I log on today and see this thread up and now I have all the motivation I need to get this done. I got a great idea that is a simple solution that I think would work, especially after seeing that you can remove a fuse to get this done, minus the windshield wiper problem. It would be switchable between RWD and AWD.
Now for another question, does anyone foresee any problems with the computer thinking that it can control power between the front and back and not being able to in regards to the traction control system? My solution would not automatically disable the traction control like pulling the fuse.
If this solution allows 100% RWD without losing any other features that aren't obviously affected by not having AWD (hopefully being able to keep brake assist, stability control etc., and not setting any crazy lights) then I will be first in line for this and a LSD for the rear.
Market this product to a vendor who sells LSD's and you will both benefit.
