SOURCE: car will not move when
Have a helper put it in first gear and then check to see if any of the driveshafts or half shafts are spinning. U could have a broken axle, or one of your axles popped out. Or u could have spun all the fiber or lining off your clutch disk. With car running try to shift in to gear without depressing the clutch if it goes into gear with no grinds then it your disk. just a few simple tricks to try.

SOURCE: diff lock and abs lights
An Auto mechanic got a rear bearing of my Mitsubishi Outlander (2003 model) fixed but I noticed a problem thereafter: the ABS indicator on the dash board stays on perpetually whenever I start the car. How do I get this fixed?

Most differential failures are either caused by low fluid level (burnout),
"Shock loading", which can be caused by accelerating hard on an icy surface, sand, etc. then "hooking up" on a better surface while under power, or,just getting on it really hard in a forward gear after backing up without rolling a bit in drive to close the lash between the gears.
Material failure: In which case, a flaw in a casting allows normal stress to cause a failure without the operator doing anything unusual.
Your question about over-loading would not be valid in your case unless the overloading was coupled with one of the above. Generally, overloading will just cause the gears to overheat because the load will cause the lube to squeeze out from between the gear teeth and cause excessive friction generated heat. (why heavier lube is recommended for towing).
One recommendation though...once one diff bearing fails, replace them all. (rebuild the unit) Debris from one bearing is carried to all bearings and causes microscopic wear which will result in another failure.
Rebuilding is part technology and part "art-form" requiring experience and the proper tools. It is expensive. It may be better to find a replacement (wheel to wheel) in a scrapyard though if it's a posi, that may be difficult.

Pajeros have a air operated solenoid to disengage/engage the front hubs and centre diff lock. the solenoids themselves can stick if aged. to replace them is about $200 each (two or more of them). I found thata bit of WD40/ CRC soaking inside the airhoses and solenoides and enagge/disengage action of the hubs frees it up again. Do this while stationery in neutral and motor running. The solenoids are located inside the engine bay just behind the drivers side headlight. They will have some black rubber air tubes in/out of them. When you engage/disengage you should hear a little whirring and slight clunk and the hub locks/unlocks. If very aged, you may need to move the car forward/backward for the hub locking mechanisim to find its opening. Once disengaged, the orange light should go out. The aftermarket workshop manual by Max Ellery fully describes this process and is about $30 ON eBAY.
