Nissan Rogue Owners Manual / Starting and driving / Intelligent 4WD (if so equipped)

4X4–I SYSTEM OPERATION

WARNING
  •  Do not drive beyond the performance capability of the tires. Accelerating quickly, sharp steering maneuvers or sudden braking may cause loss of control, even with Intelligent 4WD engaged.
  •  For 4WD equipped vehicles, do not attempt to raise 2 wheels off the ground and shift the transmission to any drive or reverse position with the engine running.

    Doing so may result in drivetrain damage or unexpected vehicle movement which could result in serious personal injury or vehicle damage.

  •  Do not attempt to test an 4WD equipped vehicle on a 2-wheel dynamometer (such as the dynamometers used by some states for emissions testing) or similar equipment even if the other 2 wheels are raised off the ground. Make sure that you inform the test facility personnel that your vehicle is equipped with 4WD before it is placed on a dynamometer.

    Using the wrong test equipment may result in drivetrain damage or unexpected vehicle movement which could result in serious personal injury or vehicle damage.

 

CAUTION
  •  Do not operate the engine on a free roller when any of the wheels are raised.
  •  If you use the free roller, rotate 4 wheels with the same speed without raising any wheels.
  •  If an 4WD warning message is displayed while driving there may be a malfunction in the 4WD system. Reduce the vehicle speed immediately and have your vehicle checked by an NISSAN dealer as soon as possible.
  • If the 4WD high temperature message is displayed while you are driving, pull off the road in a safe area, and idle the engine. The driving mode will change to 2WD to prevent the 4WD system from malfunctioning. If the warning message turns off, you can drive again.
  •  If the tire size incorrect message is displayed while you are driving, pull off the road in a safe area with the engine idling. Check that all tire sizes are the same, that the tire pressure is correct and that the tires are not excessively worn.
  •  If a warning message continues to be displayed after the above operations, have your vehicle checked by an NISSAN dealer as soon as possible.
