SOURCE: Intermittent Flashing 4x4 Light

This was a weakness of the Montero Sport models. If you google Montero Sport 4WD light flashing you will find lots of information. The best troubleshooting article I have found is here: This article is about the Pajero, but the Montero Sport uses the same platform so this article applies.

The Montero Sport uses several switches and vacuum modules to put the system in and out of 4WD. If any of these malfunction, the light may flash continuously, flash intermittently, fail to come on, and it can trigger the anti-lock brake light to come on. In brief, if the 4WD shift lever is engaged, but the transfer case doesn't engage, the sensors show a mismatch and will cause the light to act funny including triggering the vehicle's anti-lock break light. These SUV's need to be shifted into 4WD regularly to keep the switches and mechanisms working correctly.

Try this before you even think about a visit to the $$$$$ Mitsubishi Dealer:
Shift the 4WD lever between 4WD High, Low and 2WD at least 100 times. Often, this will free the mechanisms and resolve the problem. It worked for me after three years of trying everything else including the dealer replacing switches, etc. If this does fix it for you, just be sure to shift the vehicle in and out of 4WD several times at least one a week and this will keep the mechanisms lubricated and functioning correctly. If that doesn't work, try the above link (article). Good luck!

SOURCE: 1993 Camry Check Engine Light

Therre is no DTC code "5". The DTCs start at 12. If the knock sensor (there are actually 2) was bad, you would have an acceleration issue. The knock sensor changes the timing of the spark to eliminate detonation, or "pinging". Do you have a "Ping" condition/valve rattle on acceleration?
To reset the light, open the hood, remove the 15 amp EFI fuse for 5 minutes. Replace it, and start the car and drive it until it reaches operating temperature. If the light comes back on instantly, you have a bad sensor or a bad wire.

Does your speedometer work ok? There is a sensor on top of your rear differential that provides a signal to both the abs and the computer(speedometer uses the signal from the computer) This sensor goes out pretty common.

Hi Abush, Im AL the owner of Big As Auto Repair.

Abush, not all check engine lights are bad. The only time you can not drive the vehicle is when the engine light is flashing. If the light is on all the time and not flashing its OK to drive. The flashing tells you its not OK. But, when on steady all the time it tell the technician what sensor are part of the system that's is the fault. Hope this helps and please visit my auto-repair-website At:

If your engine light is flashing on and beeping will your motor blow up if you continue to drive it

As a general rule flashing is bad. It does need to get checked out. I would say pay the 50 dollars, have it hooked up to a computer and have it diagnosed. It could be as simple as a sensor. If it is something major and you keep driving it could cost you thousands in the end.

There is no way to tell what the light is for without scanning for trouble codes.There is a way to access the computer trouble codes without having a code reader. If you look under the driver side dash near the steering column, you will find the diagnostic port where you would plug in a scanner. If you look closely you will see that the terminals are identified as a,b,c, and d. Take a metal paper clip and straighten it out, then bend it into a u-shape. Put one end of the paper clip in terminal A, and the other end in terminal B. Now turn the ignition key to the on position, but do not start the engine. The check engine light will start flashing. This is how you will get the codes, by counting the flashes. The check engine light will flash the number 12 three times, to let you know that it's getting ready to flash a code. Let's say the computer has stored a code 32, and a code24. First, the number 12 will flash 3 times(flash-pause-flash flash). Then there will be a long pause. Then the computer will flash the first code, which, in this example, is 32(flash flash flash-pause-flash flash). It will flash the same code three times, then it will flash the number 12 again. After the third number 12 has flashed, the next code will flash, which is 24(flash flash-pause-flash flash flash flash). That code will flash 3 times. Then there will be a long pause, and the pattern will be repeated. After all the codes have been flashed, the whole sequence will be repeated, starting with the first code, and will continue as long as the paper clip is in the diagnostic plug. Write the codes down as they are flashed. If you get mixed up, just wait for the next sequence of the number 12 to flash, then start counting the flashes again. Believe me, it takes a lot longer to type all this out than it does to get the codes off teh computer. If you have any questions, let me know. When you have the codes, I can look them up for you and see what they represent.

Maintainence required light comes on for a short time while driving and then goes off. this is repeated as I am driving down the highway. this never happened until I had over 180k miles

Sounds like a bad sensor. The light comming on and going off is showing that it is a soft code. There is a little black connector under the dash on the drivers side it has letters on it. You need to jump pins A and B with the truck in the on position but not running do not try it with the truck running. with the key on watch the service engine light and count the flashes. The first set will flash once then three time which is code 13 it should flash that 3 times after that if it has any stored codes it will flash them the same way first digit then second digit. each code will flash 3 times and then it will flash 13 again once all the codes have been shown. write down the codes and most autoparts stores can tell you what they mean and the related causes.

Which of the 3 pins on the OBD connector can I put a jumper so I can read the codes

there is no way to do it but on a Chrysler product you can see the codes by turning the key on and off three times while watching the check engine light. On the third time the light will start flashing codes.Count the first flash, wait than count the second flash. That should be your code.

Drive 4 light flashing and the car will not start.

92 accord has A temp senser problem as the light continue to flash thats not the right way to retrieve cdes. Most of the time the car goes into steady flash the mixture is wrong and the car will stay shut down till corrected. It this is a black car or dark green the air temp senser may go out of range and the system can't compute and shutts down the system A true scanner that has a trobleshooter feature has to be connected and follow the troble diaagrams to deterimin the problem. A professtional salesman ( that sells to shops ) at your local auto parts store can turn you on to a reasonable mechanic that can solve your problem as its tool and experience in tensive
