      my aviator seems to be more and more of a gift wrapped pos... I've had my 03 x for 4 years and had less problems than the avi... What happened; drove 20 miles and set cruise at 60- all of a sudden tons of lights come on. "see owners manual" comes up and the "AWD LOCKED" stays on. Pull over and turn it off. Goes away for a min. I get goin again and it comes back- i hit the reset button by the shifter and it all clears. A couple miles late the "AWD Locked" light flashes 8 times and goes off for about 2 miles or so- maybe 2 minutes. Flahes 8 more times, then goes away. Did it the whole way home (40 miles). Dont know what it could be at all... Hoping its not something big... I do need a front left wheel bearing I think or some suspension work over there as I can hear a rubbing noise. Also... the TPMS is constantly on and will read dangerously low tire pressure even when they're perfect... help! I love everything about this truck- except for my maintaince. Im already regretting buying it... :(

      Sounds like you have a bad tpms sensor and bad wheel bearing. Usually the awd locked problem is related to transfercase concern but wheel bearing issues can affect transfer case operation.
