What year and model is your Chevy?

2013 Chevrolet Equinox lt 4 cylinder
Chevy Mechanic: Jerry Newton, Chevy Technician replied 1 year ago

OK. This vehicle uses a clutch on the rear axle that engages when necessary. It's computer operated, of course, this warning message is telling us that the computer has detected something that's out of range or out of the ordinary.

The only way to know what the computer is complaining about is by using a high end scan tool to query the Rear Differential Clutch Control Module. It likely had nothing to do with ice buildup, but if you were in heavy snow and ice, one of the electrical circuits may have been damaged or something like that.

You will need to hire a professional mechanic that has the right electronic tools to diagnose this, at the very least, and only then can we formulate a repair strategy.
