Oh yeah Im good at it now ! Just got messed up with many folks saying just add what you take out ,then I read here somewhere to gently top it off but if there is not a heat sensor on the ptu then the awd off heat signal must have come from the RDU,right? I checked that fluid as well and it was good,I didnt change it but I did check it . All we have seen is that message a few times on one trip,never lost awd or had front only pulling that I can tell .

Yeah, it is triggered by some situation with control of the RDU, not usually by the PTU itself.  Since many people have PTUs that had been gunked down to basically solid gunk, and the AWD still worked fine, I am not sure that having only 10 oz in there was the cause of the AWD OFF message.  I think all should be well now tho.  As I said before, the ony other item you can check is the electrical integrity of the connection at the ATC.

Since you may have burned up some of the life in the fluid, I would do a full dump and put in Amsoil etc...I'd also d the pigtail so you can change ptu quick.

Social media is a real crapshoot.  Since messaging occurs rapidfire, a lot of folks leave their filters off.  Can get ugly real fast.

It happens on this forum on occassion, but thankfully our members keep it to a minimum :)

Checked rear rdu fluid and its clean and full,air pressure in all tires the same ,only thing 8 have found that is suspect is the rear tires are of a different brand than the front . Same size but thinking about how if the rear or front tires are of different real size after a few hours I could imagine the clutches could possibly heat up and cause the code,you guys think this is a possibility ? I believe the Rdu is the only component with a sensor correct ? Thanks fellas for the help !
