Anti skid console lights come on when driving at highway speeds. This has been checked by service department and computer hookup that reports no problems but it still happens.

I'm having this on my 2006 Montero as well. It happens when I turn right (like entering a highway, and pressing the gas hard). I can make that not happen if I turn off traction control before heading to that ramp, however, it kicks back on at 45mph I think. I also have it if I am going down a hill, at higher speeds, say through an "S" turn. It has also been explained to me that this is actually my ABS kicking in, likely b/c a sensor is bad or dirty, thinking that a wheel is slipping or lifting off of the ground. Basically, a wheel is not moving at the same rate of speed as the others, causing ABS to kick in and brake the other wheels so they can all "sync" back up. The kicker here is, there is no code. The ABS is working as it's supposed to. It's what is triggering the ABS that is not working right. I have yet to get a successful diagnosis on how to fix this.

One thing that greatly reduced it, and I mean greatly... Make sure your tires are the same size, preferably the recommended size by Mitsubishi, as well as make sure all 4 are of the same tread depth. When my rears were a lot lower tread depth from my fronts, it happened every time I hit the highway. Once I replaced my rear tires (fronts were already new), it may happen once a month or less now.

Lastly, my 2003 Montero had a similar issue. My issues on that ended up being a couple things....

My throttle body was causing my truck to throw an error, which caused the computer to throw an error, when put it in "limp" mode, deactivating traction/stability control. The 2nd part to this is that I had 2 of my 5 transfer case switches that needed to be replaced. (if you do this, replace all 5 at the same time). If there was the perfect storm and my throttle body started acting up when my transfer case switches did, my traction control light would light up at wierd times and blink or stay lit.

If you ever fix this, reply back.

I never had any issues w/ my 2002 as Mitsubishi didn't add traction control until 2003...and it's been a pain ever since.

Is the airbag light suppose to stay on?

if the light is on there is a fault in the airbag system and the control module has turned the airbag system off until the system is repaired, there are about a 2 dozen problems that cause the light

Airbag light stays on

The reason the light stays on in any vehicle is that the system in question hasnt passed the pre ignition tests given by the ecm(computer) Have the system checked immediatly from a qualified dealer because if the bag comes out when your driving your in big trouble.hope this helps!!!!!!!!

Why does my airbag light stay on all the time. Nothing happened to the car the day it just turned on. So I don't believe it need airbag system needs serviced. Even when the battery was disconnected the...

Sounds to me like one of the air bag sensors may have tripped, causing the airbag computer to think the vehicle has been wrecked. Take the vehicle to a dealership and have them reset the air bag sensors to get rid of the light.

2000 s10 extreme died while i was driving it was wierd

It is either a bad sensor or plugged fuel filter. Very possible it is the throttle position sensor or leaky injector. Most likely bad sensor.. If check engine light is on, than surely bad sensor.
