I have the same problem in my 1998 Montero and was surprised to see your posting. I just went to an auto electric expert and diagnosed it as a broken turn signal switch that needs to be replaced.

Just fixed this problem myself. I'm to cheap to buy a new signal switch soI took mine apart to figure out why it wasn't working. First I checked all bulbs, fuses, and the relay of course. So first I pulled out the entire switch assembly, surprise surprise the blinker turned off. Next I unscrewed the cover holding the actual lever in and pulled it out, be careful and go slow when you do this there is a spring that will pop out of place and some small part as well that are a real pain to put back together if you didn't see how it was put together originally. Now here's where the problem was. On the lower corner of the lever assembly a small plastic peg that fits into a slot just in front of where the plug is for the blinkers, there are three plugs on the back one for headlights, one for blinkers and the other is for dash indicator lights i assume. Well this peg broke off some how and so when i turned the blinker lever it wasn't actually moving the switch from one position to the other. Lucky for me the piece was still jammed in there. Next i turned the aasembly over so the white part where the plugs are was facing straight up. I then carefully pried the white part with the plugs off of the black lever housing. Again be careful because there is another spring and a lot of tiny parts, if you pry the white part up and leave th black part facing down you'll avoid the peices falling out, and only have the spring to deal with. Once i had the white part out I was able to retrieve the broken piece, if your lucky you'll be able to get the broken peice out with out have to seperate the white and black pieces. I used to krazy glue to glue the piece back on to the lever exactly as it had been. I suggest krazy glue because it doesn't take much and bonds the pieces together like it had never been broken and dries super quick. Once you glue the piece back on and it dries completely put everything back together and test it out. It worked great for me.

    I did the same thing but instead of gluing the crappy plastic piece back on I drilled a hole at a slight angle and threaded in a partially threaded bolt about the same thickness and cute the head off to length. Works great for me

    I copied Keevo123's solution and it worked out perfect for me. So happy to have saved $100.00 or so on a new one. The only advise I can add is do not use gorilla glue, it will not hold. As soon as I used regular good old fashioned super glue from the dollar store it worked perfectly. Thanks for the advise Keevo123.

1998 montero sport. Tail lights and dash lights do not work. Brake lights work, and dash lights flash with right turn signal. What is going on?


Your tail lights and brake lights are on a separate electrical circuit mainly because your brake lights need to be activated by the brake switch in your brake petal. Check the voltage regulation circuit in your dash light circuit to see what is faulty.

If the right turn signal stays lit at all times then there must be a short between the switch and the flasher or the flasher and the right side bulbs.

My right turning signal in my 2002 Montero sport


Hi, this is a common problem and can be very annoying the only thing you need to do to solve this problem is to replace the arm you press when you want to make a turn left or right, what happens is that the switch inside wares then it sticks in the one possition you can sometimes get it off by pushing it in slightly as you try turning it to off position but failing that the only option you have is to get the whole indicator arm replaced. Their is no way of repairing these as they are a sealed unit, if you have any breakers yards near to you then you should be able to get one from their for next to nothing other than that you need to ring your local car spares shops and see what best price you can get

Mitsubishi montero sport signal light malfunction


I had the exact same thing happen to my '98 Montero Sport.... the entire lever assembly most likely needs replaced because a switch inside of it broke. That is if it's the same as mine was which it sounds exactly like it is. I had to get the part from Mitsubishi and it cost somewhere around $100. You get a whole new lever assembly and mine is working great now, feels a whole lot better than it has in years. In the meantime you can take out the turn signal fuse in the interior fusebox to stop the turn signals entirely until you can fix the problem. Good Luck! corymaier@gmail.com

Left turn signal wont turn off and right one wont turn on.


You need to replace the blicker switch. The metal contact on your blinker switch is not being moved when you switch it over because its a little plastic bump that snapped off. You'll have to take the plastic molding around your steering column off before you do this. Most screws are behind plastic plugs in the molding that hide the screws.
