Question about 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS

Tires changed and now 4wd lock flashing

After getting new rear tires my 4WD LOCK warning message is flashing on my dash. It will stop when I shut the car off and then start it back up and switch through 2wd, 4wd auto and 4wd lock but then shortly after driving a little bit it starts flashing again. Any suggestions? 1 person was saying put the car in neutral and rev the engine to 1500 and switch into 4wd lock and 4wd auto and then 2wd. I have not tried this yet but I will. Another thing to note is when the 4wd lock warning is flashing I am unable to switch through 2wd, 4wd auto and 4wd lock.

Since you can shift threw the gears, check the ABS system for a bad or erratic wheel sensor.

Did you have same size tires put on ? With the light flashing there is a DTC'S - diagnostic trouble code stored , have to have diagnostic tool hooked up . That's the only way your going find out what the problem is .

SOURCE: mitsubishi delicia 2.6 td (shogun

Check the super select solenoids. I had the same problem with my pajero/montero io, when I released 4WD from 4H to 2H the two front wheels lights started flashing. They stopped flashing and was solid on when I re-engaged the 4WD (2H to 4H).

My problem was a failure in the 2H solenoid, it was not producing enough vacuum. The problem was intermitent at the begining and then was permanent.

I checked the solenoids in this way:
1) The solenoid that receives the vacuum in the botton is for 2H
2) The solenoid that receives the vacuum in the top is for 4H
3) Both solenoids operate in the same way, they only change in the way they transfering vacuum from top/botton to the exit pipe (2H or 4H). The difference is that one has the vacuum input on the top and the another one in the botton.
4) The default position when you disconnect the electronics is 4WD
5) Try disconnecting the electronics and switching the output pipe between the solenoids. This will put the solenoids on 4WD position and you changed the pipes, so the 4WD should disengage.

4WD should disengage if your 4H solenoid is OK, the ligths should now flash when you change from 2H to 4H because 4WD cannot engage because the pipes are switched. You can also check the vacuum of each solenoid with your finger on each one.

If this doesn't work, try to bypass the solenoids and connect the input vacuum hose to the 2H output pipe. If the lights doesn't turn off in 2H mode it's posible that you have different problem.

Good luck.

SOURCE: My eclipse will start and then just die, like its gas is cut off

We just had this and it was a sensor called something like the CAM TIMING SENSOR - which gave the engine bad timing when it tried to get going. The car is great since we got it replaced - but it cost like $360 to get it all diagnosed and replaced.

Help with learn mode.How to? sorry,it's a 2007 versa sl hatchback,not a sentra.


To activate a new transmitter in the tire pressure monitoring system WITHOUT the Nissan Consult scan tool: Under the dash above the OBD II connector is a single wire connector called the "tire pressure warning check connector". Use a jumper wire and ground the tire pressure warning check connector with the key OFF. Then turn the key ON and cycle the ground at the tire pressure warning check connector 5 times within 10 seconds of turning the key ON. This should cause the tire pressure monitor light to start flashing indicating the system is in "learn mode". Then use the activation tool starting at the left front tire and work around the vehicle in a clockwise direction - front left, front right, rear right and rear left. Activating each transmitter at each wheel should make the turn signal flash one time and after completing all 4 wheels, the turn signals should flash two times and all 4 time pressures should be displayed.

On my 01 grand vitara i changed the 4wd pump behind the bumper the indicator light for 4wd now comes on but 4wd still does not engage


what does engage mean.? it fails on ICE or DIRT

engaged, means, (mechanically) one tire front and rear have traction

with LSD front and rear all 4 have traction and spin on ice

does it?

part time 4wd dont work on dry pavement so that is my 1st question

why not state, what you are driving on, and what does engage means

by what means did you check engaged.????



this car is not AWD, do you know the difference from AWD and

Part time 4wd? the diff, is there is center differential. on part time

so must be (true test) tested on ice, or dirt.



see the videos here, or a demo.

