very low speed , to see what happens.

Cheers and beers,

Jerry.

Done, Done, Done ! David.

Tested out the buttons and the vehicle will not go into 4L without the gears in neutral. The indicator light on the dash flashes much faster than usual for some time then goes out with the 4WD light off.

As the ad' says ... " I feel so much better now "

Cheers ,

Jerry.
