Greetings...... “Hi, I’m Don (aka MOLurch) and I look forward to helping you!”
First you need to have the vehicle scanned for Trouble Codes
Some Auto Parts Stores will scan for FREE
IF they cannot scan the ABS / Traction Control, then you need to find a Shop that can (Brake Shops, Automotive Shops, etc.)
Once you have the Trouble Codes this will help you in making a informed repair on what parts, sensors, etc. is needed.
This can be a simple sensor, wiring issue, short, etc.
Otherwise it will just be guessing without scanning the vehicle

IF you need more information, please ask "prior" to Rating.

I scanned it and I'm getting nothing the awd is just flashing is there a way to reset system and see if that does it I have already done a cooling system Repair and this is the last thing I found. Does that light mean the awd will not work as long as the awd drive light flashes

is your scan tool able to read ABS & Traction Control Modules?

correct......typically when the AWD light is on, it will prevent AWD
