By inserting the fuse you are disengaging the rear wheel drive.  This is done by activating a solenoid.  In time, the solenoid will burn out and cost you even more money.  This option is available in case you have a flat tire in the rear and you put on a small spare tire.  If you did not disengage you rear end, the differential would burn out, (or at least drive poorly)

VERY GOOD GUIDANCE AS SEVERAL LOCAL TRANSMISSION SHOPS WANTED TO DO A TEAR DOWN AND LEARN OFF OF MY DOLLAR.



I ALWAYS SEEK TO FIND THE PROBLEM BEFORE I GIVE A SHOP A JOB.



I INSTALLED THE FUSE AS DESCRIBED.



CAN I CONTINUE TO USE THE VEHICLE AS A 2 WHEEL DRIVE UNTIL I FIND TIME TO HAVE A TRAINED SHOP TO DO THE REPAIRS?



MY ACTUAL TRADE IS ACCIDENT RECONSTRUCTION WHERE I FOOUS ON PRE COLLISON MECHANICAL CONDITIONS.
