How Does Nissan Intelligent AWD Work?

Nissan proudly offers Intelligent AWD on the Rogue, an innovative drivetrain that automatically distributes power where it’s needed most. Regardless of where you roam outside of Los Angeles, Nissan Rogue AWD has your back by starting off in all-wheel drive and then conserving power once you’re up to speed. This intelligent system constantly scans road conditions to instantly deliver an added boost of torque when necessary, keeping you in total control even when you encounter slick spots in the road.

Nissan Rogue AWD Configurations

Nissan Rogue AWD is available on all four configurations, keeping you safe at every turn:

  • Rogue S AWD
  • Rogue SV AWD
  • Rogue SL AWD
  • Rogue Platinum AWD

Nissan Rogue AWD Lock Button

Intelligent AWD works to automatically distribute power based on road conditions, but should you find yourself needing maximum traction during challenging driving situations, you can utilize the Nissan Rogue AWD Lock feature. This button allows you to lock all four wheels for equal power, giving you added control during off-roading adventures outside of Los Angeles.

To use the Nissan Rogue AWD Lock button:

  • Locate the “AWD LOCK” button below your instrument panel.
  • Click the button to lock AWD mode. An AWD light will illuminate on your panel.
  • Keep AWD activated while you maneuver through snow, rain, or unpaved terrain in Los Angeles.
  • Once you’re ready to switch back to Intelligent AWD, click the button again to unlock and return to automatic power distribution.

AWD Error on Nissan Rogue

If you see an AWD Error illuminate on your dashboard lights, there are a couple of issues that may be at play. Consider the following to narrow down the meaning of your Rogue AWD error light:

  • Blinking Slowly: If your AWD Error light is blinking slowly, this means there’s a significant difference between the diameters of the front and rear wheels. To resolve this issue, safely pull over and idle in park. After a few minutes, the blinking should stop, but if it doesn’t, you should contact the Nissan of Downtown L.A. service center to assess the problem.
  • Blinking Rapidly: This error means that your powertrain oil temperature is too high. Pullover and park to let your engine cool down. Only resume driving after the blinking has stopped.
  • Illuminated Without Blinking: If your AWD Error stays lit, this means your AWD system is malfunctioning and needs service.

AWD is designed for safer driving, so if you see AWD error issues with your Nissan Rogue, it’s important to schedule service as soon as possible to take care of any issues.
