Hi, on the front axle is the actuator for the free wheel hub. This actuator works with vacuum. You will need to establish if you have sufficient vacuum on the actuator. You should have vacuum on one side of the actuator in 4x2 mode and then the vacuum should change to the other side when 4x4 mode is selected. If your vacuum is fine and the actuator moves far enough, then you should look at the freewheel sensor situated on the front diff. The sensor might be faulty which gives the control unit the wrong info.

Your Mitsubishi transmission is a sophisticated piece of machinery, with multiple electronic components and advanced diagnostic capabilities. This means, your transmission is capable of telling you what the problem is, via the diagnostics process.
When the "N" light flashes, this is an indication that a fault has ocurred within your transmission, and to prevent further damage, the transmission is then placed into "Limp" mode , allowing the vehicle to be driven at low speed - just enough to get you to your home or service agent.
What the "N" light flashing means:
i) One flash per second (1Hz) - the computer has detected an internal malfunction. Further diagnostics is required to identify the suspected circuit or component.
ii) Two flashes per second (2Hz) - the trans fluid temperature is too high. Stop the vehicle, place gear into Neutral and leave engine idling for 2-5mins to allow fluid to cool. Chances are your fluid may not be of the incorrect type (must use Mitsubishi fluid only), incorrect level or the fluid is due for replacement.
Further diagnostics should be carried out by extracting trouble codes (DTC) from your vehicle's Powertrain Control Module (PCM). This process takes only a few minutes with the aid of the correct hand held scanner - I recommend this process be done only by a Mitsubishi franchise, as many garages claim they know what they're doing, when in reality, you end up spending unnecessary $'s, due to their lack of knowledge.
If problems in the transmission have been detected, one or more fault codes (DTC) between P0700 to P0999, should be stored in your PCM's memory.
NB: the correct diagnostics procedure will identify the problem very quickly. Do not waste your time taking to your local mechanic, who may not have the required diagnostic scanner.
Hope this helps........and Good Luck !
