I have a 2002 montero and the 4 wheel drive will not engage...it has power coming out of the elctronic shifter and into the the brain box... but the power wont come out of the brain box and go into the transmission and the box is expensive and i want to make sure that i need the brain box before buying it. And to check if this was a reccuring problem with this vehicle. There is no idiot light that comes on either.

I believe that Mitsubishi has one of the best and easiest 4X4 selector systems on the Pajero/ Montero. Just below the gear shifter lever is the 4X4 mode selector. A lever like the gear shifter that works in a up, down movement. On your dash board you will notice a sort of axle, chassis diagram in green light. In normal 2WD or 2H mode the lever is set all the way back and on the dash only the rear wheels a lite up in green light on the axle, chassis diagram. This is for normal driving on the highway and smooth roads of dry dirt roads. Pushing the lever up wards while moving at crawling speed will engage the light 4X4 mode which is 4H for when the driving gets a little slippery. All 4 wheels on the axle/ chassis diagram will be lite green. Shifting the lever from the 4H position to the left and upwards will engage the 4HLc mode for 4X4 on sand and deep snow. This will also engage the central diff lock which will show on the axle/ chassis diagram on the dash board with the center box also lite up. Further up from the 4HLc mode and while pushing down on the 4X4 lever push it to the top most position, but only do this when at a stand still with your foot on the brake pedal. This will engage the 4LLc mode with 4X4 and central diff lock on for when driving gets sweaty on thick mud up and incline. To disengage this mode stop, foot on break put it in P and then pull down the lever to one of the lower settings.
