If the car is up on jackstands, you can always spin the rear wheels by hand because the haldex coupling is normally disengaged. The true test is to get the car up in the air and see if you can spin the driveshaft easily. If yes, read the note above.

Better yet, take the car back to wherever you "just got it" from.

Run away in the opposite direction with your wallet in hand and/or sit in the corner and cry while your mechanic towers over you laughing menacingly with your wallet in hand.
Since I don't drive through lots of snow, and it drives fine, no need to repair it.

Money saved. :thumbup:

I have done a ****-ton of reading on this since I too lost AWD on my 04 VR. It will only take about 3 hours total to remove and replace the angle gear - while it is removed, the collar / sleeve / coupler that is attached (glued) to the output shaft of tranny must be removed and replaced. If the AG is good then this and axle seals upon re-install are all you / your indy need to do. IF AG is fubar, then new it is 1300 but used units are 5-600. Add $70 for the sleeve (from TASCA) + optional 125 reseal kit from IPD. 3 or 4hrs labor is fair for the total job. So I think $500 for just sleeve and 1000 if used AG is needed would be a great deal and worth shopping for. Otherwise you have a 1 wheel drive car. AWD handles/ drives 100% better in any condition

Or driving in fields :p
I had to do that once. Being that it was dry and flat there were no problems. Still didn't like driving through the field with the thought of holes and parking it there.

Could be just the collar gear
Could be the pressure sensor
Could be the DEM module
Until you DEFINITIVELY find out what the problem is... you're just going to spin your wheels and waste money
