AUTO and LOCK on slippery surfaces


I tried to understand the user manual in my native language but no help. Also in the various electronic versions of the english manual (perhaps Jinglish?).
I read in the manual that "If front wheels are slipping in 2WD mode, do not switch to AUTO or LOCK. This can cause difficulties for the system.".
This apply to switching while slipping or in case of slipping, stop, switch, start?
I am confused! i tought that the AUTO or LOCK is for this kind o situation!

Sorry if the answer is too simple for you but my previous car has all the controls manual, no electronics...

Thank you, Adrian.

Re:


Best thing to do is put it in Auto before your wheels start to slip.
You can change from 2WD to Auto or Auto to Lock whilst moving very slowly but better make a full stop before changing.

If the wheels start to slip or spin, stop and then changes the dial.

Yes that is how I read the manual - don't change the mode while the wheels are slipping. Stop first then change mode. Good advice is to always get into the correct gear and mode before you start a difficult section.
