A fault in your Electronic Steering Lock Module (ESL) can cause your symptoms. If so, the part is a Theft Relevant Part (TRP), will require the Repair Shop to fill out a special parts form showing the registered owner of the car with ID. Once the part is installed, programming the module is required. Prestige Automotive is qualified to diagnose, install, and program the part if necessary. We can be reached on Monday at 410-561-9696.

If the engine light flashes during the symptom, it implies an engine misfire. If not, you may have a drivetrain issue. Scanning the control modules for event data, road testing, and an on lift inspection will allow a qualified technician to determine what's wrong.

Start by checking your brake fluid level - a low level indicates brake pad replacement. Beyond that, a computer scan of the VDC system is required.

It sounds as if everything may be normal with your 4x4 system electrically - you might have a mechanical issue. Your best option is to have a shop put your truck on a lift and look. Give us a call if you would like a second opinion. Rick Steel Prestige Automotive 410-561-9696
