Default Weird sound when turning at low speed

For maybe the last few weeks I've started to notice a weird screaching-like sound when I try and turn my wheel from either a stop, or at speeds under 10 mph, like when turning into my driveway. It only does this at the low speeds or when stopped, and no other time from what I can tell. Any suggestions?

Put your DCCD back to AUTO mode before turning at low/slow speeds or reversing. Also you might want to check to be sure the neighbors cat didn't nest on your IC.

It's the sounds of the center differentials. It does it in auto mode as well. Don't sweat it. It's a lovely sound; it lets me know that my stuff is working .
