How to clear Check AWD System on dashboard of RX 350

My car has 91000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

This system relies on many mechanical, electrical, and computer components to operate properly and safely. This fault, if not corrected, can lead to more faults if not possible safety concerns. This needs to have a qualified technician perform an inspection to ensure the vehicle is safe and functioning correctly. Simply clearing the code/light is not properly repairing the fault. I strongly suggest having a qualified technician perform an inspection to avoid replacing unnecessary parts.
