Hi, anyone know if Nissan's version of traction control, so called active brake lsd, is only on the rear diff or both? Dealer has no idea.

What use is a dealer that does not know their car??!!?!??! That is astounding.

try the Nissan website. It seems like it works on all wheels

Thanks, the web site does not really mention the active brake lsd operation (as far as I can see), they do talk about vdc, but I'm more interested in the traction control options when in low range - when you would want vdc off.

This is only a guess, but other manufacturers have used the ABS in reverse to brake a spinning wheel and give the other wheel on the diff some drive.
Problem is, if the motor is not powerful enough, you can find yourself up to the wheelarches in sand.
Ask any diesel disco driver with the unlockable transfercase model.

You also burn off a bit of torque throughincreased use of the brakepads. These systems are good, but no substitute for a locker.

The only advantage they have is they are easier on the drivetrain, possibly allowing them to use smaller components than if they had open diffs/locking diffs.

Good system for Rangies :-)
