FWD to AWD swap

Post by arse_sidewards »

Trans is starting to go out in the '93 FWD.

I have all the physical stuff I need in order to swap to an AWD trans. I have the AWD transmission control module. What wiring do I need to do to support it? (or if someone could point me in the direction of the relevant wiring diagrams that would help too)

So are you wanting to go from AT FWD to AT AWD?

I think you would just need to check whether the FWD car has the wiring in the transmission harness for the duty c solenoid which controls the AWD. I'd have to look at the diagrams again to see what, if any other wiring is AWD specific.

I gotta hurry up and get my front end loader out of the garage so I can do this swap. A solenoid is failing when I do a 1->2->WOT->1 shift sequence. I hope it makes it until spring so I can add my (never seen road salt so I don't drive it in the winter) van back to the fleet rotation.

I do have a '93 and '94 AWD car to reference so if I don't get a definite answer on this it's ok.
