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.

Could be many things. Bad torqe convertor, bad idle air control valve, bad egr valve. So many things it could be. Id spend 60 bucks to get it diagnosed that way your not throwing needless parts at it. Hope this helps

sounds like you have a short somewhere. without seeeing the car, i would suggest going to an auto electrician, not a "local garage" and god forbid... to mitsubishi (unless your loaded that is).
my gut feeling would be the alternator belt (aux belt) is getting old and worn and is slipping, causing a power fluctuation, but again, without seeing it, i cant diagnose.
good luck with it, fto's are fantastic so do what you can

I don't know what a RVR is but this is the kind of thing you have to pretty much take to a trans shop. One word of caution; do not let them take your trans from the car to figure out what is wrong with it unless you are planning on having them fix it. This is a typical ploy of trans shops. They get your car in and get your approval to pull the trans to check it out. You will not get your car back together unless they rebuild the trans so call around and ask about the price of having the trans rebuilt before you take it anywhere so you have an idea who is going to rip you off so you can avoid them right up front. With that said..... Assuming the transmission is filled with the correct amount of transmission fluid you should know that the major weakness with the the 7th generation Galants (1994-98 Galants) is the auto trans fails. Generally you will see a gradual loss of function. First it will stop going into some gears, then it will not even move the car at all for a short waiting period. In the end it just wont move the car period. Ultimate recourse is to either rebuild the trans or replace with a manual unit from a junk yard.
