Question about 1988 Mitsubishi Pickup

Open Question

The green 4-wheel drive light on the dashboard constantly flashes when in 2 wheel drive mode. After a while the ABS warning light comes on. The vehicle seems to work OK. The switches in the transmission have been replaced... but it still continues. It's a Shogun Sport 2.5 td. Anyone any ideas? The garages are stuck for ideas also.

SOURCE: reversing lights not work

sounds like it could just be the reverse sensor located on the acctual gearbox under bonnet, you can tell which one it is as it is one of possible two.

SOURCE: Speedo suddenly not working and two warning lights

If the ABS (and likely the traction control) light came on at the same time that the speedometer stopped working, you likely have a faulty wheel speed sensor at the right rear wheel. You can test this by swapping the two rear wheel speed sensors (ABS sensors). If the speedometer then works (but the ABS & Traction control lights stay on), replace the sensor that is now at the left rear (was at the right rear). If no change, you may have a fault in the ABS & Traction control - control unit.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi shogun has transmission warning light

if the shift is being made and the car is in gear it will not change ,in some cases it is necesary to reverse a few times to allow shifts to occur if this still fails you could have a sticky solonoid ,these are mounted on the r/f inner guard there are two of the next to each other make sure there is vacume at the solonoids as the car will allways fail in 4wd mode it requires vacume to allow it to disengage the front diff on start up,that is why there is a grinding noise if you switch off the motor and free wheel to a stop the front diff tries to engage

ABS CHECK LIGHT DOESNT COME ON WHEN YOU TURN KEY ON


1. I would not be concerned because if there was a failure in the ABS you would definitely get an ABS warning light and the ABS and most likely the stability control/traction control systems (with added warning lights) will all switch off .

2. You can test if the ABS is operational. On a very quiet damp surface, straight, wide road( with NO other cars around), apply your brakes hard from a very low speed - up to 20 mph ONLY driving in a straight line - until the car stops. The front brakes should attempt to lock up under hard braking and if the ABS is operational you will feel it kick in and the brake pedal will pulsate as the ABS constantly allows brake pressure and then releases it to prevent the wheels from locking up on the damp road. If the ABS does not kick in be ready to release the brake pedal quickly to allow the wheels to rotate so you can steer the car safely. Without the ABS the front wheels should begin to lock up on the damp road surface due to the low level of tire grip. ONLY test this at very low speed and ONLY when driving in a straight line on a straight section of wide road with no other vehicles around.

Faulty Reading? Brake Fluid Level, ABS and tracking system warning light


If your hub (wheel bearing) is starting to go bad, the sensor can fault as well for the ABS (stabilitrack, etc) as it is all inside the hub assembly. Whatever the issue, once it is resolved, the light will go out. A scan should tell you which wheel is throwing you the code.
The instrument cluster can be taken out pretty easily (2 trim screws and 4 on cluster itself I think) and the bulbs are easy to put out and replace. My cluster was replaced under warranty for 1 burnt out bulb and got a reman that crapped out after a year now out of warranty.

I have a 2002 VW New Beetle. The ABS light has come on and there is a chiming beep and the ABS light flickers. What could be the problem?


ABS - Anti-lock Brake System.
If the ABS lights on the dashboard permanently the ABS system is faulty. You must access the ABS Electronic Control Unit (ECU) memory for pull out all DTC (Diagnostic Trouble Codes), using diagnostic equipment connected to the data link connector of the car. Then you will be full informed about bad pieces (e.g.: front right wheel abs sensor interrupted, ...). After bad pieces replacement you will be able to erase all faults memored by ABS ECU, in other words reset the ABS system and turn off the warning lamp on dashboard.
ASR - Acceleration Skid Control system.
When ASR warning light blinking the system is activated itself for car acceleration skid control.

For today's typical high-torque engines, traction control (ASR) can increase both comfort and safety, particularly when driving on slippery roads or surfaces offering differing levels of grip. Traction control permits smooth starting and acceleration through the full speed range without wheel-spin or fishtailing.
tdisline_703.jpg


ASR only operates in conjunction with the electronic accelerator (E-gas) and uses components of the anti-lock braking system (ABS). If one wheel suddenly begins to rotate faster than the others (slip), ASR intervenes in the engine management system and reduces power until the wheel stops spinning.
The ASR system represents a further contribution to active safety as it maintains vehicle traction and directional stability throughout the acceleration phase at any speed. In addition, it reduces tyre wear. Activation of the ASR system is indicated by a flashing indicator lamp in the instrument cluster.
The ESP system means the Electronic Stability Program. ESP system includes the ABS system.

The ABS light comes on, and sure enough on slipery road conditions, there's no ABS. BUT when it's icy, the ABS light on the dashboard goes out, and checking to see if I have ABS, sure enough I do. It's...


the abs warning light also works with the electronic traction control, (or traction control,same system,different names) and when icy, stops the wheels from spinning,above about 15 mph.(the abs dont work under 5mph) so if im right regarding your question,your car is doing what its supposed to,stopping the driving wheels from spinning/locking up.the warning light comes on when one or the other is doing its job.(working).the trick is to drive so that the warning light doesnt come on..... boring.

ABS and Trac off light coming on during drive


Usually that means either the ABS wheel sensors are defective, or the vehicule speed sensor in the transmission is defective. You simply need to find out which one, and getting the codes out of the OBD system will help find out which one usually. To do so you will need to ask someone with a code reader because the old GM jumper trick to have the check engine light flash you the code only work with older OBD-1 systems, and your 2000 model has and OBD-2 system which was standardised by government law at arround 1996.

ABS/CHECK ADVTRAC/SKIDDING CAR LIGHTS GO ON


The abs sensors also control the traction control and 4 wheel drive actuators so if one of the sensors is faulty the traction control will be disabled and the drive system will be stuck in the mode set at time of failure be that 4x4 or 2wd
get the abs system repaired

It is picking up a signal from one of the wheel sensors probably.
