Question about 2007 Mitsubishi Outlander XLS
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 .

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.

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.

try replacing the idle control valve (idle control motor) also look and leasen for vacuum leaks. also try cleaning out your trottle body with a lint free rag and some trottle body cleaner make sure to get behind the butterfly you can do this by holding it open well cleaning.hope this helps.

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?

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
Legend of Abbreviations. ABS Anti-lock brake system. TCS Traction control system, TCM Transmission control module, SRS Supplemental restraint system, BCM Body control module. TPMS Tire Pressure Monitor System
