The hubs are not engaged. They need to be in order for the axle to be able to turn the front wheels.

You can't do it manually. The operation is entirely controlled by the vehicle's on-board computer which - when it senses wheel-slip from the front drive-wheels - automatically sends a signal that engages the drive shaft to the rear wheels, placing it in all-wheel drive mode.

There are sensors located on the axle assemblies of all four wheels. When the sensors tell the on-board computer that the vehicle has lost traction on its front wheels it automatically activates the All Wheel Drive (AWD) system which then engages the gearbox that sends drive power to the rear wheels.

There is some sort of vacuum cylinder or diaphragm on the front differential that engages it when you are in four wheel drive, that is probably the problem, I don't think driving it on dry pavement caused the problem.

All wheel drive has power going to all 4 wheels all the time 4 wheel drive has power going to 2 wheels and 4 wheels when it is selected

A 4x2 vehicle has 4 wheels with the 2 rear wheels that drive. A 4x4 vehicle has 4 wheels with all 4 wheels that drive.

The front wheels are the drive wheels on most lift trucks.

That would describe a vehicle as to having 4 wheels with two of them being the drive wheels. A 4+4 vehicle would have 4 wheels with all 4 being drive wheels.

My personal CR-V is a two wheel drive version. There are versions that are built as All Wheel Drives (AWD), but there are no "true" 4-wheel drive CR-V's. You cannot manually place your AWD into 4WD. AWD is designed so that it only operates when the on-board-computer senses wheel slippage from the front drive wheels and then automatically engages the rear wheels. When it no longer senses slippage the AWD feature is deactivated.

The front suspension housing and struts on a 1996 Pathfinder are severely corroded.
