Imitsubishi shogun engaging 4 wheel drive

I recently hired a Mitsubishi camper van in Australia and on the first day I put it into 4 wheel drive, drove for about 200 metres and then changed back to 2 wheel drive. it appears that the transmission stuck in 4 wheel drive even though the gear lever was in 2 wheel drive. I continued my journey not aware that the gear box was stuck in 4wd and the gear box failed. Has anyone had a similar experience. Thee were no warning lights to show the gearbox was in 4wd.

No year?
never drive, part time 4wd on pavement, unless said pavement
is ice or snow covered.
only AWD allows pavement (tires direct upon) driviing.
part time 4wd is for offroad , off pavement driving,
this is because 4wd has no center differential.
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Four-wheel_drive

and with out such, winds up the drive line fast. and breaks it.

wiki states (no year stated by you)
Part-time four-wheel drive was standard on all models. to 1991
then came
ActivTrak 4WD
cept
4H (high-range full time four-wheel drive), 4HLc (high-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential) and 4LLc (low-range four-wheel drive with locked center differential
so do not use LOCKED on pavement. on active track. only 4H
the wiki states the Super-select is retained 2006 to present.
Super-Select 4WD II

read the glove box manual under 4wd

Green four wheel drive light flashes when driving normal operation.sometimes its trying to engage it self when in 2 wheel drive.works perfectly in 4-wheel operation


If it engages in 4WD and works noramly in 2 and 4 wheel .
Then I would look to the switches . A lose wire bad connection or if a cable is involved a slight adjustment
Dosn't sound like you have a big problem .You will have to do a little research on how the system works being some are vacuum with cable some electronic even the same vehicle same year im not sure what Mitsubishi used in the colt in that year .
But mitsubishi are build very well good engieneering

4 wheel drive won't disengage


There can be a linkage adjustment problem. Also you may need to remove transfer case housing to check the spring inside. There is a chain inside. That one should be checked for its tension. If those are ok you may need your transfer case get serviced.

Shogun 2.8 wont go into 4 wheel drive?


most vehicles do have a yellow light that comes on and usually after engaging 4 wheel drive you have to reverse for 2 to 4 feet, after that your 4 wheel drive should be working fine

2000 F350 Super Duty Will not go into 4 wheel drive


I have recently had this problem with a customer. It seems the 4x4 low will only engage in neutral with the brake applied. And also check fuse. Then select drive and you will feel it lock in. Don't "goose" the fuel when attempting this.
