......DAMN strong wheelbarrow!! I know it's AWD , that's why I was asking how you can tell there is no power transfer to the rear. Again.... NO warning lights are on , or flash while driving? The way you're phrasing your statement you say the 'rear wheels will not MOVE'? ........IF ...the front wheels are on the ground AND moving .....and the rear wheels are ON THE GROUND..........what are they doing??

basically when the truck shifts into gear you can feel that the car wants to move but the rear diff feels stucks and no engine lights it seems all mechanical

So , the car is NOT drivable at this time? Parking brake malfunction?

I had this same problem, and it was indeed the transmission.