or on ice. ice you will see front and rear both working,

on dry plave ment all you get is windup... very very bad to do

in traffic, causing you to wreck and other to get , hurt.

if you understand all that, then do say what you mean

ENGAGED.

if you know what windup is and it dont, then you are correct

its not engaged. (jack left front tire up, engage it and feel it? by turning the the tire, it must fight you)

front up, rear down. in 4wd.

here it it is again.

http://www.fixkick.com/part-time-test.html



if it dont engage for real,. may i introduce you to the FSM

its in my hand now.

page 3B-3 . see it?

switch closes in xfr case

ECU sees that and powers up the air pump.

if pressure is good the Ecu is told that, if wrong you get scanned DTC code saying just that (obd2 scan too)

the pump has 2 shut off modes, good pressure. and fails to hold for 10seconds. (prevents pump from running all time)

if all the above works the Lamp glow by PCM command.

if you have full pressure , the lock in the front axle is now locked

no pressure, no lock yes full pressure it must lock or the axle

actuator is bad.

the page 3B6 says pressure is 4.25 to 6.40

page 3b10 is the acutator test. and the TRUE ENGAGE TEST

front wheels off ground.

apply 4.2psi with shop air and reg.at the acutator nipple

1: you spin one tire, the other spins backwards (GOOD test)

kill the 4.2 psi supply air

2: you spin one tire.

and the other tire, does nothing, (remains stationary)

pass. test 2.



test one is locked

test 2 is 2wd.



the other tests are on ice or dirt.

does that help?

1992 Pajero 4wd system attempts to engage randomly, 4wd indicator lights blink


Whenever this warning light or any other stays on in the dash it is indicating that the systems control module (or the system sensor in the case of lights like low oil pressure, door open indicators etc.) has detected a fault, it then disables the system (this applies to ABS,TCS, TCM, SRS, TPMS and BCM faults and others) as long as the light is on. You must now have the dealer hook up a special electronic diagnostic tool and "scan" the system for the fault code that is stored for the problem(s)

Service tire monitor on what is the problem? how do you reset the system?


TIRE PRESSURE MONITOR SYSTEM
The Tire Pressure Monitor System (TPMS) uses radio and sensor technology to check tire pressure levels. If your vehicle has this feature, sensors are mounted on each tire and wheel assembly, except the spare tire. The TPMS sensors monitor the air pressure in your vehicle's tires and transmit tire pressure readings to a receiver located in the vehicle.

The TPMS is designed to alert the driver, if a low tire pressure condition exists. This system also allows the driver to check tire pressure levels using the Driver Information Center (DIC).

When a low tire pressure condition is detected, the TPMS displays the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message on the DIC, and at the same time illuminates the low tire pressure warning symbol.

You may notice, during cooler weather conditions, that the tire pressure monitor light, located on the instrument panel cluster, and the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will appear when the vehicle is first started and then turn off as you start to drive the vehicle. This could be an early indicator that the tire pressures are getting low and need to be inflated to the proper pressure.

Each tire, including the spare (if provided), should be checked monthly when cold and inflated to the inflation pressure recommended by the vehicle manufacturer on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label. (If your vehicle has tires of a different size than the size indicated on the vehicle placard or tire inflation pressure label, you should determine the proper inflation pressure for those tires.)

As an added safety feature, your vehicle has been equipped with a tire pressure monitoring system (TPMS) that illuminates a low tire pressure telltale when one or more of your tires is significantly under-inflated.

Accordingly, when the low tire pressure telltale illuminates, you should stop and check your tires as soon as possible, and inflate them to the proper pressure. Driving on a significantly under-inflated tire causes the tire to overheat and can lead to tire failure. Under-inflation also reduces fuel efficiency and tire tread life, and may affect the vehicle's handling and stopping ability.

Please note that the TPMS is not a substitute for proper tire maintenance, and it is the driver's responsibility to maintain correct tire pressure, even if under-inflation has not reached the level to trigger illumination of the TPMS low tire pressure telltale.

