AWD light on


Asked by Irina_TLN Mar 18, 2019 at 06:27 AM about the 2014 Toyota RAV4

Question type: Maintenance & Repair

Hi there! I have my AWD light on since yesterday on a RAV 4 2016 with less than 100000 km. My problem is that I am in France and the Toyota engineers are dumb (I had a small issue with the radio and they wanted to replace the whole thing for 700 euros... the radio re-started in 7 days by itself ... bad connection). So I am afraid they will tell me to do some major repairs for strictly nothing. Any idea how should I make sure (or attempt to) there is no other (cheaper way) to deal with the thing?
Thanks a million!

Actually yesterday the light went off. So I don't have anything to show..:) I bought a product to clean the injection. Thanks for answering!

Check gas cap. I just paid $140 for diagnostic and gas cap. Grrrr!!!

If the gas cap is not on properly the Engine Light and AWD warning will come on. After the gas cap is put-on properly both indicators will go off; however, you have to drive the car for several days (don't know exactly how many miles} before it goes off.

The same exact thing just happened to me. I had gone to a full service station 3 days earlier when this happened, so the delay between what happened and the lights coming on was several days. I got lucky and found this forum, checked my gas wasn’t clicked. I fixed that, the light stayed on for 14 more hours, then just went off. Thanks everyone for the excellent advice!
