I have had a chevy equinox (2006) since september of 2005. I believe since i have had the suv it has been making a mind-blowing noise from the rear wheels whenever the All-wheel drive engages!!! It sounds like a loud grinding noise almost as if the abs are stuck on! Has anyone else had this problem? Are there any chevy acknowledgments on this or recalls?

I have a 2006, abs and traction control light comes on after the abs system goes crazy. turn the car off and back on its good to go for a few more miles, then press the pedal and same noises come back dealer says they cant find the problem.
Also, had to replace the heater core,(800. bucks)
The fabric that the seats are covered in is horrible.The starter also sticks every now and then. I just wasted 26k.

Possibly just a solenoid in the rear differential. Would need to scan computer to check for codes.
Other possibilities are 1 or 2 failed parts internal.
There are a fee bulletins for this.

Mines has the same problem, my rear Differential is broken and that's what makes a loud noise. Now I have to replace it and hopefully that fixes the ABS light. Question, do you know by any chance if I can install the differential of a LS 06 into the LT 06 I have? Or they all have different differentials?
