Mitsubishi Repair Problems? Ask a Mechanic for Answers ASAP
Hi,Do you have the upgrade 4WD light, where there are four individual "Wheel" lights and a center differential light, or do you have the base 4WD light where there is literally just a single light that indicates if you are in 4WD or not?
So to be clear, you have the single light, not the four wheels and center diff light set up?
Thanks.With the vehicle off, turn the key to the On position while watching the light, does it perform its bulb test (lights for 2-3 seconds when the key is first turned)?
Thanks, ***** ***** a lot.
The bulb should perform a self test at key-on.... to not do so would mean either a fuse failure, bulb failure, or ecu failure. Since the 4WD works, an ecu failure is pretty well out.Lets go to the in-dash fuse panel and verify each fuse there. The 4WD light should have a 10A fuse.
Thanks.If all fuses are definitely good, the only real expectation here would be that the bulb has burnt out. There isn't really anything in the radio area where you could have damaged anything without really trying... and even then short of actually cutting a wire in two, the only thing you would expect would be to short it out and blow the fuse which you did not do.
It is most likely that the bulb just burnt out as a combination of unfortunate timing and perhaps a little jarring while working on the radio. These bulbs in the cluster are very sensitive as they get older, the point that I often have to change them out after removing the cluster for other work as the brief jarring can cause them to fail sometimes.Get yourself a new bulb in there and you should be fine; again with the fuses definitely OK and the transfer ecu definitely OK since the 4WD works, that really only leaves the bulb and the wiring, and there is nothing you really could have done by accident to the wiring.
