HI people.. I have a question about crv 4wd system.
Last night i had to enter the car into a parking building, and when i took the car out, the ramp has a high edge that trapped the right rear wheel (not SOOO high anyway.. ).
The crv was stucked with the wheel trying to climb the damn border XD

My question is: should the 4wd system turn on and help the Crv?
Did I do something wrong (beside fatal driving and accuracy, of course.. HEY! i´m a woman after all!! :D)?

I thought that CRV was going to climb up the border ´cause the other three wheels were on the floor and the 4wd systems was going to help. :mad:

4WD Kicks In When The Front Wheel Slip

The only time the 4WD engages is when the front wheels are turning faster than the rear wheels, which indicates that the front wheels are slipping on the road surface. The vehicle will not go into 4WD from a standing start, the front wheels have to be slipping.

  1. The rear differential will apply torque to the rear driveshafts when the propeller shaft speed is greater than the speed of the rear axle shafts
  2. The differentials are limited slip, not locking, so torque will be applied to the wheel with the least amount of resistance to rotation
