And"................

Not sure I like it, unless the fitters have managed to disable 4 wheel drive, I seem to get rear wheel spin all the time now!!!!!
Even moving along at 10mph floor it and it lights up the rear, looks impressive but it now feels like the slowest thing I've driven for ages at launch
Any ideas or something I have to get used to?

Before it was fitted I couldn't get it to wheelspin at all unless on snow/ice

Did the unplug your, t-case? Unless they did that the wavetrac should have nothing to do with you losing 4wd.

Not that I'm aware of, all the work I watched at the rear end.
They did remove the rear seat to sort out the hand brake, anything under there could cause it.

Is there any way to tell the front wheel drive is working other than the obvious?

Something sure doesn't sound right, but all of us around here wish we could do a true four-wheel burnout.

Found a thread saying the fdcm module is under the rear seat, it detects any difference in speed between front and rear wheels and activates he front wheel drive, guess that's unplugged
At least it should be an easy fix if it told me which one!

Should I do a burnout vid first?

Please vote now lol

Isn't there a powertrain control module or something under the backseat? I thought I recall HB saying something about it once.... Could it be possible something got bumped or disconnected under there?
Yes the FDCM (Final Drive Control Module) is one of 2 module's located on the drivers side of the rear seat. Very easy to have a seat support hit the connection.

If you brought it in and it worked fine and now it doesn't... I would start looking there. Unfortunately, there is not much room in there, so you will have to remove the seat to take a look.
