Question about 2003 Mitsubishi Montero

Open Question

Lcd display The display on my dashboard only has 2 screens instead of 3, and the outside temperature is not showing as well. The screen that shows climate control is missing, the other two show up just fine. I had to recently jumpstart the car and since then it has been missing. It was like this when I first bought it used, and the mechanic got in, held down a couple of buttons and turned the key off and on and it reset and was fine. That mechanic is now gone and no one else there know how to do it.

SOURCE: OBD 2 code showing 301

P0300, P0301, and P0302 are all misfire codes (cylinders #1 and #2, and a multiple/random misfire). The only time I've heard of this being related to a crank sensor is if the sensor were loose. Furthermore, a crank sensor issue should affect all cylinders equally. So I'd expect you'd have the P0300 only, or all the codes you have plus P0303 and P0304 (and P0305 and P0306 if a V6).

You should continue checking your secondary ignition system. Presuming the wires and plugs made no difference in the codes or condition, check the coil. You'll want to do your checking when the problem is occurring. Perhaps even mist the wires and coil with water to see if you can see a spark jumping. If you do indeed see a spark jumping, that is the location of your problem.

Another strategy you can use is to take the #1 and #2 plug wires (if accessible) off the plugs and just set them back in place without clipping back onto the plugs. Then, start the car, and gradually pull the wire(s) off the plug(s). The spark should come out of the end of the wire onto the plug. If it comes out of the coil or the side of the wire, then the problem is in the location of the spark.

If you're unable to find a secondary ignition problem, then you should begin investigating whether you have a fuel delivery or internal engine problem causing the misfire. Most engine issues will show up with a compression test. If you indeed are only misfiring on cylinders 1 and 2, you can swap those injectors with the others to see if the misfire follows the injectors.

SOURCE: check engine light on

The new sealed batteries fail without any warning, drive to the store, come back out the battery is dead, the other issues you have are caused by low system voltage, replace the battery and all should be well.

SOURCE: Mitsubishi Magna GLX 1993 jumpstarting sets off alarm!

Is the alarm factory fitted, cheap, or a top of the range.
the factory alarm you can pull the cable of the horn untill you get the car started.
there are some alarms that go off when there is a voltage change, and some will keep going for a couple of minutes if the battery is dead flat untill there is power to equilze the power abit,
and some alarms have a key over ride in the siren.
if its a cheap alarm take the battery of and charge it,(the alarm will cut out as soon as the battery is disconnected.
~dont jump start from a dead flat battery, as it can cause a lot more problems with the electrics, leave another car running with the jump leads on for at least 5 min first.~

SOURCE: audi a6 Dashboard problem in cold weather

sounds like a faulty outside temp sensor. This is located behind the lower front grill on the rad support. This sensor is likely causing your both issues as the voltage drop or resistance is not in the range the ecu expects. You can check http://forums.fourtitude.com/zeromain they will help to clairfy swapping the sesnor if you feel like getting your hands dirty.

SOURCE: climate control has a mind of its own

I had the same problem and it was the ambient temp sensor. I replaced it and it worked fine.

Iv got vauxhall zafria model 2004 outside temperature symbol is not coming on dashboard is that a big problem should take it straight to gargage


No outside temperature just shows the temperature outside the car the snowflake symbol will not show up until it is cold enough outside it has 2 stages yellow is an initial warning of cold temperatures when it gets to freezing the symbol will turn red.
The outside temp warning is not connected to anything mechanical only the engine temerature gauge is so dont worry it will not affect the running of the car but is just there as a warning of falling temperatures outside.

I don't have an owner manual for my 2003 MB430s. Is there a place where it should show the outside temperature? If so, where is it?


on the instrument cluster.Usually off to the left or right bottom of the screen. You probably have a back lighting bulb out. You can also access it on the center screen by scrolling through the menu with the steering wheel buttons. There are 2 sets of buttons 1 has a picture of a page on it and the 2nd has arrows. I beleive you can scroll with the page button untill you have the odometer reading. Then scroll with the arrow button untill the outside temp is displayed. You may have to mess around with it but I know it is in there. good luck

Outside temperature


The exterior temperature display is built into the Automatic temperature control unit. or the A/C controls. Look at the buttons for the A/C unit and press the one that is marked "EXT". This will display the outside temperature.