The "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" warning message and low tire pressure light (telltale) will appear at each ignition cycle until the tires are inflated to the correct inflation pressure.

The Tire and Loading Information label (tire information placard) shows the size of your vehicle's original tires and the correct inflation pressure for your vehicle's tires when they are cold.

Your vehicle's TPMS can alert you about a low tire pressure condition but it does not replace normal tire maintenance.

NOTICE: Do not use a tire sealant if your vehicle has Tire Pressure Monitors. The liquid sealant can damage the tire pressure monitor sensors.

RESETTING THE TPMS IDENTIFICATION CODES
Each TPMS sensor has a unique identification code. Any time you rotate your vehicle's tires or replace one or more of the TPMS sensors, the identification codes will need to be matched to the new tire/wheel position. Each tire/wheel position is matched to a sensor, by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure. The sensors are matched to the tire/wheel positions in the following order: LF TIRE (left front tire on the driver's side of the vehicle), RF TIRE (right front tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), RR TIRE (right rear tire on the passengers side of the vehicle), and LR TIRE (left rear tire on the driver's side of the vehicle).

You will have one minute to match the first tire/wheel position, and five minutes overall to match all four tire/wheel positions. If it takes longer than one minute, to match the first tire and wheel, or more than five minutes to match all four tire and wheel positions the matching process stops and you will need to start over.

The TPMS sensor matching process is outlined below:
  1. Set the parking brake.
  2. Turn the ignition switch to "RUN" with the engine off.
  3. Turn the headlamp switch from "OFF" to the parking lamps setting four times within three seconds. A double horn chirp will sound and the TPMS low tire warning light will begin to flash. The double horn chirp and flashing TPMS warning light indicate that the TPMS matching process has started. The TPMS warning light should continue flashing throughout the matching procedure. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message will be displayed on the Driver Information Center (DIC).
  4. Start with the driver's side front tire.
  5. Remove the valve cap from the valve cap stem. Activate the TPMS sensor by increasing or decreasing the tire's air pressure for 10 seconds, then stop and listen for a single horn chirp. The single horn chirp should sound within 15 seconds, confirming that the sensor identification code has been matched to this tire and wheel position. If you do not hear the confirming single horn chirp, you will need to start over with Step 1. To let air-pressure out of a tire you can use the pointed end of the valve cap, a pencil-style air pressure gage or a key.
  6. Proceed to the passenger's side front tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  7. Proceed to the passenger's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  8. Proceed to the driver's side rear tire, and repeat the procedure in Step 5.
  9. After hearing the confirming horn chirp for the left rear tire, check to see if the TPMS warning light is still flashing. If it is, turn the ignition switch to LOCK to exit the sensor matching process. If the TPMS warning light is not flashing, the five minute time limit has passed and you will need to start the process over beginning with Step 1.
  10. Set all four tires to the recommended air pressure level as indicated on the Tire and Loading Information label.
  11. Put the valve caps back on the valve stems. The spare tire does not have a TPMS sensor. If you replace one of the road tires with the spare, the "CHECK TIRE PRESSURE" message will be displayed on the DIC screen. This message should go off once you re-install the road tire containing the TPMS sensor. The "SERVICE TIRE MONITOR" message is displayed when the TPMS is malfunctioning. One or more missing or inoperable TPMS sensors will cause the service tire monitor message to be displayed.

Hi A J Mae,
Do you mean the traffic indicators,( turn signals) or do you mean the dash board indicator lamps? If it's the dash warning lamp indicators, they work on a fail safe system, when you turn the ignition on before the start position, all the lights will come on untill start up and ten they will go off automatically within a second or two....if they stay on with the engine runnig you have a problem we have not covered here.
That will be your hazard warning switch, the one that will be flashing on the dash with a triangle showing on it....If that doesn't do it it'll be something to do with the anti theft device...get out of the car lock all the doors and then press the button on the key fob
