From the owners manual
Owner Manual Indicator
This symbol is shown when you
need to see the owner manual for
additional instructions or
information.
No Petcan3 was not being a wise guy, that symbol actually means to go look in the owners manual.
It is on page 5-16 of the 2015 owners manual.

I wonder if the "Owner Manual Indicator" is lit because the "TC off" icon is on. They want you to read up on the TC.

I don't remember what it looked like in my Trax but in other GM cars I had the TC off light was a Yellow symbol.

On my corvettes it lit up a symbol that looked like the back of a corvette with lines that represented the cars back end swaying/slipping it was yellow to get your attention.

The pic above looks like it just referring you to the owners manual for information.

The OP is referring to the cyan open book symbol that is circled. I am wondering if that is lit because the "Traction Control OFF" light is also lit on the speedo just between the 1 and 0, and yes it is yellow like your other vehicles.

Now I have to try to turn off my TC to see if I get the book icon.

The photo also shows "Code 173" in the lower right. I don't remember seeing that when I turn off the TCS, so perhaps it's alerting the driver to check the owners manual.

Thank you guys for all the info, I didnt notice that code 173, now, the question is how come the AWD was turned off by the computer at that time when it appeared?

The code 173 will have to be checked at the dealer, I don't think the newer cars can be checked with your 50 dollar scanner.

The manual says if you have the small spare on the car (I would also imagine mismatched tire sizes) or the system detects excessive wheel spin the AWD will disable until the system cools down.

Here is a link to the on line Trax owners manual https://www.chevrolet.com/content/dam/Chevrolet/northamerica/usa/nscwebsite/en/Home/Ownership/Manuals_and_Videos/02_pdf/2016-trax-owners-manual.pdf

By my Investigation it seems that some of the AWD units needs a update in the Rear Differential Module.
There is a TSB for this Update.
Also I have the list of 2 and 3 digit codes that may be shown in the DIC . They aren't in the Owners Manual.
Here you can see the Code 73 or 173 is " Service All Wheel Drive system "

Was unable to post the links to the TSB. I need more post ?? Why is this ??

Send me a PM and I will send you the files.

Regards.
