Hi, you will probably have to take to mitsubishi dealer and have them scan diagnostics....but sounds like the o ring has busted in transfer case. will it shift in and out of 4wheel drive? If not don't drive it...it will cause alot of damage.

    You might also have a sensor that has gone bad that is located under air breather. Also remember to put your montero in 4 wheel drive once a month to keep the sensors working!

4x4 light flashes all times(montero mitsh. sport)


The 4WD center diff light will flash when there is a vacuum malfunction in the front axle activating solenoid.

If this is happening, you likely have a bad Freewheel solenoid pack, they fail very regularly due to their location. Is is located on the passenger side fenderwell below the airbox; it is a pack of two solenoids with 6 hoses coming off of it.

4x4 indicator light flashes continuesly


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.

FWD not working


There is an electronic switch underneath in the linkage I believe that becomes corroded if not used frequently on my 2001 Montero Sport. At the start of each Winter season, I have to work the 4X4 lever to get the green light on. I then drive around holding the lever in position to keep the light on. I shift in and out several times as well. After the first time out in 4X4, it comes on and stays on the rest of the season. You are correct about the green 4X4 indicator light. If it is not on, you are not in 4 wheel drive

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: http://4wd.blogeasy.com/article.view.run?articleID=318776 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!
