Hello, I'm sorry that you had to wait so long. I have just now come online and will assist you.

The all wheel drive system on this model uses a circuit breaker in the non serviceable power distribution module/ecm. These were very problematic and fail often. Jumping it most likely over volted the circuit. You can purchase a new one HERE. it's located behind the radiator
