Default Rear wheels not turning on my AWD!

I have a '95 L Coupe. It's was AWD when I bought it. It has other plans...
No, smoke, sounds or drama. It just didn't feel right the thru the corners. I suspected that the only power I was getting was from the front wheels. When winter came, my fears were confirmed. It was obvious that the rear wheels were not turning under power. So I put it up on jack stands and looked. The whole drive shafts isn't moving!
Does anyone have any ideas for what's going on? Is there a common problem with a fix?

Good news only please.

Post this in the transmission forum for better answers...

Automatic or manual?

It's an automatic. (couldn't pass up the car in spite of the slush box)

If it's automatic, is it an electronically controlled center differential? If so, maybe you just blew a fuse. I'm sure someone can tell you where the differential fuse is and you can check.

A fuse would put it in 2wd, the dash would illuminate the FWD mode.

I went throught all the fuses. The 10 amp fuse that goes to the tranny is fine. I also checked the "2WD" fuse in the engine compartment and it does not have a fuse. (Which, as I understand it is what I want).
So I went to go see how much a Subaru Factory manual would be... Is anyone interested in giving me a scholorship/donation of $250?

I don't see any unplugged wires or anthing like that leading to the tranny/diff. It just flat stopped working. The drive shaft does not move at all.

You could test if it was electronic or mechanical. Cut the wire to the solenoid that controls lockup. If you get a locked center differential then its electronic. If the rears still stay still then your problem is mechanical.

Does your power light or transmission temperature light ever flash?
