All-wheel Drive Disabled and Fault Indicator Symbols

All Wheel Drive DisabledAWD Malfunction IndicatorThese are All-wheel Drive (AWD) Disabled Indicator symbols. This light flashes when the AWD system is disabled temporarily and remains on when there is a malfunction in the system. The open circles indicate the disconnection of the AWD system.


If a wrench is shown alongside the caricature of a vehicle’s undercarriage, it indicates a fault and nothing else. Malfunctions may be indicated by the system before a real problem is obvious, but don’t waste time. See your dealer or authorized service center soon, as AWD repairs are expensive and continued use will increase the likelihood of serious damage.
