Transfer case problem
Hi, im new here to the kia forum and looking for some info to repair my wife's 04 sorento AWD. Recently it started dragging/hopping the inside rear tire at low speeds. I assumed the posi unit in the diff was toast, but found the issue seems to be in the T-case. If i unplug one of the main plugs on the t-case the problem goes away but the service 4wd light comes on and the awd does not work. Is there some sort of clutch pack in the transfer case that needs to be replaced? a viscous coupling? Or do i likely have a module/controller bad somewhere applying power when it shouldn't be? I figure im probably going to have to bite the bullet and buy a service manual sooner or later seeing as how the wife wants to keep this thing a while, so if anyone can recommend a good place to buy one that would help also.
