Alright, I guess here's my addition to the compilation.
2010 Evo GSR...current mileage is just under 27k
I left for Europe for almost 3 months, and when I came back, I started up the car and the AWD-needs service light came on and has stayed on. I also can not adjust the AWC setting (tarmac, snow, etc). I do live in central PA; however, in 5 years I've only seen <0degF temperatures maybe 3 days. We generally have a few weeks of single digits/teens. Also, the car has always been garage kept, but it is my DD. So, question for you guys. I've been doing as much research as possible, and people were talking about "flashing" it. Is this just flashing the ECU to clear the code? Also, when you guys are popping this light, have any of you had issues with the relay under the hood, or has it been only pump problems? I'm going to contact the local dealer tomorrow, but I'm not sure how well this warranty will hold up for me, if at all. I'm second owner on the vehicle (does the warranty transfer??), and I'm fairly modded with all of the bolt-ons...now, that being said, I don't think any mod would directly effect this pump!? So, I'm gonna cross my fingers and hope this works out!
